I'm the DC Chapter co-Lead of @MomsDemand. It's really a lot of work. There's a lot to do in this city and our advocacy is 2-fold. I'm gonna tell you about it. Because there are so many layers. And the past week has almost taken me out of this role.
3 years ago, my then-4 yo was in preK4 at the public school 2 blocks away. I was working full time and shootings were regular national AND local news stories. I was lamenting to a client that as Black Americans, my kids are 10x more likely to die by gun than their white peers.
At that time I didn't think my son was participating in active shooter drills. She told me he was; and she gave me the right words to ask him about it so I could know for sure. That day when picked him up I asked and cried as he gave me the answer I didn't know to assume.

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

Istilah “Tempat Jin Buang Anak“ harus dimaknai sebagai ajakan dan semangat untuk berbenah dan memperbaiki. dimasa lalu Ancol juga sama, orang Jakarta juga menyebutnya Tempat Jin Buang Anak dan sekarang justru menjadi pusat hiburan warga Jakarta #hening @asboedionoid
Jika sekarang muncul kembali Istilah “ Tempat Jin Buang Anak “ jangan kemudian marah, istilah itu bukan berarti sebuah realita melainkan hanya fantasi manusia yang belum mengenal tempat yang dimaksudkan sebagai Tempat Jin Buang Anak ~ Angker-Sepi Penghuni #hening @asboedionoid
Istilah Tempat Jin Biang Anak akan hikang dengan sendirinya ketika wilayah yang dimaksudkan itu sarat dengan Pembangunan, dipenuhi kehidupan nyata masyarakat, dipenuhi Infrastruktur dan pemukiman penduduk ( kita harus realistis ) jangan cupet pikirannya #hening @asboedionoid

@Timcast Tim, please.

The Founding Fathers did the *discourse and convincing* anonymously. They built power anonymously. Only once the power base was built, they came out swinging.

The founding fathers were smart - and anonymous. #BeSmart.

I wrote this 2 years ago. The reason I’ve been in isolation for over a week is b/c I responded on 9/11 and got sick. I was 21 and it was my job. That day and the days that followed were hard to get through. I’m not sure why young people are finding it so hard to simply stay home.
Going out at this point is only putting more people at risk. First responders, medical workers, sanitation, and other necessary workers are working around the clock. We should be trying to limit their exposure as well. #besmart #COVID19
Context: Tommy was a ferry boat captain on 9/11. Instead of docking he kept making return trips to lower Manhattan and is responsible for evacuating thousands. He served in the @USCG as well as the @FDNY. In Nov 2017 he ran the NYC marathon. Just 5 months later he died.

Need some tips on #remotework due to #COVID19?

👨‍💻 + 🏡 = 🤷‍♂️

Well, we've got a few...🙂…
Here’s the gist:

👉 Individuals: try to create a routine that makes you feel productive, included, and motivated.

👉 Organizations: actively listen to and check in with staff to ensure everyone feels supported and included.

And, as the @WHO says, #besafe #besmart #bekind!

"What we've seen so far with respect to bots and the distortion of information is just the tip of the iceberg. It is the greatest threat of recent years, and it threatens the basic values that we share—democracy and the world order created since World War Two,"

@RealJohnDough @stellitecash @electroneum I see a lot of junk talking from different communities instead of learning what the coin is about. I will do some research on Stellite. I hold ETN and at the moment ETN is definitely one of the top coins in terms of Amount of Users and use case🤑
@RealJohnDough @stellitecash @electroneum If you don't know about ETN just take a little time and research what's going on. The have a patent pending for Instant Crypto Payments and Subscription Crypto Payments. Deals have been made and more to come. Only Crypto with KYC and AML‼️
@RealJohnDough @stellitecash @electroneum I actually seen one comment that said you will burn your phone up trying to mine with ETN lmao🚀 Please make sure you do research you may find out Electroneum is way better than the coin you are currently holding‼️
