Photo Friday: The Inextricable Linkage between Health and Sustainability, Washington, DC USA

Health and sustainability are inextricably linked. Sick humans on a healthy planet are not more sustainable than healthy humans on a sick planet. I applaud WeWork’s (@WeWork) commitment to the environment. Climate Change is a threat to human health. At the same time that meat is not being catered for corporate events, there are copious …

Photo Friday: It's Not What You Preach, It's What You Tolerate

This week’s photograph was taken at Washington, DC’s Dupont Circle, on the occasion of the 2 year anniversary of the murder of 49 people at the Orlando Pulse nightclub.

In addition to being the nation’s capital, Washington, DC also has the most visible and numerous (by proportion) LGBTQ communities in the United States. It shows.
