With all due respect to our constitution (which was written white men who enslaved our black citizens) we as a nation have amended it 27 times and it’s past time to amend it again. The idea of treating the constitution as a living document is not new. It is literally engraved in the walls in DC. “I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and Constitutions. But laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors.” ― Thomas Jefferson Follow @here4thekidsaction @momsdemand @everytown @sandyhookpromise for more ways you can help end gun violence Let @gavinnewsom know you support him and demand your governor joins him in taking action.

Share this spot with all your Bay Area Friends!! Spray parks are an amazing alternative to pools for when your outnumbered or your kids aren’t strong swimmers! If you love adorable splash pads with water falling from the sky you will love Meadow Homes Spray Park in Concord. Cost: FREE Open: daily 12-6 Park is sometimes closed for weather, maintenance or other causes call (925) 671-3366 for updates. It’s located next to an elementary school, and there is a field and playground nearby. The water park has restrooms and picnic tables (in the shade!) There is street parking - the parking lot seemed busy with a day camp while we were there. It has a little kid play area for toddlers alongside the big kid play area - but no wading or pools so it’s great for kids who can’t swim (but obviously keep an eye out for water safety) Share with all your water loving friends and follow us for more Bay Area summer fun!

We did it! We finished kindergarten! We learned so much and I am so incredibly grateful for the community we found at our school! Raising a family in the city is hard but it’s also fantastic. We heard so many negative things about public school and people expressed concern that the “traditional methods” used in public school would be too much for my rambunctious kids, but these kids thrived. Their teachers were so intentional about getting to know them and understanding their unique learning needs. We are incredibly grateful! Swipe for the first day of school!

☀️It’s going to be a sunny event filled family friendly weekend in SF ☀️ If you appreciate these curated list, you can show your gratitude by going to the fundraiser on my previous post and giving to @everytown

ni uno más Not one more I wear orange in hopes that someday Not one more person will receive the phone call Not one more person will wait to find out if their loved one survived Not one more person will shake on the ground as they weep Not one more person will cling to life Not one more person will become a survivor I wear orange because I thought that phone call would destroy me and although we survived- I never wanted to become a survivor I wear orange to End Gun Violence Guns are the number one cause of death in children in America The risk of suicide is 9 times greater in homes where a gun is present #momsdemand #endgunviolence #wearorange #enoughisenough #gunviolence #commonsensegunlaws #banassaultweapons #protectkidsnotguns

👋🏼Hi! I’m Sarah and I’m a multi passionate creator and human. I’m a life coach, postpartum doula, and lifestyle photographer. I also share local SF family adventures at @sarahromontoya along with thoughts on advocacy opportunities both locally and nationally. I believe parenting should be fun and children should be celebrated as valuable parts of our communities. I hope my tips will help you have more fun and enjoy SF and the Bay Area. I talk a lot about gun control, reproductive rights, women’s rights, paid leave, and access to quality education - but I’m also deeply concerned with all the ways we fail women & children of all backgrounds in this nation. I’m getting ready to offer group coaching, workshops, and hikes in the fall - and of course I’d love to photograph your family! DM to join my mailing list! Also, if you see me IRL please say hi! 👋🏼

What were you taught about Memorial Day? Because this definitely isn’t the history I was taught. When I learned about slavery the enslaved people brought to America were never treated like humans - even in my history books. They were treated as secondary characters to the enslavers, never the primary subject. The beauty of people who had just barely left the trauma of slavery taking the time to provide proper burials to Union soldiers is such an important part of our history. “According to Blight’s 2001 book Race and Reunion: The Civil War in American Memory, a commemoration organized by freed slaves and some white missionaries took place on May 1, 1865, in Charleston, S.C., at a former planters’ racetrack where Confederates held captured Union soldiers during the last year of the war. At least 257 prisoners died, many of disease, and were buried in unmarked graves, so black residents of Charleston decided to give them a proper burial.” Source: TIME Magazine, The Overlooked Black History of Memorial Day; Author: OLIVIA B.
