Heyyyyyyyy community! Myself and my partner @jlovecalderon want to pause for a moment to acknowledge a total rockstar in our midst. This human right here! @freckledwhileblack is truly an extraordinary artivist who we are LUCKY to have as one of @weinspirejustice Social Impact Advisor and Trainers AND she holds it all down as our Inspire Justice Project Coordinator! BREA! Thank you sooooooooooo much for all your hard work and effort and those late nights handlin' business with us and ensuring our dope ass clients are supported the way they need to be so they can continue to rise as change makers! We love and appreciate you. We see you. We acknowledge you. We honor you. With love, always and in all ways! ❤️ Give her a follow! ⚡️⚡️⚡️
It felt so good to celebrate my good friend @kendrick38 at the launch of @BLDPWR and be in community with phenomenal artivists putting in the work! Thank you @favianna1 for drawing important connections and for showing how climate change is a racial justice issue! You did the damn thing! Big up @Tia.oso and @mrmikedelarocha for all your hard work, vision, and energy! Inspired!
Yesterday was Malcolm X’s birthday. 🙏🏼 # To fight for freedom, we must always be seeking to learn and apply new information about who we are, how we came to be this way and the outside cultural, institutional, and social forces that impacted us. We are all in various levels of sleep, the antidote to which must be an INTENTIONAL learning/unlearning and self-reflection coupled with ACTION. (Image repost from @workingclassteacher )
This has all been truly terrifying, infuriating, and sickening. Hard to find the words to describe my feelings on what is happening and will continue to happen unless we fight like hell (see slides 3 and 4 for places to donate to from @chasinggarza ). Sending my love to all of the women and trans folx whose reproductive rights are under attack and calling in all people who wish to be allies to UP OUR GAME. # GEORGIA SPECIFIC - Sister Song @sistersong_woc - Fair Fight Action, Stacey Abrams’ org @fairfightaction - ARC Southeast @arc_southeast - Feminist Womens Health Center @feministcenter ALABAMA SPECIFIC - Yellowhammer Fund @yellowfund NATIONAL - National network of abortion funds @abortionfunds

"Vanishing New York: How A Great City Lost Its Soul" by Jeremiah Moss ( @mossvanishingnewyork ) # Absolutely loved this book and if you love NYC, I can't recommend this enough. Was having dinner with @moustachemannyc in NYC when we happened upon a bookstore called "Unoppressive Non-Imperialist Bargain Books" which ended up being a fitting place for me to buy this book. # Growing up in Manhattan (in Chelsea), this book truly shifted much of my understanding of how the City has changed since I was a child. Yes, NYC is always changing, as Moss says, but what has taken place more recently has been more rapid and unlike any of the previous changes that NYC has seen due to numerous factors...but especially those in power catering to the extremely wealthy, real estate interests, and to corporations at any costs. # Moss is truly a talented writer and portrays the spirit of the City in a captivating way, mostly through his own stories and the stories of those that he has been in contact with through his work. It is these personal stories that patch together the depiction of the soul of the city in such a gripping and intimate way. A fabric that has been and is continuing to be rapidly torn apart as poor and working class people (and especially People of Color) are continuing to be displaced at alarming rates. This book both rekindled a deep passion for NYC and simultaneously made me angry at what has been and continues to take place. # On a sidenote, I went to preschool in the basement of the McBurney YMCA a few blocks from where I grew up (which has since become a few different gyms). It wasn't until reading this book that I learned that the Village People's YMCA song was based on the YMCA where I went to preschool. So much incredible history to be learned from this book. #VanishingNewYork #JeremiahMoss # My Booklist: bit.ly/mcgreads (link in bio) #mcgreads
Statement from the Coalition to #FreeMasonique @freemasonique "Today, Masonique pled guilty to a reduced charge of involuntary manslaughter. Prosecutor Ron O’Brien bullied this teenager into accepting charges for a murder that Officer Eric Richards committed. This is one of many instances of the racist, classist carceral system pressuring Black people into needlessly accepting punitive measures. By scapegoating her and disappearing her behind bars, Ron O’Brien has allowed another killer cop to evade accountability. We are angry and disappointed in the outcome, but we as a coalition still stand alongside Masonique and will do what we can to advocate for her. This is not over!"
Repost from @mia.mingus - “YES ALL DAY to this definition of boundaries from @prentis.h 🌟🌟🌟 . .

Columbus Police killed 16-year-old Julius Tate Jr. in December and are pinning their murder on his girlfriend Masonique Saunders. This system is so fixed against black youth that when an unarmed teenager is shot dead by police, instead of being accountable they scapegoat a young black woman. Since December, Masonique has sat in a jail cell languishing as they attempt to try her as an adult (Masonique 'celebrated' her 17th birthday behind bars). We know that these charges are unjust, and demand that they #DropTheCharges and #FreeMasonique. You can support by doing any or all of the following: -Write a statement or post a video in support of Masonique, tagging @freemasonique. -Donate to Masonique’s legal fees at https://www.gofundme.com/free-masonique-legal-fees and get involved with the National Week of Action at freemasonique.home.blog -Call Prosecutor Ron O’Brien at (614) 525-3555 and demand that Masonique be released and that her charges be dropped.
