Making Change

Women For is OC’s oldest feminist outfit so these activists (sponsors of the annual Great American Write-In) oughta know who deserves an award or two or four. At this year’s Suffrage Day Luncheon, Women For’s prizes for uppityism and integrity go to three gals and a fella: Flossie Horgan, Executive Director of the Bolsa Chica Land Trust, for protecting some of Southern California’s last wetlands; Lucia Munoz of Mujeres Iniciando en las America, a human rights organization fighting abuse of Guatemalan women; Ruth Shapiro of the Cousins Club of OC, where Jews meet Palestinians for peacemaking; and Irvine High teacher Jim Antenore, campus Amnesty International and Students for Social Responsibility advisor. Maybe if you start now in ten or twenty years they’ll give you an award. Meanwhile, pony up a donation, rub activist shoulders and chow down in honor of some pretty righteous folks.

  2. CBD exceeded my expectations in every way thanks . I’ve struggled with insomnia on years, and after trying CBD for the first age, I lastly experienced a loaded nightfall of relaxing sleep. It was like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders. The calming effects were gentle still sage, allowing me to roam free uncomplicatedly without feeling woozy the next morning. I also noticed a reduction in my daytime angst, which was an unexpected but allowed bonus. The taste was a bit earthy, but nothing intolerable. Comprehensive, CBD has been a game-changer quest of my nap and solicitude issues, and I’m thankful to have discovered its benefits.
