fight the ban

The current administration has instructed the armed services to begin discharging transgender service members beginning April 12, 2019. Despite the fact that military recruitment is down. Despite the fact that transgender people are 20x as likely to serve than anyone else.

We (a ragtag team of LGBTQ+ and allies) worked with the Minority Veterans of America, designing posters for a local rally to fight the ban. It all came together in just a few short days, and we got some great coverage for a great cause.

Flock together | A networking app for new moms

Motherhood can be really isolating. If you’re in a new city trying to make friends (let alone, friends as new to motherhood as you, or with kids the same age), a lot of women turn to mommy groups. To help ease the awkwardness of exchanging numbers or friending each other too soon on Facebook, we created an app called Flock Together.

The goal was simple: to connect these moms to each other outside their meetups—to provide a hub for encouragement, support, and networking.

When the app was launched, we spread the good news in MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) magazine and in brochures at MomCon.
