William McRaven is a retired Navy admiral, who oversaw our Seal Team during the Bin Laden raid, and served as commander of U.S. Special Operations Command from 2011-2014. He penned this article, titled “Biden Will Make America Lead Again,” for the Oct. 20th, 2020 issue of the @wsj. I respect Mr. McRaven’s service and sensibility greatly. While we don’t agree on every point, we both know that we don’t have to in order to be neighbors and compatriots. What we do agree on is leadership; what it takes to lead with decency and respect. We both agree that @joebiden is the man for the job. Let’s make America lead again. Pass this on to anyone in your life who hasn’t voted yet if it’s helpful. Sending you all love, and praying for us. #vote

Today is a big day! We’ve officially launched @nymag x @iamavoter • #repost @nymag More Americans than ever are voting by mail this year. Millions more are voting early compared to the last national election. All of them deserve their “I Voted” sticker. So, in collaboration with @iamavoter, we brought together 48 artists to design stickers for a series of four covers for our new issue — with contributions from Amy Sherald, KAWS, Barbara Kruger, and many more. Each magazine cover will feature images of 12 sticker designs with a corresponding peelable sticker sheet on the inside. “We’re in a moment in which people need to awaken to their own power and potential so we can alter the course of this country, and by voting we are activating that, and going into November 3rd and beyond together with our eyes open,” says Hank Willis Thomas of his sticker. The magazine hits newsstands on Monday, October 26th, and is available for pre-order at the link in our bio. #iamavoter • So proud of our team!! Pick up a copy of “Democracy” and get your sticker! Stickers will also be handed out at numerous locations around the country, including polling sites like the @hammer_museum, bookstores and cultural institutions, @ehehealth and retailers like @crateandbarrel @cb2, @warbyparker @shopclarev @motherdenim @cynthiarowley @shopdoen @zeromcornejo and more! #iamavoter #ivoted #voteearly #useyourvoice

Some good news today! ️ I am ELATED to finally share with y’all that I am joining the @weareangelcity ownership group. This is a lifelong dream. This took decades of hard work, goal-setting, and most importantly, team-building with an incredible group of women who I am honored to call friends and collaborators. • The quote pictured here reads: “As a lifelong soccer fan, having a women’s football club in my hometown is a dream come true. Being a part of a leadership group like this one, filled with women and allies who are passionate about building community both on and off the field, who care about legacy, integrity, and the advancement of female athletes, is thrilling. We have a big vision and a brilliant group of collaborators working to make it a reality; both for the world class athletes who will wear our jerseys, and the young girls here in LA and around the world who will watch them play. Passion and purpose meet on our field. It’s exhilarating.” • The gratitude! The JOY! LFGGGGGG FAM! #WeAreAngelCity #AngelCityFootballClub

I took a roadtrip to #Nevada, yesterday, to join the incredible #BidenHarris2020 ground team and celebrate NV’s first #voteearly day. Their ride is definitely way cooler than mine! Got to hang — both virtually + distanced — with college voters, phonebank teams, and get my mascot on, handing out swag and cheering early voters too! I really should have asked the Lakers to borrow their t-shirt cannon ... next time! We have 16 days, y’all! The election is NOW! Let’s vote for decency, a White House that cares about ALL Americans. • Joe + Kamala have solutions for us! From having an actual COVID-19 response plan, a recovery plan, and relief; an +18.6 million jobs plan; infrastructure and green jobs; plans that will help everyone, from our farmers in Iowa and our suffering west coast families from Washington to Oregon to Cali; a free state college plan that’ll pay for itself and grow the US GDP over 10 years; AND!? They’re working tirelessly to unite this country. Whether we are next door neighbors, next county neighbors, or state line neighbors, WE are all Americans and WE are in this together! Text BUS to 30330 to join the team. #BuildBackBetter

