Good morning!

Brandi Carlile and Jennifer Hopper‘s The Angel Band Project will perform together at an upcoming Seattle Storm game. Jennifer is the survivor of a horrific violent tragedy where she lost her partner, Teresa, and the event inspired Brandi’s Fight the Fear Campaign, which promotes self-defense for all women.From the Seattle Lesbian:

“Jennifer Hopper is an inspiration to me and so many others because she had the courage to turn a tragic event into a positive message for women and girls,” said Carlile. “Too often, women and girls don’t stand up for themselves in the face of dangerous situations because they have been raised to be demure and accommodating. The time to be quiet is over, that belongs in your parents’ and grandparents’ generation. Please join us and the Seattle Storm team to RAISE YOUR VOICE!”

The Mary Sue’s Sam Maggs chatted with the cast of Carmilla.
