Yesterday #congresswoman #barbaralee posted her "Portrait of Power" taken by the @nytimes. (All 131 women of the 116th were photographed?)... . In 2015, I photographed @repbarbaralee, #oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf and a some other folks in my old #maxwellpark neighborhood near #melroseleadershipacademy where my kids attended school. . This year my daughter joined the @mlkfreedomctr that Rep. Lee helped start. 90 years ago today, Dr. King was born. Who would have guessed that we would leave our old neighborhood and still remain connected somehow? My daughter is learning bigger lessons about community (perhaps my son will too someday)... and maybe they will both learn how to lead and remain in their chosen communities. #leadership #community #canonphotography



Inspired by the words of previous Chair of the Federal Reserve, Janet Yellen and Congresswoman Barbara Lee. Encouraged by how we can all strive to work together. Also lobbying can be persuasive advocacy. #barbaralee #janetyellen #federalreserve #houseofrepresentatives



“We can’t get tired and frustrated. You have to fight, fight, fight.” With Congresswoman Barbara Lee. @berkeleyhaas @repbarbaralee #barbaralee #berkeleyhaas repost @mukul_ita



Wonderful news about our Operations Director, Tomika Perkins!

We are so proud of you, Tomika! #pride #oakland #service



Sharing from my @diversitydonewell IG - when fashion matters: Rashida Tlaib wore a Palestinian #thobe to her congressional swearing in. And for the first session of the 116th Congress, she was sworn in on Thomas Jefferson’s Quran. One of 127 women sworn in, Tlaib was not alone in wearing something eye-catching, intentional and deeply personal for the historic occasion. Representative Deb Haaland from New Mexico, a member of the Laguna Pueblo tribe, wore traditional dress. Representative Ilhan Omar from Minnesota (with Tlaib, one of the first Muslim women in Congress) wore a bright orange and yellow striped hijab and a white boucle dress. Representative Barbara Lee from California tweeted that she was “proud to wear [her] kente cloth on the House Floor.” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, along with Rep. Omar and Rep. Madeleine Dean from Pennsylvania, wore white in honor of the suffragettes. “I wore all white today to honor the women who paved the path before me, and for all the women yet to come,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “From suffragettes to Shirley Chisholm, I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for the mothers of the movement.” There was nothing unserious about these women’s outfits: Their clothes said something about who they are and the communities they represent. On a busy day with lots of photo ops—but little time for speeches—these clothes could tell part of their story for them. That’s the power of fashion when it is harnessed by someone who embraces it. “Throughout my career in public service, the residents I have had the privilege of fighting for have embraced who I am, especially my Palestinian roots,” Tlaib wrote in an essay for “This is what I want to bring to the United States Congress, an unapologetic display of the fabric of the people in this country. This is why I decided to wear a thobe when I am sworn into the 116th Congress.” (Thanks Elle magazine for this (abridged) story.) #representation #representationmatters #fashionmatters #rashidatlaib #debhaaland #ilhanomar #barbaralee #ocasiocortez #speakerpelosi 😌