Y’ALL!! THE CENSUS IS V IMPORTANT!! TODAY is the LAST day you can take it! *Because the folks currently in charge WANT you to go uncounted! That’s f**ked!* WHY do your census results matter?? The 2020 census helps determine how BILLIONS of dollars in federal funding (ahem! Our tax money!) will flow into your state and local communities, including: health clinics, disaster relief, schools, highways, public transportation, housing assistance, wildlife restoration, and THE NUMBER OF SEATS your state gets in the House of Representatives.         With just 9 questions, it will take less than 10 minutes of your time. (I did mine in 6.5 mins! It’s easy!) It is also available in 13 languages. You can complete the 2020 Census online at 2020census.gov until 10/16/20 at 5:59AM EST. DO NOT GO UNDER-RESOURCED BECAUSE YOU WENT UNCOUNTED! Be COUNTED! You deserve that! #becounted #iamavoter

I’ve been thinking about writing this, and sharing some of this, for weeks. But maybe months • pt. 1 • I’ve been thinking a lot about sustainability. Both in terms of what it means to this beautiful planet; our only home, and in terms of what it means to sustain us. As humanity. As a community. As people. As — in small-p perspective — myself. I am overwhelmed with the state of the world. With the constant trauma parade of assault on our rights, our dignity, and the gaslighting of an entire group who says “you aren’t seeing the things you’re seeing with your own eyes,” and “you’re overreacting” when we are decidedly not. This is having an intense and terrifying ripple effect in the world around us. Folks are suffering. Struggling. And scared. We are also determined. We will not go down without a fight. We are activated by the truth. We are never going back to “before,” to a status quo that does harm to so many, but we do not know the way forward and the path is littered with traps made of disinformation and fomented hatred. It’s a lot. For me, as an empath who struggles with self-care, as a person who will often bend over backwards at the cost of my own vertebrae to serve others, lose sleep to show up where I can be helpful, and sacrifice my own goals to make sure I’m as educated as I can be on other people’s realities, a time which calls for service and activation AS WELL as staying healthy has felt largely impossible. As I write this, I have 401 unanswered text messages. They started piling up in February when I was prepping in Canada. Then the pandemic hit & the government failed us, & I was never able to catch up. Before I let my What’sApp uninstall itself from being long neglected due to being spread too thin, 50 threads were active. There are >4,200 emails in my inbox. I’ve fallen so far behind on DMs, both here + Twitter (just from cohorts) that I fear I’ll never find them all. I feel like I am working on my phone, and in communication with folks, all day everyday. And I just cannot catch up. I cannot KEEP up. I say all of this not to seem popular or to ask for pity. I say it to get honest about the very real toll that this year has taken. (cont’d)

pt.2 • How much I feel like I’m failing, despite the nonstop working and organizing and volunteering and and and. To bare a little of my soul. Of the parts that we often leave off of Instagram. These last few weeks it’s gotten especially intense. The tightness in my chest has been relentless. The anxiety causing my TMJ to fire up, and my teeth to grind all night, hasn’t abetted for a single second. This year it’s come in waves, but lately I feel like I’m standing on the receiving end of a firehose. I’m tired. And I know you are too. I’m feeling all of it, & it hurts. And I know many of you are hurting too. And I am holding the folks who are hurting even more so so so tightly in my heart, & praying for relief for all of us. If you’re a human I haven’t managed to get back to, please don’t take it personally. I’ve seen notes come in while I’m on action/organizing zooms all day, & by day’s end they’re in the abyss. I love you & I also feel like I can barely keep my head above water right now. We’ll find each other soon. And if you’re having a hard time out there, may I suggest a walk in the quiet? *Not everyone has a bestie whose grandad bought a cabin in the woods decades ago that you can take your #quaranteam to for a much needed disconnection from chaos that’ll give you your smile back I know I’m V lucky* but if you can get outside & look UP? Marvel at the sky? Watch a bird? Listen to the trees in a park, or in your neighborhood, it’s a lifesaver in times like these. Take a drive somewhere quiet. Take a moment to relish in the rhythm of this planet. We need to find pauses. We deserve to disconnect. To be sustained. By nature & by fresh air & by the people who will hold us close in our hard moments & remind us that no matter how behind we feel, we are loved, needed, & enough. We need to remember that we cannot do it all. That no one can. That we are in this together. 🤎🤍 (and please oh please if you are going to see anyone new, or are thinking about a quaranteam/pod merger, make sure everyone has taken the proper isolation measures and been tested. I know I know, you know, but you also know that I worry okay️) How are you all taking care of your #mentalhealth?

