Lemonade We try not to get political here in the Pavilion. But this movement is so inspiring, we can’t let it go unnoticed.#StandForKids, started by Elana Berkowitz, Josh Hendler, and Avani Agarwal has become a national call to action for families all across the country to show solidarity in the belief that families belong together. Here's what Berkowitz had to say about starting the movement, almost on a whim. "The idea originated with my next-door neighbor's young daughter and her plan for her own lemonade stand. It was such a perfect idea. I worked in the Obama Administration, I've volunteered on political campaigns since I was little, but now, as a new parent, it can be hard to find ways to take action in critical political moments like this in a way where the whole family can participate. Also, frankly, I was sick of people bemoaning the situation on social media while standing on the edge of the pool, and not jumping in to act in a meaningful way. Those of us with enormous privilege have a moral imperative to use it in service every day. " Read about it on Kitchn,here. ViaKitchn
