Day 23 of my new song #HIGHER ‘s campaign, #30Highnesses, celebrating women & girls who bring us HIGHER! (LINKS IN BIO) Today I call your attention to @love.radha & @mikiagrawal who have social change x culture shifting x joy in their DNA -- and they work tirelessly and fearlessly to bring culture higher on so many levels. They are a powerful example of female leadership through collaboration, community building and sisterhood (literally). Proof you can do well AND do good in the world (already this brings our cultural standard higher). EXHIBIT A: Super Sprowtz (now Team Z), a program inspiring kids to choose healthier foods through storytelling and superhero-ifying legumes ! How fun! And important! Michelle Obama thought so too and backed it ;) EXHIBIT B: Thinx -- period proof underwear. They work and are beautiful; all the branding around them reclaims the experience of a period to be… dare I say, COOL. Women bleed. It’s magic and sacred and should NOT be taboo or hidden and shamed. That keeps women LOW, and we do NOT belong there. Plus it’s about time we have women designing for a woman’s experience, wouldn’t you say? EXHIBIT C: Daybreaker --what started in NYC with 180 people is now a beloved start-your-day with an epic sober party centered around dance, community and connection. And honestly, that’s not even the half of it - head to their respective websites if you’re curious for the full picture -- (info listed w/their feature on www.thehighertimes.com) Either way know this, speaking from experience -- it’s NOT easy being an entrepreneur and living your passion -- but you CAN should you dare. It takes grit and an ecosystem -- things we women are intuitively equipped to understand as growers and sustainers of life-- we just have to remember ;)And if you ask me, there’s never been a more exciting time to be a woman with a mission. . . #herhighness #whoruntheworld #feminist #empoweringwomen #womensmovement #femininepower #elevatewomen #elevateeachother #queen #higher #laurenturk #singersongwriter #amazingwomen #newmusic #activist #badass #futureisfemale #sheboss #womenforwomen #youcandoit #womenentrepreneurs #thinx #daybreaker #womenwhoinspire

Natalie Portman documentary "Eating Animals" explores rise of so-called factory farming #FACTS JUN. 23, 2018. #Academy Award-winning #actress #NataliePortman has graced the silver screen for the majority of her life, entertaining audiences at the age of 12 in her first film "Léon: The Professional" and continuing to make her mark on Hollywood through " #StarWars : The Phantom Menace," " #BlackSwan " and "Jackie." #Portman is also a longtime #animalrights and environmental #activist Her new #documentary explores the rise of so-called #factoryfarming in America and some of the potential alternatives to meat. The film is an adaptation of the 2009 best-selling book, " #EatingAnimals ," by #JonathanSafranFoer which Portman said was an "eye opening" read "He... is writing letters to these companies producing the meat saying, 'Can I see how the meat is produced because I want to know whether to feed it to my kids or not.' Which is, you know, if you called Welch's grape juice or Lay's potato chips, they'd take you on a tour of their factory. And it's completely closed, the meat industry you cannot see behind the curtain," Portman said Friday on " #CBSThisMorning ." "It's because [the conditions] would be appalling to any of us," Portman added. "And it's 99-point-something percent. It's almost all meat is produced this way and dairy and eggs." The factory farms are not what an average person might envision of a farm, Portman said: "We think grass, and a barn, and a farmer." "This is mass-produced animals in very, very tight conditions. Millions together and not being able to roam." "Eating Animals" is in select theaters Friday #NINFONETWORK #FOODNINFO #FOODNETWORK #FOODANDWINE #TASTY #NYC #LAEATS #EATER #TRUECOOKS #LONDON #DAILYMAIL #HOLLYWOOD #OMAGAZINE #uglydelicious #bonappetit #FOXNEWS

Happy National Pink Day! 💓 If you don’t know, I’m a community activist on a mission with the American Cancer Society & @makingstridesinlandempire to bring awareness, hope and funding to all who have been effected by cancer! I’ve been the Head Chair and leading our events committee team now for over 4 years! It’s been a blessing for me and those we have helped give back to.
