I am a new media practitioner who focuses on the intersection of social media and social change. I was named one of the top ten race and civil liberties bloggers on Twitter, and nominated for the 2011 Women's Media Center Social Media Award.

I am spearheading the Cost of Freedom Project, a citizen-led initiative that is developing location-based apps to provide voters with information on how to get a photo ID. In eight states voters must present government-issued photo ID in order to vote.

Women Voters and Voter ID The right to vote is under assault. In eight states, Republicans have enacted voter ID laws that require voters to show government-issued photo ID in order to vote. While Republicans claim voter ID is needed to protect against voter fraud, there is no evidence of in-person voter impersonation. Voter ID is a solution in search of problem. Minorities and women are disproportionately impacted by voter suppression by voter ID.
