My 2018 Exposes, HowTo, Drilldowns etc. We s/n be afraid to tangle with big-bucks Forms990 (I did Tides & SFVC AND their supporting/related orgs). Usually I include internal links to related topics too.
Just now I am again in housing transition (a.k.a. Homeless) as I was in 2018, but at least not in California. #FiduciaryAbuse directly involved which I have to face & handle, while in this condition. Yes, it’s intimidating, as intended to be. It’s a control tactic.

Why would any private (or public) university’s audited financial statements (consolidated or otherwise) and schedules of federal awards, including George Washington University’s, matter? Why even read them?

Well, for one, universities tend to include law schools… Image
(From a separate link, not with the main one):…

See its T.O.C.: This lacks an opening MD&A (Managmt Discussion & Analysis) but has Letter of Transmittal, the financial statemts (not that long), and — ALWAYS read, esp “Note 1” (above)— the “Notes.” Image
As it shows, there is more than one reporting entity, and interesting facts tend to surface. Like many urban universities, GWU also has involvemt with a hospital and substantial health care operations. I understand this should be — physicians and medical care professionals.. ImageImage

Makes for harrowing reading…👇…
“Parents can end up losing parenting time for trying to point out actual dangers because an evaluator assumes they are lying, he said.”…sounds familiar? #Cafcass
“She also suggested Elizabeth was projecting made-up medical problems onto her children when she sought advice for her daughter’s recurring stomach problems and expert opinions for her son’s special education needs.”
Sounds familiar? #FII

Therapist 🧵: #Narcissistic Fixated Stalking. #Stalking is illegal in almost every country in the world, but that doesn't mean those who are stalked get the help they need. Stalking is on the Increase due to social media, lack of knowledge by law enforcement as to what #illegal
To do with them, their high levels of manipulation & the law not keeping up with current times. Clusters B's are well known for stalking & taking revenge when they don't get what they want from you. Narcissists & psychopaths are even known to kill your pets.
They may contact your employee With outright lies, stalk you both online & offline & accuse you of stalking them. Stalking is something narcissists (and other cluster B's) love to engage in. It gives them power, control & yes, entertainment #dysfunctional

Johnny Depp was #FalselyAccused & vilified in the media. He has had his life & reputation torn apart by his ex-wife, Amber Heard, & less than half of the people who knew something came forward to defend him. We need to change that.

It's time to speak up.

Many people have interacted with, worked with, known and/or dated Amber Heard. This thread is appealing to those who once knew/know her to come forward and speak up. To bring truth to light if they know anything thay could help Johnny get his justice and get Amber to STOP.

Costar and "friend" to Amber Heard throughout the filming of Aquaman, I think this man knows more than he's saying and though follow Johnny Depp in solidarity during the trial is HUGE, it's not enough IF he does, in fact, know something that can help.

THREAD: Unfortunately, a new #lockdown means a sharp, inevitable rise in #domesticviolence suffered by women and children. ⁣

We have pulled together a Safety Planning Handbook for victim-survivors. Please share this where you can, we don’t know who it may help. 💜⁣ Image
THREAD: Having a code word allows you to raise the alarm to family, friends, carers, or support workers without putting yourself in even more danger.

BREAKING: Ok #Noban tweeps, DOS has completed the review of the processes affected by the revocation of the #MuslimBan (PP9645 & 9983). Here is the half-a*s path forward
1/ If your immigrant visa (IV) was refused on or after 20 Jan '20 due #MuslimBan *YOU MAY* seek re-adjudication without resubmitting DS260 or paying any additional fees, provided the underlying visa petitions remain valid. You'll get priority adjudication. AWSOME news!
2/ If you IV was denied on account of #MuslimBan *before* 20 Jam '20 may you can request a reconsideration of the 212f refusal but you
-- must submit new application
-- pay a new application fee.

Absolutely unconscionable!

In March, my friend, Nkiru and I published a 25-page chapter in the Handbook of Interpersonal Violence "Future Directions in Advocacy in Response to Interpersonal Violence" where we talk about policing, social services, and state + interpersonal violence.… Image
We wrote this before widespread calls to #DefundMPD and mainstream engagement w/ concepts of #abolition, but what I think this writing does is set the groundwork for why divestment from the state (including social services and any anti-violence programs that engage with police) +
divestment from the state is a mandate for survivor safety. policing is NOT an inevitability. state violence is not a necessary by-product of keeping survivors safe. we will never end sexual assault if we don't end the carceral state. Image

A thread:

#COVIDー19 predicted impact on #Childprotection post pandemic:

1. Sudden unprecedented rise in disclosures of #CSA #neglect #DV etc.

2. Local Authorities struggle with capacity to react after 10 years of austerity.

3. Global #economy shot so deprivation levels rise
4. Deprivation leads to poverty of opportunity for generations (poorer housing, lower educational standards, higher crime, poorer health etc).

