The @empirestatebldg is on board for #EarthHour 2017! Are you? Every year, hundreds of millions of people around the world switch off their lights for one designated hour to demonstrate a commitment to fighting climate change. Earth Hour takes place TOMORROW at 8:30 p.m. local time. There’s never been a more critical moment for the world to show solidarity for and a strong commitment to fighting climate change. By going dark, local government, cities, companies, landmarks, and individuals send the message that we will remain steadfast as we deliver on the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement. Momentum is on our side. The world is looking toward a renewable future. This Earth Hour, turn up the dark and get loud about climate action.
Students in a Utah GSA have been learning about our client #GavinGrimm and anti-trans laws that have been popping up in states across the country. Their members drew pictures and wrote letters to Gavin to let him know how much he has inspired them and that he has their support, and we wanted to share a few with all of you out there who are afraid of what these bills do to empower profiling and expelling trans and non-binary people from public spaces. The law is on your side and we're with you every step of the way ✊️ #StandWithGavin#transrights#lgbt#lgbtrights#transisbeautiful#gsa
"'It's not a trend. It's just that now it's acceptable to discuss it. It's acceptable to come out now. It was so scary before,' Cyrus tells TIME. The 24-year-old says that going public about her feelings, and providing support to LGBTQ youth through her nonprofit Happy Hippie Foundation, is what she's most proud of in her career. Examples like Cyrus can help young people who feel they are constantly explaining themselves to doubters." -Excerpt from this week's @time cover story about gender featuring our founder @mileycyrus along with @tywrent, @glaad, and other leaders. #Repost@time ・・・