Today is International #DayOfTheGirl ‍♀️‍♀️‍♀️‍♀️‍♀️️ and when I think about girlhood, I think about all of the messages I received. They were often confusing and contradictory. Looking back, I realize I was often told that I was SUPPOSED to be nice/sweet/cute, palatable, small, polite, and that I shouldn’t be “controversial” because that would be a “turn off,” for boys and eventually men, or colleges, or network executives or audiences, or whatever invisible human might not like me with an opinion attached. But I CHOSE TO be an advocate for justice, to speak up when I saw wrong-doing, to fight for the little guy, to demand better of others and of myself, to lead with empathy but take no shit, to be willing to learn in public and make my fallibility an open book, and to educate myself as deeply and frequently as possible so that I could best serve others. I shrugged off what I was SUPPOSED TO be and pursue what I CHOSE TO become. It hasn’t always been easy, but it has been honest. It hasn’t always been simple, but it has been deep. It hasn’t always been fun, but I have found oh so much joy throughout the journey. I wouldn’t have it any other way. And today in particular, elevating the opportunities afforded to girls (and womxn) has never been more important. Morally, women deserve to thrive without experiencing oppression based on their gender, or harassment, or assault. Fiscally, we are leaving trillions of dollars a year on the world’s table by underpaying women. The global GDP would soar if we achieved parity. That means that both happiness and prosperity would increase if we valued women and girls the way we should. So let’s go! I am living proof that there is joy to be found in forging your own path. That there is justice to be grasped by advocating for your community. That there is vast potential to be tapped if we lean in to our girls. So let’s. Tell me what you were SUPPOSED TO do, and what you CHOSE TO do instead, as you chose yourself. @girleffect

Ambition is something I admire in womxn. There’s lots of folks out there who fear our power — we are the majority of voters and the majority of the population after all — and want to detract from our ambition, or make us ashamed of it. To those people? I say GOOD LUCK! We aren’t going anywhere. We are taking up space and fighting for each other and building big, beautiful communities rooted in justice and joy. We are the @supermajority, after all. And our pals at @argent are helping to raise funds for Supermajority’s incredible work with this incredible, limited edition #bosslady suit. And y’all know there is nothing I love more than a power suit, and an empowered woman in one! I’m suited up for this debate tonight — let’s gooooo @kamalaharris!! — and for the work to come. My womxn!! We will decide this election, and everything that happens afterward, with how we show up, how we commit, how we organize, and how we continue to show up. We got this. Let’s boldly take up space and do the work for a better future. I love you! #AmbitionSuitsYou #Supermajority (also ... #notanad)

Today I found this picture from one of my favorite places on Earth: Paradise Valley, #Montana. It got me thinking about how much I love this country; each and every part of it. How I think it’s worth fighting for and loving fiercely. We often get asked what we are voting for, but what about WHO we vote for? #ImVotingFor immigrants, like my Dad and my Mom’s Momma who came through Ellis Island, from Italy. I’m voting for frontline workers, and essential workers, and for our military and our veterans. For clean air, clean water, the protection of our national parks, and job creation that will prioritize people and the planet. For the food industry, restaurant workers, and small business owners. For better pay for our teachers, and better protections for our students. For racial justice, gender justice, environmental justice, and justice and equal protections for our LGBTQ+ community. For union workers — some who you might know like me and my coworkers ;) AND the entire crew behind each and every show and movie you’ve ever seen. For infrastructure workers, and for safer jobs for them that’ll raise their quality of life and safety. I’m voting for kids with preexisting conditions, and to end the practice of putting kids in cages. For an end to private prisons, and a better voting system that allows everyone’s voice to be heard. For my friends in Cali, North Carolina, New York, Alaska, Montana, Illinois, and everywhere in between. For science. For truth. For kindness. For decency. For a return to listening, and a new path toward unity. We deserve that. We all do. That’s why I’m voting #BidenHarris2020

