Natalie Portman Profile Information

  • Breonna Taylor was a frontline responder, an EMT, in Louisville Kentucky. Today would have been her 27th birthday, but she was killed in her own home by police while she was sleeping. Not only were the police in the wrong house, but the man they were looking for was already in custody. No one has yet been charged or even fired. Please swipe left for a list of actions you can take today to honor her and fight for justice. #sayhername #breonnataylor  Actions steps by @battymamzelle Artwork by @arielsinhaha

  • Today @campaignzero is launching #8cantwait, a list of 8 policies that, when combined, have the power to reduce police violence that results in death by up to 72%. These policies will make our communities safer and can be enacted right now. Visit 8cantwait.org to see where your city stands on these 8 policies and then join me in encouraging mayors take action immediately. Follow @mspackyetti @iamderay to learn more.

  • “Our vision is for a world rooted in the care and love and humanity for every human being. A world that relies on an economy of care versus one with an economy of punishment. An abolitionist believes in freedom.” - @osopepatrisse  Most of our cities dedicate over 50% of their budgets towards the police force. What if instead of punishment, we prioritized care and programs nourishing communities of color? Visit my stories and follow @mvmnt4blklives @osopepatrisse to sign the petition and learn more.

  • Throwing it back to my own college graduation as I offer a huge congratulations to the class of 2020. I want to congratulate you all on your achievement and welcome you into post-college life. I can only imagine this is a daunting and uncertain time to be entering adult-land. And that many of you and your families are struggling, as we all are in very different ways during these most unusual of times. Least among these concerns, but upsetting nonetheless I’m sure, is your inability to have a proper graduation ceremony. Classes before you may have had a more conventional graduation and economy to enter, but you have much more profound spiritual opportunities than we did, because purpose could not be more clearly defined right now. I hope you can find the blessing in being confronted at this auspicious moment in your life, with the most necessary questions humans face: what is actually essential? What do we really cherish at the end of our lives? What is a world without hugging? Without being able to see your friends and family? What is being outdoors like if we have to wear masks all the time? I wish for you that the clarity of the answers to these questions guide you in your path. May you seek a path full of purpose, love, creativity and generosity. We need those qualities now more than ever. We are experiencing the conditions that lead to revolution—and you are the generation that is leading the charge. Thank you, in advance, for all the beautiful things you will do.

  • My heart is so heavy for those who lost their lives these past few weeks — individuals who should be known for their personalities, the way they lived, those who loved them — not grouped together for the brutal and awful way they were murdered. But the killings of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and George Floyd are part of a larger and horrific pattern in this country. I know it’s not enough to be horrified though. I need to learn so much and do so much more as a white American trying to fathom what life is like for people of color in this country. Visit my stories for a list of resources to begin the anti-racist work. We have so much work to do if we truly want this to be a land of liberty and justice for all. Illustrations by @shirien.creates

  • I decided to talk to some people I admire and see if I could learn some new things from them. The first person I’m talking to is my friend @mikesolomonov—chef at Zahav in Philly and author of one of my favorite cookbooks Zahav: A World of Israeli Cooking. Tonight, he taught me how to make pita! It was so delicious and not as scary as I thought it would be. If you try it, let me know how it goes? #nataliestable

  • My first blessing in life was to be born to my mom. She is the most loving, caring, generous, cuddly, funny, smart, talented, creative person I could ever imagine getting to spend my childhood with. And now I’m blessed by my kids who turned me into a mom and make me smile and laugh every single day — and who make me appreciate my mom even more for all the invisible things she did for me that I realize now as I try to live up to her mothering. #mothersday

  • This #cincodemayo I’m joining @activistmonicaramirez to support the #phenomenalworkers who are keeping us fed during the pandemic. While farmworkers are essential, their work conditions make it near impossible for them to social distance and limit the spread of COVID-19. Visit altisimolive.com today at 3 pm ET to show your support for the Farmworkers Pandemic Relief Fund!  In the meantime, here are strawberry mint popsicles— fun snack for kids and converts into a cocktail mixer for grownups. Join me today in celebrating and honoring these #phenomenalworkers 👏  Recipe:  1. Chop 2 cups strawberries 2. Add 3 tbsp brown sugar and juice of one lemon in bowl, stir; add chopped mint 3. Combine into blender; (I just did it on the chop setting so there would be pieces of strawberry, but if you prefer smoother you can purée) 4. Pour into popsicle molds and put in freezer 5. Once frozen, kids can eat as is; adults can put in a glass, pour tequila over and let it serve as both ice and mixer!
