All are WORTHY 👩🏽‍🎓👨🏽‍🎓
A big shout out to all the kids who didn’t win an award, make honor roll, and barely made it through the school year. A big hug to the moms, dads, grandparents, caregivers, and foster parents that stuck by them as they maneuvered the school year.
To the kids that didn’t get invited to the prom, didn’t get a scholarship to college, and perhaps have to go straight to work out of high are still worthy of a pat on the back and a post with people talking about how amazing you are.
Some kids have to work twice as hard as other students just to get a C. Their achievements deserve recognition.

Don’t forget those kids.

Kindness, creativity, and generosity....those attributes sadly don’t get the accolades they deserve.

1. Press Statement: #WESEEYOU to appear in Court on Friday, 2 October 2020
30 September 2020
We are a group of seven queer activists and artists who have been occupying a mansion in Camps Bay for just under two weeks. #takeupspace #webelonghere #holdyourground
2. We are here in protest of many issues, that are layered, complex & nuanced - as are our identities as queer people, and as those who have historically been divided by race and class. we have connected across struggle because we are in solidarity
3. we believe in justice, dignity, collective healing and our historical right to be allowed safe space in beautiful areas that we have historically been displaced from, areas we still would never be able to live in. #takeupspace #webelonghere #holdyourground

1. @TriangleOrg and @GenderDynamix put out a joint statement on facebook in solidarity with our occupation. #weseeyou #takeupspace #webelonghere #holdyourground
2 As organisations, we deal with the real consequences of homelessness, formal unemployment and housing insecurity which affects everyone in SA and especially affects people who are queer, trans womxn who are sex workers, and LGBTQI+ people who are from other countries in Africa.
3. We support actions that raise awareness about...income inequality of the world’s most unequal countries... This is...why we have supported movements that..address inequality: @ReclaimCT, @NdifunaUkwazi & (those who) advocate for the rights of sex workers and migrants

Thank you for all the messages of support. The rental company that manages the mansion we are occupying has threatened to involve the police despite the fact that evictions are currently still illegal.
We must reject this perception of occupiers that invites violence on people simply in need of homes.
If you connect with our cause and would like to show your solidarity to us and others like us, please mention us in your stories, @ the page, share our posts to ensure that we and other occupiers in this city are kept safe.

@Austin_Police arrested 20-y/o Julian Roldan Gawel 4 taking down d #UnitedStates/#Texas flags Fri night Juneteenth in front of #Austin Police Dept HQ where a #protest was happening. @TheJusticeDept @DHSgov @FBI #WeSeeYou @tedcruz @chiproytx @DNI_Ratcliffe
The protesters gathered outside APD HQ chanting hateful slogans, carrying hateful signs, calling OUR police officers derogatory names, & attempted to enter the building. Once they failed, they turned to the American & Texas flags flying from city-owned poles nearby.
Rioters lowered both flags, put them in a pile on the pavement & after several failed attempts, set them on fire. Julian was CHARGED WITH THEFT, EVADING ARREST, & RESISTING ARREST. Julian CROSSED STATE LINES in order to incite a riot, his case was referred to the @FBI.

We celebrate #May24 by paying tribute to every #Eritrean family, and by renewing our promise to restore and reunite Eritrean families - to #heal Eritrea. ImageImageImageImage
We pay tribute:

To the family of those who paid the ultimate on the days leading to and on the eve of #May24. They could smell it, see it and sense it, yet there was a price to be paid - one more time and your precious one came forward…

The past couple days have been beyond our wildest dreams, but today was a fairytale. I’m not sure I can fully capture what we just experienced, but I’ll do my best.

…ready for it?

This afternoon, we received two packages in the daily mail. One a bundle of letters from postal workers around the country.

The other box was oversized and covered in “Please Handle With Care. Thank You.” stickers.
I’ll be honest. We didn’t think too much about it. There have been so many letters this week that the most unlikely scenario didn’t even occur to us.

I cut the box open while we sorted through some other mail. And, then...

Emerson, my 11 year old, is on a bit of a wild ride with the @USPS and our local mail carrier, Doug.

And, I think there’s a deeper message to it all.

First, the backstory...
Em has a serious letter writing habit. She maintains active correspondence with over a dozen of her favorite people. And, if you’ve been the lucky recipient of one of Em’s hand decorated letters and envelopes, then you have a pretty good idea of the joy they bring.
A letter from Emerson is likely to include some art, a joke or two, a mention of her younger brother, confessions of her love for Taylor Swift and enough questions to guarantee a response.

1. FACT CHECK: Dreamers DID NOT break the law. They were brought here BY THEIR PARENTS as children. They are not responsible and should not be penalized for someone else’s wrong. #basicethics #nosoullesspolitics #TruthMatters #DreamActNow
2. FACT CHECK: Dreamers DO PAY TAXES. Under DACA Dreamers are able to work, pay taxes, Social Security, build businesses, pay business registration fees, etc. #TrumpShutDown pitting Dreamers against “tax paying Americans” is ignorant as hell. #nosoullesspolitics #DreamActNow
3. FACT CHECK: Who is holding whom hostage? #TrumpShutdown is holding America hostage—trying to force us into #humansacrifice ritual: “Choose white children over brown immigrants. Dems said #NO! #ShutItDown #WeSeeYou #DreamActNow #nosoullesspolitics .@chuckschumer @NancyPelosi

Wat #BoefBoycot toont is dat seksisme in NL pas massaal serieus genomen wordt als het racisme + islamofobie dient. #MeToo werd van alle kanten bekritiseerd en nu springt het land op de bres voor vrouwen? We zijn niet van gisteren: dit is niet voor vrouwen, dit is tegen moslims.
Seksisme is dagelijks; van politiek tot entertainment. Vrouwen worden constant geridiculiseerd en vernederd door witte mannen. Nu een migrant, die bovendien zonder de gevestigde orde succes heeft gecreëerd, een seksist blijkt staat die orde klaar om hem te verscheuren. #weseeyou
De gretigheid waarmee het gebeurt is van een totaal ander kaliber dan tegen witte mannen. Ik ga de lijst niet noemen want dan ben ik de hele dag bezig. Boef is een seksist en een hypocriet. Dat zijn die witte mannen ook. Maar ik zie geen boycots. NL heeft een racismeprobleem.
