A Turning Point - A Texas Style Impeachment
At long last, the Texas Legislature has impeached Attorney General Ken Paxton, a guy with more baggage than the average Delta Airlines flight. It remains to be seen whether the State Senate will convict. This guy is vindictive, reminding me that when you take a swipe at the king, you’d better not miss. We examine the facts in this short essay. I hope you’ll listen.

Off Kilter TCF S417 E58 06 - 02 - 23 V1 PV
This week, Off-Kilter is wrapping up our ongoing series digging into why in the famous words of Audre Lorde, “self-care is political warfare. A recurring theme uplifted by several guests throughout this series has been the importance of bringing your whole self to the work—a phrase that, like so much within the topic of self-care, has become watered down enough in recent years that it’s about as likely to spur eye rolls as genuine interest in many circles. So to dig a little deeper beneath the surface of what it really looks like to bring one’s whole self to social justice work, Rebecca sat down with the brilliant Andraea Lavant, a longtime disability justice advocate, to delve deeply into the subject of claiming one’s identity, and what that looks like as part of self-care. We had a far-ranging conversation about Andraea’s own journey to claim all parts of her identity as a black, disabled, queer woman, and how that ultimately led her to start a strategy and communications firm focused on culture shift and building a society and an economy where disabled people of color belong.
