Other causes to support (since I have your attention)
I will be continuously adding to this list of organizations that I see are effectively being the better world that we want, and that are able to continue their work largely through donations. Many but not all of them are based on making change for the U.S., based in Philadelphia and Dallas, my two homes. I list orgs as I personally learn about them and as they are related to my own art practice and my community. If you like my work, there's a good chance that you'll get excited about these sources too. Please know about these creatives and activists with the same interest that you have given me. Thanks!

Educators for justice, art tutorials, and other cool things
Below, when I finally remember to add them, are some texts that have been a big part of my own growth as arts educator. Some are more pointed guides on introducing racial justice and anti-bias in the classroom, and some are just good reading in any context. And still some are invaluable art/puppetry tutorials from my own mentors.
