In the news this week By Team ATPB

With the state of current affairs in the US and around the world, we’re staying up to date on as much news as we can. Like many of you, we devour everything that is published on the Trump administration in an effort to keep informed about its horrible policies and so that we can share them with everyone we know (read about them every month in Nia’s “F*ck Donald Trump” series). Here’s a list of the articles and headlines about Trump and beyond that caught our attention this weekend. Check back every Monday and Friday for weekly updates. And, please share any articles that catch your attention, because sharing information is one of the most important things you can do at this moment.

Aesthetic as Activism: Joy KMT

Pretty Posts | |

If “the personal is political”, then how you dress and adorn yourself says a lot about who you are. It can also say a lot about what you want to be and who you feel connected to. As technology pushes us all to master the selfie and think of ourselves as brands, people who may not have ever had to think about their “aesthetic” are developing language around why they adorn themselves. We here at AllthePrettyBirds.com invite you to read our interview series “Aesthetic as Activism” and be inspired by these activists who opened up to us about their looks, dreams for the future and self-care routines.

This month’s feature is Joy KMT a gifted poet and healer from Pittsburgh that I met at the Voices of Our Nations Arts (www.vonacommunity.org/) writing workshop this past June. Read about how Joy sees her aesthetic as an invocation and why she doesn’t actually consider herself an activist.
