150 Entertainment folks celebrated Latinx Heritage Month on Saturday at an amazing event hosted by TimesUp and The Latinx House. It was my honor to help welcome everyone into that space alongside @activistmonicaramirez & to center Latin Americans ahead of 2020. Not only are Latinx people the largest minority electorate but civic engagement in the US affects the entire region from immigration to environmental justice and beyond. Follow @timesupnow & @thelatinxhouse for updates about their future events!

Today is #WorldMentalHealthDay and I would like to center and hold up victims of sexual violence. Due to the trauma and negative emotions linked to sexual abuse, survivors are at a higher risk for mental health conditions including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression, attachment issues, addiction, and personality disruptions. This is heightened by the way that the criminal justice system places the burden of proof on survivors. (Thank you Netflix and the team behind Unbelievable for bringing awareness to the unfortunate experiences of so many victims.) Having a mental health concern does not make you “weak” or “broken.” People cope with trauma in different ways and there are many resources for victims of sexual harassment or assault including @TIMESUP Legal Defense Fund, @metoomvmt Healing Resource Library, and @risenow.us who helps survivors pass legislation.

I had such an incredible day yesterday with @culturestrike @bldpwr and @weinspirejustice at ’Climate Woke’! @favianna1 convened storytellers around one of - if not THE most pressing issue of our time, environmental justice, with indigenous people and youth at the forefront. This is something near and dear to my heart especially with increasing destruction across Latin America due to climate change. I had a powerful time and left feeling energized & fired up about saving the planet! 🌎✨
