#FinanciallyFit: Investing in Mutual Funds

By Alexis Cheney – @akcheney

Two weeks ago, just the word “investing” caused me anxiety. Although friends and family told me time and again that placing my paychecks in a savings account barely surmounts shoving it under my mattress, the thought of investing my savings overwhelmed me. How – exactly – do I invest? What – exactly – should I invest in? How much of my savings should I invest?

Dress to Impress: Taking Pride In Queer Fashion

Mandy Dean – Washington, D.C.

Becka Wall – @beckawall

President Trump recently signed a bill allowing states to withhold Title X funding, which goes toward family planning clinics, from any clinic that provides abortion – particularly Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest reproductive health care provider.
