My interracial, Jewish, queer, two-mom, two-daughter family feels very much under threat right now from every direction and your work gives me hope that we may overcome these threats and build a stable, secure future for everyone.
Nothing has transformed my experience more since having a child than being a part of this community.
It just feels good to know there's other awesome moms out there and just kicking ass and trying to make change and create community.
I became a member of The Double Shift because it is a platform that validated my struggles. It educated me as I took in the experiences of others and gave me the language to articulate what I had been feeling and experiencing about gendered burdens, unrealistic expectations, and the sheer exhaustion of working life’s double shift, even with the most loving life partner. It has IMPACT.
