Bonnie writes about her experiences with tour activism and fundraising for a special feature in Billboard.

“One of the most important pieces of advice I was given is to try and not get discouraged. Never give up—even when it feels like the tide is turned against everything you hold dear. That’s when your passion and commitment matter even more. As my friend and inspiration Mavis Staples sings, ‘Don’t let nobody turn you around…we’re gonna keep on marchin…’ We’re all in this together—and together’s how we’ll make it through.” – Bonnie Raitt

Message on the overturning of Roe v. Wade

28 June 2022

Like many of you, I am reeling in the wake of the devastating ruling overturning Roe v. Wade and how the lives and reproductive health of women have already been impacted across the country. The stress of additional Supreme Court decisions looming this week and Justice Thomas’ intimation that other constitutionally-protected rights (to contraception and same-sex marriage) are also on the table is all weighing very heavily. The Dobbs ruling only exacerbates the inequity in health care for women of color and those communities already struggling. I think this editorial piece is particularly strong advocacy:
LA Times Editorial: Congress must protect rights to contraception and same-sex relationships

To learn more about the disproportionate suffering that the dismantling of reproductive rights will have on women of color, I recommend reading the pieces linked below.

There is much to feel and process right now, while we gather ourselves and move forward together to support women and families who are faced with immediate hardship. Let’s stay vigilant and tuned in to what activists and attorneys on the front lines are doing to protect access to safe abortions (particularly in those states that are contemplating outright bans on the procedure,) as well as to protect contraception and family planning advice. Let’s keep up our support in all the ways we can. We’re all in this together! — Bonnie

Women of color will be most impacted by the end of Roe, experts say

Op-Ed: No, Justice Alito, Reproductive Justice Is in the Constitution

In Honor of Earth Day…

22 April 2022

While we are celebrating the release of my new album today, we want to also acknowledge and promote all the wonderful events held around the world on this 52nd Earth Day and be reminded of the great actions we can all take to help protect and honor Mother Earth in these times of increasing climate crises.

While the reports have spread widely by renowned climate scientists and leaders around the world about how the tipping point of no return is looming much sooner than even predicted, let us rally our commitment to do whatever we can personally, locally and globally to change and promote policies that will allow us to conserve, re-allocate and transform how we use our limited resources to fuel our human needs.

Making a significant switch to safe energy, conserving and recycling, and adopting more  sustainable methods of managing our forests, oceans, rivers, industries and farms for both crops and raising animals— These are what I believe we can to do to help turn back the tide. Let’s not give up —we have no choice but to keep our shoulders to the wheel.

Let’s honor the Earth every day!
