amberrosetamblyn With more than 175,000 COVID deaths, 16 million people unemployed, thousands of children separated from their families and caged, I have just one question.
I designed this mask to benefit NARAL @prochoiceamerica . Support them and order yours today at TiredOfWinning.Store (link in bio).
Masks are also available in blue and black.
💥💥UPDATE💥💥 Breitbart has reported on this mask now so I’m turning off the comments so as to not allow bigots to post here (they’ve already started.) Thank you Breitbart for inadvertently helping us raise more money for a pro-choice org! 😘
amberrosetamblyn My friend @PaolaMendoza has a new book coming out September 1st! It’s a YA novel that tells the fictional story of a dystopian America, a totalitarian regime, and a 16-year-old undocumented girl who decides to fight back. I’m so excited to sit down with Paola this Tuesday for her virtual book tour to talk about immigration, art, and #SanctuaryBook . Tune in to my IG on August 25th at 9pm ET and pre-order the book at the link in @PaolaMendoza ’s bio.

amberrosetamblyn ⭐️ CALLING ALL CREATIVES! ⭐️
Next Friday I will be performing virtually at the @awfulgoodwriters ’ Heavy Hitters Festival (founded by @buddywakefield ) and reading from all six of my books—from poetry to nonfiction, to cultural criticism and op-eds, to fiction—and giving a light workshop on how to write and create across genres. I'll be reading poems, excerpts, essays, and a few never-before-published pieces too. If there's something specific you want me to read or talk about from any of my books or writing, drop a line below in the comments and let me know! You just might hear me read it, dedicated to you. 😜
August 21st at 9pm EDT, tickets available at AwfulGoodWriters.com (link in bio).
amberrosetamblyn The audio from this @lincolnproject.us ad is from my husband David Cross’ 2018 standup special, “Oh Come On.” You can find it on Amazon Prime and other streaming services. If you haven’t seen it, you should (also the punchline for this very long joke is spot on)— it’s brilliant satire that’s both ahead of it’s time, and sadly, already behind how fast Trump has been able to destroy this country. #FirstThingsFirst#VoteTrumpOut
amberrosetamblyn New national #paygap survey from @timesupnow and supported by @lunabar : About HALF of Latinx and Black women do not have enough money right now to pay for basic needs. Swipe through for more.

amberrosetamblyn What is the challenge? What does it mean to accept it? When I close my eyes, I think of you. All of you. I see you as I wish to see myself. Relaxed. Calmed. Anger expelled, despair pummeled, anxiety, washed away. When I close my eyes, I see you smiling, lost in the offerings of kindness, joy-held, all the world’s cruelty unharnessed. When I close my eyes, I see you— the you you’ve forgotten. The you you’ve been held from. The you you had to hide, put away, protect, silence, leave, rediscover. When I close my eyes, I see your arms, and I see my arms. I see them wrapping around each other’s lonesome, beaten down bodies, holding each other’s pain, holding each other’s space, holding each other’s fear. When I close my eyes, I see you letting go of what is out of your control, your jaw unclenched, your body not inflamed, your head without its daily pounding, your nightly horrors, and daily nightmares, gone. I see your heart thriving. I see you dancing, sweating, grinding, laughing, kissing, combusting with promise. I see you as not just a life, but alive. Living. #ChallengeAccepted#femicideawareness#istandwithturkishwomen
(EDIT: This challenge is also important to bring to light the violence and injustice womxn in Turkey are facing right now. I stand with them.)
amberrosetamblyn John Lewis, you changed the world every day that you lived, and you will continue to do so. You inspired us, calmed us, ignited us, and lead us with grace, strength and purpose. It’s particularly devastating to have lost you in this particular year. I wasn’t ready for it. But your spirit and legacy will live on in all of us, and we will continue to fight in your name, just as you did for decades for all of us. Rest now, you most extraordinary and beloved soul. #RIPJohnLewis
