Hijab Solidarity in an Uber Ride

On the way to another shoot, I met one of the founders of Lilith Magazine, a publication that empowers Jewish Feminists. She was wearing a hijab in solidarity in light of Trump's "Muslim Ban." And this got me thinking..

CALLED IT.

Barely a week after activists stave off Construction of DAPL, the Belle Fourche pipeline spilled 176,000 gallons into the Ash Coulee Creek - just 150  miles away from the water protectors’ encampment. So.. How safe are those pipelines again?

LIKE A ROCK: STANDING ROCK WINS.. FOR NOW.

The US Army Corps of Engineers announced Sunday that it has rejected the permits for DAPL to be built through land sacred to the Standing Rock Sioux tribe. In reality, it took the largest gathering of Native American tribes in history, just to get the pipeline rerouted. Also, the activists are still staying. The fight’s not over just yet.
