A friend wrote me describing the feeling of devastation and helplessness as we fall back into the same arguments, the same anger, the same thoughts and prayers, the same, the same. Then she challenged me: what are five things individuals can do to make change on gun violence?/1
Here’s what I said:
1. Support companies who are taking steps to make communities safer and end gun violence. @Dicks, @llbean and @Toms are great examples. And don’t forget the @wnba wears orange. Plenty of others too, find them out. /2
2. Support local organizations working in communities to make change. Two of my favorites are @NCST_newark, a violence interruptor program, and @guitarsoverguns, a youth program that provides music education and mentorship in communities heavily impacted by gun violence. /3

🧵CONTENT WARNING: Medical neglect, violence, pregnancy, fetal death, death.

It’s impossible to express the frustration, sadness and rage we shared with our community when we read Kelly Masten’s story last week.
star-telegram.com/news/local/for…
On Apr 11, 38 yr old Kelly Masten who suffers from a rare form of epilepsy, was arrested during a mental health crisis call. Kelly's almost daily seizures from the age of 2, have left her with the capacity of a 5-6 yr. old. Unable to read, write or take care of most daily needs.
Despite repeated requests from family to have her transported to JPS hospital, she was arrested and confined in a single cell in Tarrant co jail.

What followed is a horrific example of how carceral systems are designed to fail human beings, especially the most vulnerable ones.

1st day at my 1st duty station. 1st guy I meet is an LDO ensign. Shakes my hand & says, “You gonna be like our last female intel officer & sleep w/every squadron CO who comes through?” 1/
Met my 1st P-3c aircrew a little later. The plane commander introduces himself & says, “Are you going to be like our intel officer? She only sleeps with O4s and higher.” 2/
Hit on by 3 married colleagues, the AFOSI officer who did my CI polygraph, & too many deployed aviators to remember at that assignment. 3/

@neiltyson 1. The medical errors number is wrong. It’s based on grossly extrapolated data with no autopsy confirmation and assumes that if someone died after surgery it was due to the surgery and not to the underlying disease the surgery was for. 2. Mass shootings are homicides.
@neiltyson 3. @neiltyson do you really want to use comparative data to effectively minimize the human reaction to the horror of a mass fatality incident? All of these deaths are preventable and we should be working on all of them. #NotOneMore
@neiltyson 4. We have public health measures & evidence based legislation in place to address flu deaths, medical errors, MVAs, even suicide. Why don’t we have it in place to address gun violence? @ResearchAffirm #ThisIsOurLane

Graham was once one of Trump’s sharpest critics (“I think he’s a kook,” in 2016), and is now one of his staunchest supporters, whether it comes to supporting his Supreme Court pick, or his golf game (“Anyone who says he’s not a great golfer, that’s fake news,” he said).(WaPo)
Sen. Lindsey Graham advises President Donald Trump to “stick to his guns” in the fight over funding for a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border and warned that giving in to Democrats' demands could be "the end of his presidency." (USAToday)

More than 1,200 people have lost their lives to gun violence in the 12 months since the #Parkland shooting. Our nation’s youth have risen loudly to demand action, and we remain resolute in doing our part to keep our communities and children safe from the scourge of #gunviolence. Speaking at Alliance for Gu...
WA has acted boldly before — expanding background checks, banning bump stocks, boosting suicide prevention strategies, implementing protective orders to keep firearms out of the hands of people in crisis and more. But our work is far from done.
We stand united today out of love for our families and children, and in dedication to pursuing commonsense #gunsafety measures that we know save lives. I’m proud to join our state's youth, @AGOWA, @WaGunResponsib and the people of WA to say #NotOneMore and #EnoughIsEnough.

Within weeks of the Orlando nightclub shooting, Sen. Tom Udall (D-NM) participated in a sit-in at the House to demand votes on gun control legislation, saying, "We owe it to the LGBT community & all families harmed by gun violence to keep terror suspects from obtaining guns."
Since he was first elected to Congress in 1998, Sen. Udall has taken a leadership role on a wide array of environmental issues, receiving a lifetime score of 96% from the League of Conservation Voters.
#DemSenate2020 #DemsWork4USA #DemFuture #ForThePeople
Sen. Udall was one of the original co-sponsors of the Arctic Wilderness Bill, and more recently has worked closely with the Navajo and Pueblo nations in New Mexico to oppose new leasing, drilling and fracking near Chaco Canyon National Park. #DemSenate2020 #DemFuture

BREAKING

Earlier today, 'Mapache', an 18 year old from San Antonio, Texas. Mapache was picked up at the @abolishICEsatx vigil. He's currently detained at the Webb Detention Center.

Mapache is our client. His DACA renewal was pending.

#FreeMapache
#NotOneMore
Mapache is now locked up. He has a hearing date in October. We don’t know what ICE will do with him until then.

Mapache was first transferred to the Pearsall detention center, then to the Webb Detention Center in Laredo, Texas, where he is now.

#FreeMapache
Mapache recently completed high school. He is a committed community organizer and budding filmmaker.

This is an act of terror by the US government to keep the public from protesting the unethical and immoral treatment of immigrants by ICE and DHS.

Release: Because for-profit or military imprisonment is unnecessary and illegal
Represent: Because represented children and families have a 96% court appearance rate and are 400% more likely to win their claims for relief
Reunify: Because we can do it faster than the government
@RAICESTEXAS @MigrantFreedom @TXCivilRights @ACLU @ProPublica @ThinkLawLab @abogadatejana @AlOtroLado_Org @aldea_pjc @immcouncil Are ready, willing, and able to put these families back together much more efficiently than the government ever could.

Feels like we're living in an alternative reality. Or it's opposite day. A few things:
1) The immigration bill Trump would veto is not a "compromise" - it's a deadly attack on immigrants and asylum seekers that would, among other things …
...give DHS the power to jail asylum seeking families indefinitely; promote racial profiling by giving DHS sweeping authority to arrest and deport young people for being brown; and further dismantle our asylum system by setting impossibly heightened evidentiary standards. 2.
2) The administration can and must end family separation now. No law or policy requires it. The bill Rep. Ryan is supporting does NOT end family separation, it just gives the government more power to jail the families it doesn’t separate. 3.

I’m glad to see you all at this march, but I wish the context of it didn’t exist. I’m inspired by the young folks here & around the country who’ve mobilized and organized around the issue of gun violence prevention

Today is really about listening to kids, but here’s my message to high school students walking out today (sorry in advance for too-long thread): I have two kids, in second and fifth grade over at Hillsborough Elementary. Every day when they leave for school I make sure to 1/

In face of intense NRA lobbying & continued obstruction by Congress, @POTUS right to take executive action to curb gun violence. #NotOneMore
Expanding background checks for gun purchases, expanding mental health access & increasing # of ATF agents investigating gun law violations.
Overwhelming majority in US support universal background checks, including 74% of NRA members. And yet, Congress repeatedly refused to act.

This morning, I was briefed by the FBI on the investigation into the mass shooting in #SanBernardino.
FBI is conducting investigation into suspects to determine motive & whether there is any connection to terror or evidence of radicalization.
At this point it is too early to rule anything in or out – it may have been workplace violence or it may have been more.
