MISSION 003: DARK TO LIGHT

Death Valley, California » Beacon, New York

Tara Simmons is a native Beaconite on a mission to spread love through awareness and education of Human Rights! 

Since 2007, Tara has been teaching math with White Plains School District. In addition to being an ambassador for Human Rights, Tara is an active member of I Am Beacon, and Beacon Endurance. Tara has led empowerment activities such as workout sessions and book clubs for the Beacon community. Through this work she had helped others to feel strong and cultivate their ability to love and be loved. In March 2020, Tara launched her initiative, Flipit4Life.

The mission of FL!P IT 4 LIFE is to increase love and to conquer fear. Through her experience, Tara works to bring her community along the journey. She wants others know that they are more than the labels we may be wrapped in by ourselves, others or society.

 

To launch this work, Tara ran 100 miles on October 3-4, 2020 from Albany, NY back to her hometown of Beacon, NY while spreading her message of human rights awareness, love and acceptance. She plans to continue taking on distance challenges by foot and on bikes each year until she is able to go from Death Valley, California to Beacon, New York.

 

As a new member of the Dutchess County Commission on Human Rights, Tara plans to continue to educate, empower and encourage ALL about the importance of receiving and giving respect to ourselves and each other, in each moment, because we ALL deserve it.
