"It's hard to be what you can't see," Children's Defense Fund founder Marian Wright Edelman says; and so much of my work is about being a role model for those who don't currently see themselves.
Three years to the minute after beginning my national parks project, on April 29, 2019 I reached my final park of all 419 National Park Service sites. After becoming the first person to experience all 419 sites in a single journey, I'm now sharing the lessons learned from this journey through live performances that bring the project to life, digital content that continues to break barriers for underrepresented populations, and the written word that reaches audiences new to these important messages.
Your donations make it possible for the experience and knowledge gained through this unique project to live on and continue reaching new audiences, using travel to show the world how we have more that unites us than divides us.
Thank you for being part of that work through your support.