5. Charities jump in to take the strain.

6. Smaller charities unable to meet all demand due to loss of revenue from fundraising.
7. Local Authorities increase the threshold to keep numbers manageable.

8. Only the most extreme cases reach Child in Need or CP status.

9. Those that don’t reach this threshold struggle to gain support.

10. These become then the most vulnerable.

I have had a number of people reach out to me in the past few days w/friends they have in dangerous #domesticviolence situations. #Covid is making many homes far more dangerous. So here is a general thread on what to do if you have a friend in a #DV situation during #Covid 1/
First, courts are STILL OPEN in most jurisdictions for emergency orders of protection. They are closed for non-emergencies. And most courts can grant these 24/7. However most courts are also backlogged right now. If you can, take pictures of your important documents... 2/
Passports, birth certs, kids school & medical records, health & life insurance info, etc. Send those pics to a trusted friend and either erase them from your phone, or P/W protect them. DV hotlines can safety plan with you. If you are having trouble getting out of the house... 3/

How social change happens. A thread: 👇
The town of #Pittsfield, MA got a new DA, #AndreaHarrington. She read my book, #NoVisibleBruises. She made it a roadmap 4 change. Ok. That's the only thing I'll mention about my involvement, b/c what the town did is so much greater.
The @CountyBerkshire DA partnered w/the local #DV agency (Elizabeth Freeman Ctr) & the local @bookstorelenox. The bookstore gave 20% of its profits to the #DV agency. The #DV & #DA subsided books 4 survivors. They made it a community read & had 50 (!) book groups. Then...
@CountyBerkshire @bookstorelenox The #DA implemented 3 changes to protocol: 1. evidence-based prosecution, 2. strangulation training for police, 3. a high risk team (last county in MA to do so @MassGov ). Whoa! Then, she invited me to speak--free & open to the public--& got healthcare workers who attended...3/

Thread #Activism what we do & what inspires it
Did an interview this week about my activism - theatre activism & the #deadwomenwalking march to remember women killed in the uk by known men I wasn’t prepared for the impact the questions had on me
Asked what was my first memory of political awareness/activism I recalled being in a pub as a teenager & the bar maid had hair under her arms We saw it when she reached up for a glass above the bar My friend was disgusted- disgusted!
I couldn’t grasp why female body hair was so abhorrent to another woman & of course I was awakened to all the messages we get - bleach your moustache, shave your legs, wax your ‘down there’ It’s unnatural get rid of it! It’s dirty get rid of it!

We're live RIGHT NOW with #KamalaHarris. Tune in now to watch the Senator answer questions directly from the women of the Supermajority community here:
On breaking barriers: "You don't start on one side and end up on the other. There is breaking involved. When you break things, it can be painful...It will be worth it every single time, but it is not without pain, hard work, and great effort." — @KamalaHarris #theMajorityRules
@KamalaHarris What is @KamalaHarris' superpower?

"One of the greatest powers that each of us has, and it's a matter of whether or not we see it or identify it for what it is, is to lift each other up. Women do that so well." #theMajorityRules

I was shocked to find that @RLSWrites cites a statistic about the # of animal shelters verses the # of #domesticviolence #shelters, in No Visible Bruises. Why didn't editors at @BloomsburyPub catch this as problematic? Thread: why this is problematic:
1/ There is a connection between domestic abuse and animal abuse. Often abusers injure animals as well as their main targets: women. Many women, over many years, did not leave their abusers because there was no where to take their animals.
2/ Now some dv shelters have created shelters for animals, or have developed working relationships with animal shelters in order to protect the animals who are also targeted by abusers.

1/ @TheTakeaway @tanzinavega really disappointed you had this guest on a show peddling controversial theories that weaponize the failures of the #criminaljusticesystem #racism and #massincarceration against survivors of #domesticviolence and #coercivecontrol.
2/#VAWAs failures lie not only in its non-holistic, non-systemic approach to addressing #DV—not as #coercivecontrol and not in coordination with child safety risks, as it should be—but also in its methodology, assumptions, implementation etc. @thetakeaway @tanzinavega
3/Just because #VAWA is flawed doesn’t mean you throw the baby out with the bath water. Her theories are dangerous to #survivors and hide its misogynist underpinnings as they center #abuser needs over #survivor and #child #safety, #stability #strength. @TheTakeaway @tanzinavega
