My dear friend @tylerbatesofficial and I wrote 'Good Guys Win' back in February. Now more than ever the song feels like an anthem for our current times. Despite the unprecedented challenges we are facing, this song reminds us that we are capable of overcoming. We are capable of unity and together we are stronger than when we are divided. Tyler and I hope this song and these images will inspire you to vote and take a stand for human rights, equality, justice, the environment and our children's futures. So much is at stake this November. Please get out and vote Biden/Harris. Thank you @taylorhawkinsofficial @chrischaneybass @adam_hawkins_ and @joanne_higginbottom for making this possible. Thank you to all of our friends for holding up signs and standing with us! Link in my profile for the full video

Since we can’t play shows I’ve resorted to wearing 2011 era @sleighbells clothing while rock climbing. Neon bras, black tank tops, all over print leggings and black fingerless gloves are a mustFall fashion aside it’s been a heavy week in so many ways. Big thanks to @chris_vultaggio for taking photos and coaching me yesterday and to @emwalis_glitznstone for the most supportive belay ever. Getting out yesterday and trying hard was exactly what I needed. And thank you @bleavitt8 for introducing me to @permagumby_outdoors. The legging love is real 🥰

@chris_vultaggio just found this photo of me from last year climbing one of my favorite routes. I know it’s from last year because my bangs are above my eyebrows 🤦‍♀️ These past few weeks we’ve been preparing to take @youngwomenwhocrush outdoor climbing for the first time in 2020. Yesterday was our first trip and despite the rain we persevered and had a joyous and memorable day together. Most of our mentees’ lives have been completely upended by the pandemic and for some of them this is their first opportunity to leave NYC and see their friends in months. We’re back at the cliff tomorrow and my heart is full of gratitude for all of the mentors and partners that have made these trips possible. The @youngwomenwhocrush community has carried me through the challenges of these past few months and I’m so darn proud of each and every one of you. Extra special thanks to @adventure_untamed @evolv_worldwide @mountainskillz @mohonkpreserve @dank_brooklyn @clifbar and @catrockventures for being there every step of the way. Oh and wear your helmets kids! I’ve made a pledge to @norachagi to wear a helmet in all future climbing photos because my brain is more important than looking cute Route is V3 in the Gunks Stolen lands of the Lenape

beauty secrets for current hair and skin: 1) toss and turn in your tent for 4 nights in the Adirondack backcountry and remove at least two spiders from face 2) hydrate exclusively with filtered but slightly yellow pond water 3) bathe in aforementioned pond water 4) clean face with store brand baby wipes that are also being shared with 6 teenage girls in an attempt to make their backcountry pooping experiences slightly more pleasant 5) eat a copious amount of candy, cliff bars, dehydrated meals and oatmeal 6) breathe deeply and sweat profusely while portaging a canoe for miles through the woods 7) fall off a log into mud while filtering water at 11pm. try not to cry 8) don’t brush or wash hair for 5 days and keep your locks under a hat and in a sloppy braid 9) expose face to intense dry heat and smoke while starting morning and evening cooking fires 10) drive a van for 5hrs, listen to @lizzobeeating and @theestallion, drink coffee, eat an entire burrito and drink a @polarseltzer in bed. there you have it friends, beauty secrets revealed. you’re welcome. goodnight

There have been a lot of discussions lately on what it means to be a white ally to the BLM movement. To me being an ally means listening and taking the time to identify my own privileges and biases, and then learning how I can best support others by elevating their voices and holding space. I’m honored to be a small part of the decision to change the name of one of the Northeast’s most famous climbing routes. This decision was ultimately made by the @gunksapps team but wouldn’t have been possible without listening to the powerful voices of our community. Thank you to the BIPOC folx who took the time and energy to share their thoughts with us. If you are interested in learning more take a peek at my story and visit @gunksapps for a more detailed explanation. Also speaking of allies thank you to all the guys who messaged me last night and today and offered insights and advice regarding my hostile encounter the other day. You know who you are and I appreciate you ️ Also the light tonight after the storm was spectacular. Running felt like a good way to cleanse myself of some of my anger. Feeling better