Melanie Thompson is a survivor of child sex trafficking and an advocate + activist. She works to raise awareness about the pervasiveness and harm of commercial sexual exploitation, and advocates for anti-trafficking law and policy. She works tirelessly to educate legislators and the public about #childsextrafficking, and was a major contributor to the passage of the Trafficking Victims Protection and Justice Act in 2015. Melanie has taught me so much in my quest to understand a pervasive and toxic trade that preys on the vulnerable, and it is my supreme honor to have this #micdrop level conversation with her today. Every time we speak she makes my brain go 🤯 and I love love love experiencing her profound and rooted vision of justice!

This week has been a long year. My god. By this afternoon I felt physically sick to my stomach after barely sleeping and being glued to the news all week (who hasn’t!?). So I decided to intervene on my own behalf and dive into what feeds my soul and reminds me of how amazing human beings can be. For the last few months that’s been a deep dive on #cardiothoracicsurgery. It started as research for my new show, but then #covid shut down all film and television production. Stressful. So many of us, across industries and across the country have been wondering when we’ll ever be able to return to the work we’ve known and loved. But the silver lining of this very long pause before I make this project is the incredible amount of time that I’ve been able to devote to learning. About myocardial infarction, ventricular fibrillation or “vfib,” pulmonary edema, cardiac tamponade, and the evolution of heart transplant technology which required incredible steps in med tech to allow for the development of cardiopulmonary bypass, the Jarvik 2000 (preceded by the AB-180) and more recently the ECMO. • Reading the works of @atul.gawande, @kathymagliato, and most recently this incredible memoir “Open Heart” by #StephenWestaby. I spent my afternoon cataloguing my notes from this book into the massive google doc that I’ve been keeping as research for GOOD SAM. I know that sounds nerdy, but it makes me happy. I really miss scrubbing into the OR during open heart surgeries to learn firsthand. So books, books, and more books are filling the void. Note-taking and deep research is meditative for me. And taking notes on a subject like this one just reminds me of what utter heroes our #doctors and #firstresponders are. They save folks like us, every day. Then wake up and repeat. We are so lucky. I am sending so much love and gratitude to our #frontlineworkers from my research zone tonight. With every line I type into this document, I say a little prayer for y’all. Thank you. ‍⚕️ And to my insta-fam, remember to take some time to take care of yourselves right now. We build strength and stamina in moments of self-care. And we need it. 30 days! Much love.

For the folks who didn’t bother to read the caption here ya go! These are the lies that 45 told us that I — and so many other Americans — want answers about. • 204,000+ dead Americans never had the chance to take the experimental antibody cocktail made by Regeneron that 45 was given today. 204,000+ families lost a sister, father, spouse, or child. Those people died alone, in isolation in hospital beds without their loved ones. And now that 45 has it, after making fun of people wearing masks and telling people that criticisms of his abject failure to contain the disease — including his disbanding the pandemic response network at the CDC — was a “hoax” drummed up by his political opposition rather than the entire medical community saying he was putting us all in harms way? • I’ll say it again. We. Deserve. Answers. This is a dereliction of duty. His diagnosis doesn’t change that. But I sure as hell hope this timeline wakes some of you up. I sure as hell hope you see, in black and white, that he was willing to sacrifice your life so he could win again. Wear a fucking mask. And have some compassion for your fellow Americans who died needlessly on the President’s watch as he LIED to us all but admitted the dangers behind the scenes.
