Washington CeaseFire redesign launched

It was 25 years ago that I did a pro-bono print design project for this critical gun safety non-profit. I was delighted when they contacted me about needing a new website. It was a tight timeline as they’re doing a big Smart Gun Symposium in Washington DC next week. Check it out!

Nonprofit Workshop: Mission-Driven Website Planning

Speaking of nonprofits, my friend and colleague Mark Root-Wiley is offering a “Mission-Driven Website Planning” workshop for nonprofits on September 14 at the Impact Hub. This is particularly for nonprofits planning their next website, this engaging and active workshop with follow-up consulting will prepare you to build a mission-driven nonprofit website that gets results for your organization. It’s intended for nonprofit staff approaching or in the early stages of a website project and will make sure they approach the process in a strategic, mission-focused way regardless of who they work with (DIY, volunteer, consultant, agency). It’ll be a half day + one follow-up call a few weeks later. Details and tickets are available on his website.

STP (Seattle to Portland) with Major Taylor Project

As you likely know I ride a tandem bicycle with my husband Spencer. We have done many fun adventures together including 4 STPs, RAMROD in 2005, riding across the US in 2006. The last time we did STP was 2003. But this year we decided to volunteer to ride with the Major Taylor Project high school kids. Named after Marshall “Major” Taylor, the first African-American athlete to win an international sports title, MTP reaches more than 550 students annually from low-income and diverse communities in Pierce and south King Counties. What starts out each fall as an after-school bike club develops into so much more as students explore their neighborhoods, earn bikes, and eventually finish the year by riding STP.