Unedited photo of me multi-tasking in the kitchen while @chris_vultaggio makes dinner. A few updates: 1) I still have cellulite and yes I can run 10+ miles now and I workout 5+ times per week so 🤷‍♀️ LOVE YOURSELF 2) Just had a beautiful, thoughtful, eye-opening conversation with some of my favorite people on the renaming of “Shockley’s Ceiling” a famous rock climbing route here in the Gunks aka stolen lands of the Lenape. Thank you @gunksapps for listening 3) I’ve been working with some brave lil ladies in the woods the past week sweating my ass off and teaching them nature connection 4) I’ve been rock guiding womxn’s groups with @genuineclimbing. DM me if you want more info. 5) rad things are happening in @sleighbells land but I can’t really say yet so... 6) I finally get to see some of my @youngwomenwhocrush loves tomorrow and I’m fucking over the moon about it 7) I still haven’t gotten my hair cut or colored. Suggestions are welcome...8) We still need justice for Breonna Taylor 9) And ALL Black Lives will always matter.

“Take the time to learn about us. Take the time to really reach out to us and really find out who we are, where we are coming from, what we have been and what we are now.” It is always a gift to listen and learn from my dear friend Tara Benally of the Navajo Nation, @protectbearsears and @ruralutahproject. I reached out to her seeking advice on how to navigate the process of changing our high school mascot. We’ve been hearing from a lot of alums that our “warrior” mascot* honors the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape people and their ancestral homelands. This argument seems absurd to me given the fact that my hometown is majority white and that the Lenni-Lenape history has essentially been erased from the region by the hegemony of white Western economic, political, military, social and cultural institutions. If the community really wanted to “honor” the Native people of Manasquan, NJ they’d make immediate reparations and return the stolen lands. I spoke with Tara for two hours. These are just a few excerpts from our conversation. I’ll be sharing the rest of the conversation with @mhsalumniforenlightenment in the hopes that Tara’s insights will help inform the school board’s decision. More of Tara’s words below. Please share them with your communities: “Why repeat history when you can make up your mind to be something so much more than what history has been before?” “Why not take the time to just really say, Ok I wanna hear your side of the story, I wanna hear your truth. Where do you stand in all of this?” “Our kids aren’t advancing as much as they should. They’re not participating in sports like they should. So why should we be proud of the fact that you can use our name, our identity and plaster it all over your high school or on your t-shirts and be proud when you have taken the time to suppress us?” *As Tara informed me our “warrior” mascot does not even depict a “warrior” but a “chief.” To all those proud MHS Warriors out there Tara says, “The imagery they are using for a warrior there is actually the imagery of a chief. How can you say you are a warrior, when you are depicting a chief? They’re two separate things. So that concept is completely wrong.”

Pretty excited to have a mask that matches Riz’s ball But seriously very honored to be participating in the @noisefornow x @seedingsovereignty mask campaign. COVID-19 has exposed our country's chronic systemic injustices; rates of infection are rising in overburdened Indigenous communities who lack PPE, healthcare, running water and food. Meanwhile, politicians have used the pandemic to impose state-level restrictions on abortion access and forced temporary health center closures, making it even more difficult for many families to access care. This disproportionately impacts people with low incomes, people of color, and those living in remote and extremely rural communities. Here's what you can do: For every purchase of one @noisefornow X @seedingsovereignty mask or bandana, one mask will be donated to Seeding Sovereignty's Indigenous Impact Community Care Initiative for distribution to COVID-19 impacted Pueblos and reservations AND cash donations will be made to @seedingsovereignty's mutual aid work, and abortion funds serving Indigenous and undocumented people: @indigenouswomenrising and @mariposafund Masks and bandanas ethically and sustainably made by @suaysewshop Link to purchase in mine and the @noisefornow bio 🧡 #shefolkmaskup

