My @writingproject's Social Justice study group is underway. We are reading @IjeomaOluo's 'So You Want to Talk About Race' (highly recommend).

Today was our third meeting, and it's wonderful to have a group of colleagues invested in doing this study together. 1/
I left w/gratitude for this space. BUT lately this gratitude has been accompanied by deep disappointment that this work isn't a priority for all Ts.

Now I know that there are probably many Ts who are also upset at the current racist, xenophobic, homophobic hatred in society. 2/
But just being upset doesn't. actually. change. anything. We have to DO something.

And I know there are probably Ts who are doing the work inside their classrooms but may not be actively sharing this on social media and otherwise. 3/

Robin D’Angelo is here! “Racism is a system, not an event.” - J. Kehaulani Kauanui #CC_AboutRace #CC_Summit2018
Anti-blackness cuts across all racial groups.

Anti-blackness is state-sanctioned organized crime. #CC_AboutRace #CC_AboutRace
By virtue of living in the US, we are breathing the air of a racist society.

Move the question from IF I’m racist to HOW I’m racist? What is my socialization? #CC_AboutRace #CC_AboutRace

One year ago today, a wave of constituent pressure crashed in the Senate well -- saving health care for 23 million Americans and denying Trump a top legislative priority. 1/
We didn't build that wave overnight. It started little by little, when people like you showed up at town halls around the country to hold Republicans accountable for trying to repeal the ACA. nymag.com/daily/intellig… 2/
Republicans got scared off. They even pulled their first repeal vote in the House. But they didn’t quit -- and neither did we. nytimes.com/2017/03/24/us/… 3/

THREAD: Are you excited about @Ocasio2018's overwhelming victory tonight?

Good. You should be.

Now here's what you do next.

⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️
The first thing I need you to understand is that @Ocasio2018 didn't win because of a viral campaign ad (though it was a pretty kickass ad). She won because a tiny band of fiercely dedicated people BELIEVED she could win.

That's your first task: #Believe
.@Ocasio2018 also didn't crush Crowley because the establishment media suddenly decided to pay attention 3 weeks ago.

Team Ocasio, along with @BrandNew535 & @justicedems who jointly launched her campaign, have worked around the clock to make this, and other victories possible.
