Why is it called the BREATHE ACT? Yes, we are honoring #EricGarner and #GeorgeFloyd ‘s last words. But this is also for the millions of us who want to breathe freely. This is also in honor of the lives of those stolen by police and state-sanctioned violence - Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Natasha McKenna, George Floyd, Aiyana Stanley-Jones, Elijah McClain, Pearlie Golden, Kayla Moore, Freddie Gray, Atatiana Jefferson, Oscar Grant, and far too many more. Who created it? @mvmnt4blklives M4BL, founded in 2014, is a coalition of 150 abolitionist organizations Representatives Rashida Tlaib and Ayana Presley support the bill. What does is propose? Radical transformation of our criminal-justice system To all those who have questioned defunding the police and transforming our system as realistic, THIS is how it happens.

I need to shout from the rooftops that @go .for.hammer created #expectingamy and these are all the other people that he listed who created our series and I want to shout out @domino_kirke for being my doula who is about to have her own honey any day. Doulas are essential healthcare workers. RN Kimber macGibbon at the @hgmoms and every nurse and doctor who kept Gene and I alive through my pregnancy. If you have #hyperemisisgravidarum survive 💕
I am proud to be partnering with @Tampax ! When Tampax told me that there were many women who know so little about their bodies I wanted to do something about it right away. Please check out this video I did a couple months back. Go to @Tampax IG page to watch the full video #TimeToTampax
It’s a 3 part docuseries about forming a comedy special while being violently ill from pregnancy. Doesnt that sound fun?!! It is. The reviews are really nice and I’m really proud we didn’t know if we would even do anything with the footage. But it was shaped from clay by our true director and genius @go .for.hammer shot by mostly myself and chris and @marcusrussellprice produced by @mugsykane and supported by my favorite friends and family.

Women of color are 12 times more likely to die unnecessarily during child birth in New York City. 4 percent everywhere else. Did you know that? This woman died in Brooklyn at woodhull hospital a few days ago and never met her little girl. #shaasiawashington scream her name. There’s a go fund me for her in my bio but we need to wake up and do better every day.