CALLING MYSELF OUT. I never should have gotten this tattoo. Regardless of my intentions when I got it back in 2008, I see now that I was wrong. Whether it’s a tattoo or a mascot, these seemingly innocent caricatures of Native people have never been and never will be defensible. They are racist. They only serve to perpetuate stereotypes and dehumanize Native people. I know this and I am sorry. On a personal level I’m actively thinking about a cover up/change. On a more public level I’m openly supporting the brave work of my high school alums to change our “Warrior” mascot. You can visit @mhsalumniforenlightenment to sign the petition. More importantly if you have a tattoo like this or a mascot that harmfully stereotypes Native people please consider speaking up and making some reparations. We all have to get comfortable calling ourselves and our communities out. Please stop staying these images honor Native communities, they don’t. To paraphrase my friend Willie Grayeyes of @protectbearsears, they are just another humiliation in a series of humiliations experienced by Indigenous communities at the hands of white people throughout history. Oh and think twice before you say “savage” or “my tribe” or “spirit animal.” It all adds up. Thank you for reading.

Immensely grateful for @ashimashiraishi joining our @youngwomenwhocrush call today. Since I started climbing Ashima has been an inspiration to me. Today she graciously shared her time, her stories, her favorite baked goods and even her best Jazzercise moves with us Ashima along with @evolv_worldwide and @wearebraindead are stepping up in actionable ways to support BIPOC youth and other grassroots organizations that provide marginalized communities access to climbing. It’s an honor to be a part of this project along with @adaptclimbgroup @browngirlsclimbing1 @ownyour.media and @long_beach_rising Photo features the smiling beautiful faces of @marjana_tafader @e.ceni @kriskris_krissy @ashimashiraishi @deanna._.m @ervarisco @eekamonkey and @sabiha0303.

Feeling good right now. So much more to be done, but between 50-A being repealed, the DACA and LGBTQ victories in the Supreme Court, the Senate’s passage of the Great American Outdoors Act and the growing influence and strength of the BLM movement, I felt like singing a silly happy song. Also Juneteenth is tomorrow! What is Juneteenth you ask? Visit the inimitable @laura.edmondson to learn more. She has put together an incredible resource guide in her highlights. Learn a lot from her? You can pay her for her work by clicking the link in her bio. Also please visit @youngwomenwhocrush to support BIPOC youth and to learn more about how you can assist Yemen. I know I’m posting a lot of calls to action but they all matter. No time for compassion fatigue! Love you all and I hope you appreciate me singing a silly song into a magic wand

Words by @youngwomenwhocrush alumna @marjana_tafader: Oh what a wonderful feeling it is to spend time in nature and climb after almost 3 months (what seems forever) of not being out of my home. I am grateful that I had the chance to enjoy the outdoors with the most amazing person in the world @alexiskrauss. I did my first trad climb! Another skill added to the bucket. With what's been going on in the last couple of months I have been learning and reflecting on so many layers & depths of racism & inequality in America. And in regards to enjoying the outdoors, I questioned if I can enjoy the outdoors while my Black brothers and sisters can't. Do I deserve to enjoy the outdoors? I realized that I would have not gone if I was to go by myself or with a person of color only. I am not Black, but I am a Muslim and I wear a hijab and I know I too am perceived as a threat. That the outdoors aren't so welcoming of people of color. On our drive to Adirondacks we stopped by a gas station to use the restroom. But, I didn't walk in until Alexis led the way. It felt strange feeling that I didn't belong in that space but somehow having Alexis around justified my reason to be there. That being with her clarified that I wasn't a threat. Her being by the door while I used the restroom felt like a shield protecting me simply because of her race. How ironic is it that being in a white space in the middle of nowhere felt so uncomfortable and yet having someone white I know beside me felt so comforting. As an aspiring outdoorist and climber myself I have been thinking of ways to raise awareness and show my friends of color that they too deserve the outdoors! I attend a predominantly white college and was welcomed in the outdoors club not to say that I didn't often feel intimidated for being the only POC. But since day one of joining, I have been thinking of ways to make it more inclusive while trying to fit in myself too. And the first step for me is learning to not be afraid to stand up and bring to attention the lack of diversity in our club. I have been working towards educating my peers and making the club more welcoming so that my POC peers feel that they too belong in this space.

