I’m not OK.

I invested a lot in @KamalaHarris cuz I believe in her. Supporting her has been extremely difficult as I’m sure running this race has been difficult. This primary has caused me to view this country, this party, some family, some friends, differently. /1
I’ve been ridiculed, slandered, abused, unfollowed, harassed, targeted, reported, blocked, mocked, etc for riding “too hard” for Kamala Harris. If you’ve ever wondered why I take it personally, the answer is simple:

What they will do to her, they will do to me or my daughters /2
I’ve always made clear, this isn’t about horse race politics for me, it’s about how far ppl are willing to go to harm and humiliate and use black women, who have ALWAYS been so disposable in this country. So many have been exposed by this race and it’s not just white folks /3

To be clear #KamalaHarris started off as a prosecutor specializing in sexual assault cases and has for 3 decades been a staunch advocate for survivors. She pledged to end the nationwide rape kit backlog as POTUS as she did as AG. This op-ed made no mention of that. #TimesUp2020
"Sexual violence is a national problem that deserves a national response"<-- This is precisely what #KamalaHarris proposed months before the article was written with her national response to the rape kit backlog. #TimesUp2020 #MeToo
#KamalaHarris also repeatedly drew attention to and showed solidarity (in person and online) with McDonald's workers who are fighting for a workplace free from sexual harrassment. #TimesUp2020 #MeToo #DemDebate #FightFor15 #JusticeIsOnTheBallot

School shootings are always difficult for me.

Always.

When I was a sophomore, just 15 years old, a boy in my grade got expelled for having a hit list.

I was on it.
My ‘crime’ against him? I said no to a date. We’d never spoke before he asked, and never spoke after, and that ‘no’ was going to cost me my life.

The school called to tell my parents about it.

I answered the phone. I never told them.
How could I? I didn’t want them to be afraid that their little girl was going to die for daring to show up and get an education.

I knew they would be afraid, because I was afraid.

I started to beg my parents to move. Let me go to school somewhere else, anywhere else.

#Khive Its time to take to #socialmedia & use our Platforms. The #media is distracting us with the deliberate #erasure of @KamalaHarris & stopping us from promoting her policies. So I wanna start off with her #MedicareForAll plan #ForThePeople #KamalaHarris #JusticeIsOnTheBallot
@KamalaHarris wants to extend school 🏫 hours yo match working day hours so that kids won’t be left at home alone. Here are that facts & why this is important #teachers #singleparents #ForThePeople #KamalaHarris #school #JusticeIsOnTheBallot #education

#KamalaHarris' #FamilyFriendlySchools Act brings to mind Lights On by Akbar Cook. Though his program is Fri nights, #Kamala's proposal provides refuge to kids otherwise left alone from 3-6P. The funding allows educators like Cook to develop programs best suited for their school.
Hey @KamalaHQ have you heard of the amazing @PrincipalAkbar who has been on Ellen and received a huge donation from Oprah for creating his Lights On program in NJ? He is just the kind of educator the #FamilyFriendlySchools Act entrusts with developing after school programs.
I'd love to hear what Congresswoman #JahanaHayes who endorsed #KamalaHarris earlier this year has to say about the #FamilyFriendlySchools Act. As 2016 Teacher of the Year, I'm sure her insights would be really impactful. #JusticeIsOnTheBallot

#FamilyFriendlySchools Act from #KamalaHarris takes the pressure off parents who have less job flexibility than others. Economic #JusticeIsOnTheBallot
Not only would #Kamala's #FamilyFriendlySchools Act save a family like this $600/month on child care; #KamalaHarris' LIFT Act could provide $500/mo tax credit. That is $1,100 MORE money for the household. Economic #JusticeIsOnTheBallot! #Kamala2020 #KHive

My personal LGBTQ + history - bc it’s important folks know how it was & how it’s shaping up to be again if we don’t get out & vote for Dems every single election.

Disowned ✅
Conversion tx ✅
Survivor of hate crimes ✅
Survivor of corrective rape ✅
Victim of relentless intercessory prayer hours casting out my *demons ✅

Went to more funerals during the AIDS crisis caused by Reagan/GOP than you could ever imagine ✅
Took care of HIV
AIDS enveloped friends bc everyone else (even medical professionals) refused ✅
Survivor of hate related trauma ✅
Spat on for having the audacity to be my queer self ✅
Continually told if I’d just conform - ie let my hair grow, feminize myself etc I’d be ok ✅

These are ..

I searched Steyer on Twitter and this story about his campaign stealing from #KamalaHarris is only being talked about by #Kamala/#KHive supporters and a few blue checks. If the situation were reversed there would be wall to wall coverage. This is some straight up bs!

The power of a Black woman! #KamalaHarris lead with conviction I protest of Trump's award & treatment of students. Thanks to #Kamala's principled stand #BenedictCollege & its students will be centered at this forum rather than the org that unjustifiably gave Trump an award.
Only ONE candidate in this race stood up for the students of #BenedictCollege. Only ONE person stood up against the normalization of Trump's deplorable record which includes calling for the execution of the #ExoneratedFive. That person is #KamalaHarris and #JusticeIsOnTheBallot!
#KamalaHarris speaks directly to #BenedictCollege students. Yesterday students were told to stay in their dorms & only SEVEN were allowed to attend the forum. HBCU students will never be forced to take a back seat under #Kamala's watch! #KHive #Kamala2020
