Preventing and Countering Election-Motivated Violence Without Causing Panic:

At first glance, the terrorist threat that recently captivated the nation—a thwarted attempt by a militia cell to kidnap Governors Gretchen Whitmer and Ralph Northam—may appear to be an anomaly—a one-off plot hatched by a fringe group influenced by the “boogaloo” movement, but with fewer followers. Or it could be part of a pattern of growing extremist activity in the run up to the 2020 presidential elections. Our efforts at the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) currently focus on mitigating the potential for Election Day violence. https://www.lawfareblog.com/preventing-and-countering-election-motivated-violence-without-causing-panic

The Unyte.Life brand promotes racial justice and equality by giving Black Americans and allies ways to express their goals through art, apparel, and more.
In doing so, people from all walks of life come together to create a better future for the America we all share.
Unyte is the brand for allies. Unyte is for you, your neighbor, your friend, your co-worker, your family… for everyone.
Join the movement and use your voice to make others heard.

Are We Trading Our Happiness for Modern Comforts?
As society gets richer, people chase the wrong things with Arthur C. Brooks

One of the greatest paradoxes in American life is that while, on average, existence has gotten more comfortable over time, happiness has fallen.

“Self-Care with Friends” with Kelli Pease:
I created the “Self-Care with Friends” workbook because of the difficulty I was having connecting with my friends over the last 6+ months during COVID. The workbook allows people to connect with friends and complete an 8-week self-care challenge together from a distance. I am giving the workbook away for free (both hard copies and digital copies) because I’m so passionate about helping people during 2020, a hard year for most of us.

The Beatles- We CAN Work it Out:
“In We Can Work It Out, Paul did the first half, I did the middle eight.
But you’ve got Paul writing, ‘We can work it out, we can work it out’ – real optimistic, y’know, and me impatient, ‘Life is very short and there’s no time for fussing and fighting my friend’.” (John Lennon)
Even the Beatles had to compromise and work it out and this video clip is adorable!