It’s not enough to have conversations with my Dad. I have to have those same conversations with myself. I am a white woman. I am in a band with a white man. Our team is white. Our crew is white. I don’t know the exact numbers but it seems the majority of our fans are white. I’ve always considered myself part of the solution but now I’m starting to think about how I’ve been a part of the problem. In my careers in both education and the outdoors I’ve focused on being an advocate for BIPOC youth. I work hard to ensure my climbing communities are inclusive and that my work as a mentor and guide is accessible to everyone. But when I really think about it, when it comes to my career in music, I haven’t put in those same efforts to cultivate inclusivity and understand intersectionality. Yes we have brought BIPOC artists on tour. Yes we have donated to BIPOC run non-profits. Yes we have BIPOC fans. But is this enough to actively dismantle white supremacy? Have we done enough to support our Black fans and to cultivate an environment that is welcoming and actively anti-racist? I don’t think we have. I know we can do better. I’m not entirely sure what “doing better” looks like right now as an artist. I have to think hard. Just know I’m going to question everything. My eyes are open. @2ndgunny

I called my Dad today. We hadn’t spoken since George Floyd’s murder. Shortly after being on the phone my Dad started really opening up about his own struggles with overt and covert racism. I asked him if I could interview him. This is a small portion of that interview. Let me preface this by saying that my Dad never taught racism to me. He taught me to value, love, respect, listen to and learn from all people. But as I got older I began to notice some of the ways he expressed racism. My Dad addresses that here and really reflects on why he harbored those feelings and why he’s recognized how dangerous “casual” racism is. He also discusses how pervasive racism is even in white communities that would never self-identify as racist. We talked for over an hour and I’ll continue posting excerpts from our conversation on my IGTV. I hope you’ll listen and have these same conversations with your loved ones.

Over the past few days I’ve had Trump supporters hashtag their hate on my page and I’ve lost close to 100 followers, but there is no fragility here. If you can’t handle me speaking out against murder then please unfollow. Remember we can only change when we are uncomfortable. Thank you to the countless people who have supported me using my platform to speak up. I don’t need sympathy for this post. Use the 30 seconds it would take to comment on this and instead click the link in my bio and donate to the real heroes out there. If I don’t post in the next few days it’s because I’m taking some time for self-care, organizing for @youngwomenwhocrush and @catrockventures, and working with Derek on new @sleighbells. Be well and keep using your voices to champion what’s right. We need you. Leaving you with some images taken by @chris_vultaggio of the Kingston, NY community

today was supposed to be about the music industry going on pause to empower black communities. i take that seriously. tried to use my voice the best way i know how. this is for my white friends: racism. wrote a song about it. like to hear it, here it go: i know it takes it more than a 1 minute song to tell white people how to right our wrongs posting black squares will never be enough so show me what you do in the board room too are you out on the streets when it’s not a trendy thing to do? does your family use slurs and claim it’s just a joke? covert white supremacy, stereotyping POC are you an Amy Cooper about to call the police? but you hashtag BLM on your social feeds how much longer will you keep saying his name? before you silence yourself as a result of your shame do you recognize your privilege? do you educate yourself? this is not their burden real allies gotta help so click on those resources and donate to those campaigns and when the polls open check the box for real change we’re gonna need more than a 1 minute song listen to the kids, know where you went wrong we gotta do better, i know that we can no justice, no peace say it again and again and again thank you to the many black voices i have listened to over the past 8 days. these words would not have been possible without you. link in profile for where to donate.

Muting myself to amplify other voices. Leaving you with these words: VOTE (or better yet RUN) They might not listen to your voice but they must listen to your vote. In the words of Terrance Floyd: “Let’s do this another way. Let’s stop thinking that our voice don’t matter and vote. Not just vote for the president, vote for the preliminaries, vote for everybody. Educate yourself. Don’t wait for somebody else to tell you who’s who. Educate yourself and know who you’re voting for. And that’s how we going to hit them, because it’s a lot of us. It’s a lot of us.” As @barackobama wrote today “the elected officials who matter most in reforming police departments and the criminal justice system work at the state and local levels.” His entire piece is worth reading. Link in bio. Vote out the racists. Run for office. Support BIPOC campaigns. Goodnight.

