I don't know whether it's because of Steven Universe or Teen Vogue or what

( representation matters )

but a number of my older friends' elementary and middle school aged children have decided that they want to join the march on the National Mall next Saturday. Since I happen to be conveniently located, it looks like I'm going to be hosting between fifteen and twenty people in my apartment. I ordered some Blu Ray movies for the kids, bought $500 worth of alcohol for the adults, and made reservations at two restaurants, a choux crème delivery service, and a taxi company. I also went to an art supply store to buy poster board, paint, glitter, and poles.

Political activism isn't always fun, but there's no reason it can't be. I think political activism should be about people coming together and finding solidarity in friendship and community, and that parents should absolutely bring their tween girls and boys to political rallies if the kids ask them to. We're going to take pictures of each other and put them all over social media while smiling and looking fabulous as we turn out to protest fascism for all we're worth, and it is going to be awesome.
