A Is For About Us: Martha Plimpton

[Video Link] I just finished producing a short video for A Is For featuring Martha Plimpton. It's essentially a quick overview of A Is For and a public invitation to be part of our new awareness-raising campaign. We're asking people to submit a video telling what their A means to them. It will be an ongoing video campaign featuring people's video submissions intercut with some prominent A Is For supporters (so far we have Jane Lynch, Sarah Silverman, Amy Poehler, and Tom Morello). The goal is to provide a unifying symbol for the movement and a loud platform for their voices.


  1. I love this if only because that’s how I write my capital As (well, at least sometimes – the site seems to be playing it fast and loose with the horizontal mirroring of its symbol). Horizontal lines are for squares.

    Might be nice to mention this, well, anywhere, for people who don’t/can’t watch videos: it’s a campaign against all the legislative business as of late to take rights away from women.

  2. Viewing from China I couldn’t see the video and the blurb didn’t mention actually for A Is For does or is. Just thought you guys might add that in :)

  3. Martha Plimpton was my first legit crush, beginning with seeing “The Goonies”. Seeing her supporting such a cool project gives me the childhood warm and fuzzies all over again. 

  4. There should be a Goonies sequel, starring the entirety of the original cast, or whichever of those 80s child stars survived their various drug addictions and whatnot.

    Actually come to think of it, Sean Astin, Josh Brolin, Martha Plimpton et al. would make a pretty strong cast. How weird is that?

  5. It would be nice if the article gave some hint as to what it’s actually about – it’s pretty opaque if you don’t already know what it is.
