I am pleased to see you liking my tweet @ejthementor for that much, I thank you, however, as I hope you will fully agree that we need actions to answers as to why @MentalAbuseUK can still continue by the @InquiryCSA with many who have been on
#TwitterSpaces for at least the past decade on @TwitterRetweets with their opinions, suggestions, veiws, offers of comfort support and the set up of #IICSA by @NSPCC @PeterWanless and @theresa_may over 7 and a half years ago chaired by ex @swforchange #AlexisJay
who in fact has caused more harm and damage to the #VictimsOfDoubleJeopardy who suffered throughout their whole lives without being heard to be denied the same compensation that any @CSAQT who have been @voicing_csa for as long as the @productssystem aka #LovellTwins👭🏾 have been

On Friday June 4, 2021 I attended a meeting with Secretary of State Blinken. The purpose of the meeting was to talk all things #Palestine

I attended as an individual. I am not affiliated with any PAC or organization. I obviously do not speak for or represent the #Palestinian people. There’s like 7 million of us at least, and like 2 million of #Palestinians stuffed in #Gaza alone.
To the #Palestinian Americans who boycotted this meeting after the #Biden Administration handed Israel $735 million dollars in weaponry following the merciless attacks on Palestinians locked in Gaza.

Today is a great & historic day for America. With the #EqualityAct passing in the House, we're closer to living up to our professed values as a nation.

Speaker Pelosi said it all here: "This is not about tolerance. This is about respect. This is about taking pride." #LGBTQ🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍⚧️
.@RepCicilline an author of the #EqualityAct, has been fighting for #EqualityForAll for decades in recognition of his rights and the rights of others in the #LGBTQ community.

He protected our Constitution as a House Manager; it must be made clear that it protects him as well.
In debates in the House before voting, Republicans appealed to ugly, hateful attacks on the #LGBTQ community — with particular venom reserved for transgender people.

@SenSchumer didn't mince his words in denouncing their hateful GOP agenda nor in describing his personal stake.

This #Thread the most important one I have ever written. #BidenHarris2020Landslide could be the difference between life and death for me and countless other #disabled people. #CripTheVote #ByeDon2020
Can anyone guarantee if heaven forbid #Tre45on wins I won't be thrown in a camp cause I'm #Muslim #Jersey girl? It breaks my heart that this meeting is being framed as negative or shady. #DisabilityTwitter #GH fam you know me I can't keep a secret and I was never asked to.
I am proud to work with #BidenHarris to #BeatTrump like a drum and I have no doubt they are equally proud to work with me a multiple minority. @JoeBiden & @KamalaHarris's campaign took the time to sit down with me and my community. #CripTheVote #ByeDon2020

@DisabledinCa @fordnation Being disabled in Canada means first being told you are overweight, and you should be happy your illness is making you thinner, while you are throwing up everything. The first doctor you see asks you, “How much pot would you say you smoke a day?”
when you do not drink, smoke, or do anything of that sort.
Being disabled in Canada means spending 3 years having a doctor telling you to "wait and see" while your loved ones watch you wither away physically and emotionally. Over time you see 3 psychiatrists for
a possible eating disorder but don't have a Gastric Emptying Study done until 2-3 years to see if your stomach is working. You then retake that test exactly a year later, because your last results were deemed inconclusive, but no one thought a second look would help at the time.

#Happy4thofJuly . On this day, let us dedicate ourselves to working towards a more perfect union. Each generation must work to fulfill our nation's promise of #EqualityForAll, just governance, and a commitment to the #RuleOfLaw. Thanks to all who are doing this work.
The #July4th spirit--and spirit of '76--is captured by Lincoln at Gettysburg: “this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” Amen.
In Colorado, we are the Centennial State, giving us a special connection to our nation's ideals and founding. Two historical examples are Governor Ralph Carr resisting Japanese internment and our early establishment of a civil rights commission.

"Por una vez en la historia, España ha llegado puntual a la cita con la igualdad"

Pedro Zerolo #MatrimonioIgualitario #LoveIsLove #AmorEsAmor #Pride #PRIDE2020 #PrideMonth #Orgullo #Orgullo2020 #EqualityForAll #Igualdad 🏳️‍🌈
Quince años después de este gran logro de España por la igualdad, en Chile se promulgó el AUC recién en 2015; pero aún falta avanzar al Matrimonio Igualitario, y otros temas de interés para el colectivo LGBTTTIQ+ 🏳️‍🌈, que ayuden a equiparar con el resto de la ciudadanía
El pasado 8 de junio, un tribunal de familia dictó una sentencia que fija un favorable precedente por los derechos filiativos de NNA de matrimonios homoparentales; aunque 3 días antes el TC, rechazó recurso sobre Matrimonio Igualitario

Remember $5B startup that laid off mostly white guys with $$$ but didn’t give women/POC that option and increased their workload/cut pay instead? Meet @toasttab board: @steve_fredette @kentbennett @davelyuan @LeadEdgeCapital @BessemerVP @TCVTech + folks not on Twitter. Read on!
In February, @toasttab raised $400m, bringing their total to $902m. Two months later, they laid off 50% of their workforce. pos.toasttab.com/covid-19-impac…
During the layoff, @toasttab laid off ~81 FIEs (field implementation engineers; data from layoffs.fyi), retaining ~41. Of those laid off, ~66% were white males versus ~35% of retained (using public @linkedin photos/name, with a double-blind rating agreement of 100%).