Thank you @barackobama. All I have to add is: STEP UP. Be there for BIPOC youth. Check-in. Empower. Be a real ally. Empathize. Organize. Share actionable resources. LISTEN and learn. Do the work and check your ego. ・・・ I want to share parts of the conversations I’ve had with friends over the past couple days about the footage of George Floyd dying face down on the street under the knee of a police officer in Minnesota.⁣ ⁣ The first is an email from a middle-aged African American businessman.⁣ ⁣ “Dude I gotta tell you the George Floyd incident in Minnesota hurt. I cried when I saw that video. It broke me down. The ‘knee on the neck’ is a metaphor for how the system so cavalierly holds black folks down, ignoring the cries for help. People don’t care. Truly tragic.”⁣ ⁣ Another friend of mine used the powerful song that went viral from 12-year-old Keedron Bryant to describe the frustrations he was feeling.⁣ ⁣ The circumstances of my friend and Keedron may be different, but their anguish is the same. It’s shared by me and millions of others.⁣ ⁣ It’s natural to wish for life “to just get back to normal” as a pandemic and economic crisis upend everything around us. But we have to remember that for millions of Americans, being treated differently on account of race is tragically, painfully, maddeningly “normal” – whether it’s while dealing with the health care system, or interacting with the criminal justice system, or jogging down the street, or just watching birds in a park.⁣ ⁣ This shouldn’t be “normal” in 2020 America. It can’t be “normal.” If we want our children to grow up in a nation that lives up to its highest ideals, we can and must be better.⁣ ⁣ It will fall mainly on the officials of Minnesota to ensure that the circumstances surrounding George Floyd’s death are investigated thoroughly and that justice is ultimately done. But it falls on all of us, regardless of our race or station – including the majority of men and women in law enforcement who take pride in doing their tough job the right way, every day – to work together to create a “new normal” in which the legacy of bigotry and unequal treatment no longer infects our institutions or our hearts.

Feeling especially grateful today that I was able to reconnect with this man. Leonard Lee is a board member of @protectbearsears, a Navajo healer and a pillar of his community. According to Leonard while he is safe and healthy, many he is close to are struggling. As Leonard taught me during our visits together, many rural Indigenous communities throughout southern Utah have long been plagued by upper respiratory issues and lung diseases, likely the result of mining waste and radioactive tailings deposits in the area. Just a reminder that this pandemic disproportionately impacts BIPOC communities who have long suffered at the hands of government corruption, environmental deregulation and systemic racism. Leonard is currently using his deep knowledge of plants and herbs to support his people. You can support him and the work of other Native elders by fighting against extraction industries and for public land protection and environmental justice. As Leonard says “It was a wonderful time when food, plants, wildlife, water were available for every one. Space for animals and the Dineh was available everywhere. The Dineh enjoyed life without rules and regulations being imposed on them, allowing them to be in harmony with nature. White folks say heaven is beautiful somewhere in the sky and when you die, you live in a city of gold forever. But to our people, heaven is here on mother earth and when you die your spirit remains on earth, in the sun light, dark night, water and wind.” Take a moment to reflect on those words and consider supporting the work of the following organizations: @protectbearsears @ruralutahproject @nativewomenswilderness @nativesoutdoors Photo: @chris_vultaggio

It’s been pretty wild reflecting on Treats and how it has shaped our lives. So much gratitude for everyone who heard it and felt something. Thank you @momandpopmusic for being there from the beginning and to @jennyfromlebloc for always being our champion and sticking with us. @will_hubbard we couldn’t have done it without you. Same goes for you @uksammyk. Shane I miss you like crazy and I wish we could hang and celebrate. To anyone and everyone who supported us in our early days we are forever indebted. Thank you @claireshaaeeffeerr for sharing the story of this album on @rollingstone today and to @stereogum for the kind words. @chris_vultaggio took this photo a couple weeks ago of me holding a painting our buddy Narm painted back in 2011. Seems like an appropriate image to capture all things, now and then. And lastly to my brother @sleighbells. So much love for you, you freak!

Mom has always loved this song so seemed like the right one to learn next. Also Bb is very difficult for me to play
