As we get closer to Ulysses’ 1st birthday (May 7), we’re trying to catch up on posting photos. There’s more than a 6 month gap to close, so expect several more updates in the coming days and weeks. This one covers Halloween through Thanksgiving 2015.
I’m very excited to announce the launch of justshelter.org, which serves as a portal for raising awareness of eviction’s role in perpetuating poverty, for sharing eviction stories, and for locating housing resources. Under the auspices of our design company Flare/ Fade, Noele Lusano and I created the site for Harvard sociologist and 2015 MacArthur Fellow Matthew Desmond. The project was conceived as a companion to Desmond’s book, the just-released “Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City,” which you will likely be hearing about in the coming weeks as Desmond promotes it across the country.
Just Shelter has already received mention in the New York Times, the Chronicle of Higher Education, and several other national media outlets.
Here is a list of Christmas suggestions for Uly, in case you needed some hints!
In the spreadsheet, please indicate if you’ve purchased any of the items — and if we can use multiples of them (e.g. clothes items), indicate the quantity.
Thank you very much and merry Christmas!
Reorient Journal (the blog for Reorient Naturals, a California-based herbal products company) is the end product of another fruitful collaboration with Noele Lusano, whose original designs I drew upon to build the site.