On this historic day for #LGBTQ rights in our country, I’m going to #ShareTheMic with my brother Gerry:

The #SCOTUS ruling that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 provides workplace protections to #LGBTQ folks is a monumental move toward #EqualityForAll in America. (1/4)
#ShareTheMic

Personally, as a gay man working in education, I’m reminded of the work done by Harvey Milk and his allies in defeating the Briggs Initiative that would have banned lesbian and gay teachers and their open supporters from teaching in public schools. (2/4)
#ShareTheMic

With this ruling, #SCOTUS reaffirms what the majority of California voters passed 42 years ago. This is a huge victory for #LGBTQ folks in all professions. (3/4)

So, wonder what it's all about at the Supreme Court and #GayRights today?
Here's a primer & photos (pulled off interweb w/ credit) of some of the thousands of activists who turned up in front of #SCOTUS to fight for #EqualityForAll

My name is Chrysty and this is Sherlock, my medical alert dog. We want to share with you why we choose @TulsiGabbard for president. #WhyTulsi

I belong to a military family and I have waited at home while my loved ones have been deployed to the Middle East too many times!(1/10)
Do you realize that later this year people who were born after 9/11 will put their lives on the line in a war that started before they were born? Tulsi pledges to put an end to regime change wars! She is a combat veteran herself and proud of her service since 9/11.She knows(2/10)

Her commitment to prosperity through peace gives us a direction to move toward. One of the things I love the most about Tulsi is her integrity and hope! She is running a positive campaign toward a better future for us and for our children. My nieces and (3/10)

#Alabama, #Ohio, #Missouri, and #Georgia have begun the @GOP's orchestrated attack on women with restrictive abortion laws.

Make NO mistake this is NOT about protecting life. It is a hostile GOP and their #WarOnWomen restricting #WomensReproductiveRights and #WomensHealth.
Highly restrictive abortion laws are not associated with lower abortion rates! Whether legal or prohibited the number of abortions taking place remains relatively unchanged. Highly restrictive abortion laws simply prevent SAFE abortions.
In countries where abortion is completely banned or permitted only to save the woman’s life or preserve her physical health, only 1 in 4 abortions were safe; whereas, in countries where abortion is legal on broader grounds, nearly 9 in 10 abortions were done safely.

The central tenet of the pro-life movement is that an unborn child — from conception — should have the same protections as a person who has already been born; no more, no less. That is why #EqualityForAll is inconsistent with the notion that #AbortionIsAWomansRight /1
If so, no unborn child should be killed absent a legal justification that would otherwise apply to the killings of persons already born. /2
For example, I would be legally justified to kill another person who is an immediate threat to my life. That would be self-defense. Similarly, a mother who has an ectopic pregnancy, for example, would be justified in aborting her pregnancy since her very life depends upon it. /3

TRANS AWARENESS MONTH

Today’s Thread Topic: Transgender voters

Strict voter ID laws disenfranchise transgender voters, as 68% of trans people do not have identification that match their gender identity and/or name.

#LGBTVoices
#TransAwarenessMonth
2/ There are 1.4 million trans people of voting age. All voters should have an equal opportunity to participate in the political process.
Voter i.d. laws & uniformed workers can cause obstacles for trans voters

3/ Once trans voters know their state's I.d. requirements they may still experience problems at the polls.
A few helpful resources are these Check off items on the #VotingWhileTrans guides for voters & poll workers/election officials

.@RepHardy This generation has no room for bigotry, discrimination, or the degradation of human rights. As an openly Gay Black Woman who served in the military, reaching the ranks of Lieutenant Colonel, I am calling you out.#BlueWave2018 #LGBTQRights #EqualityForAll #Enough (1/3)
This is 2018 and we will not retreat from the progress we've made toward FULL EQUALITY! #BlueWave2018 #LGBTQRights #EqualityForAll #RideTheWave (2/3)
As a pastor, I joined social justice advocates who fought to end DADT and we WON! As a member of Congress, I'll keep fighting the homophobic demagoguery seeking to turn back the clock on Human Rights and WE WILL WIN!#BlueWave2018 #LGBTQRights #EqualityForAll #RideTheWave (3/3)
