Reunion Magazine

I've been moonlighting, Mamas.

I know, I know, I probably should have told you sooner. And I love this little blog of mine, don't get me wrong. But another master has been vying for my focus and devotion. So I feel like it's finally time I told you...

We just launched a magazine!

By we, I mean the dedicated, driven and fearless team at the Joyful Heart Foundation, founded by Mariska Hargitay to heal, educate and empower survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse and shed light into the darkness that surrounds these issues.

It's a bold mission that Joyful Heart pursues. Reunion, the magazine, is the latest addition to their impressive agenda. Intended to connect and expand the Joyful Heart community, Reunion also turns up the volume on these issues of abuse for the community as a whole by: "helping survivors and practitioners heal from trauma with thoughtful self-care; educating our supporters and partners about issues important to our cause; and empowering the wider community with ways to work together to help end the cycle of violence and abuse."

As the Editorial Director of this ground-breaking publication, I joyfully introduce you to Reunion. Read it online or sign up for a subscription to the print publication. Embrace the hope and healing it promotes. And, most importantly, talk about it. Talk to your friends, your family, your hairdresser, your school principal. Make these issues of violence against women and children your issues. Together, with voices raised, we will be heard.

Bravo! It's a beautiful publication! You should be very proud. (And hey, is that the Little One doing yoga?)

Hey, thanks! It's pretty exciting.

And yes, that is my sweet little baby making her print debut doing a three-legged dog. She was totally non-plussed when I showed her the magazine, which is awesome. She'd rather read an Angelina Ballerina book.

Congratulations! This is truly inspiring.

I assume you know about the Violence Unsilenced blog? If not, you should. It's a phenomenon.

p.s. the website is very impressive, as is your bio and photo (so purty!)

Ann, thanks so much for the props! I'm pretty excited (not that anyone can tell). It's an inspired organization with outrageously committed leadership.

Thanks for directing me to the Violence UnSilenced blog. I didn't know about it. What an amazing site.

But how wrong that we need sites and magazines like these, right?

Kind of makes me feel like screaming.
