Thank you, especially, to *you*, for reading, sharing, learning, and growing with us. We couldn’t have done it without you. Love, Lenny
Our full statement, and farewell, from Lena, Jenni, and Molly is here. lennyletter.com/story/lena-dun…
And of course, last week, our incredibly talented and hardworking editorial and creative director @mollyelizalde wrote a moving essay on mourning and the healing power of The Long Island Medium. lennyletter.com/story/reality-…
We’ve continuously worked to spotlight the underrepresented voices that are creating in industries that have long refused to listen. Yesterday, we published a first look at Oyinkan Braithwaite’s sharp new satire, My Sister, The Serial Killer. lennyletter.com/story/my-siste…
As we look ahead to November, @meenaharris profiled Congressional candidate @LUnderwood630, who is fighting for affordable health care and taking the matter of representative democracy into her own hands. lennyletter.com/story/in-the-r…
This week, we also published an excerpt from @ProfCAnderson’s new book. With recent reports of vote purging in Georgia and voter ID laws targeting Native American voters, Prof. Anderson’s work is crucial to the fight to protect the right to vote. lennyletter.com/story/one-pers…
And last, @exexteen met with organizers from @FOverground @BLACKandPINKorg and @tgijp to talk about building radical support networks for formerly incarcerated trans people. lennyletter.com/story/building…
Next, @tahairyy visited researchers in Puerto Morelos, Mexico, who are rebuilding our rapidly disappearing coral reefs through in-vitro fertilization. lennyletter.com/story/saving-c…
For our last issue, we explored the theme of (re)birth. First, @surlybassey spent time with Black doulas like @BirthingJustice who are working to transform maternal health outcomes for Black women and parents. lennyletter.com/story/birthing…
Today’s issue of Lenny is our last. This thread is a thank you for what you’ve helped us create — a community of dedicated and fiercely passionate readers, writers, and artists.
“She had the birth she wanted. She was walking and all the neighborhood aunties were calling, ‘You got this, girl! She’s about to come!’” For the final issue of @lennyletter I wrote about the black doulas tackling the black maternal health crisis lennyletter.com/story/birthing…

@gfherald @dickinsonpress @lisamurkowski Proud that my bill to create a Commission on Native Children was signed into law in 2016 & has had all its members fully appointed. Through the Commission we can help address the challenges Native youth face. Read more in @lennyletter from @JuliaRJones. lennyletter.com/story/the-nort…
