It's #ElectionEve and I want to tell you why I #vote.
My parents were Socialists.
They grew up dirt poor.
They believed in creating change in their lifetimes.
They raised us to believe the same.
When we were small, they were Civil Rights workers.
My dad was a Freedom Rider.
Our early childhood was framed within & by the #CRM.
My mother wasn't well, but she did everything she knew how, to ensure that black Americans had the right to vote, a right she cherished because her mother had been a baby #suffragist and had fought for that right for women.
The fallout for my parents was minor compared to their black friends, but it was violent and hate-strewn and they worried about their children being hurt.
And we were hurt. I got beaten up a lot because then as now I refused silence. I got in a lot of fist fights.
Here is the question no one is asking: Where & how did the homeless get all these RVs???
And why is MSM so quiet about it??? #MSM #Homeless
this man in the video nailed it on the head when he says the city will not give these motorhomes tickets because they don't want a paper trail showing how many homeless are in Los Angeles and being supported
I have done several series on #homeless people and women and teens are at high risk for sexual assault due to their vulnerability and being "invisible" in society. There are few access points to report. scribd.com/document/38694…
There are some disturbing remarks in the threads on @seattletimes article. These imply that because the study was small, it's irrelevant. But that is quite obviously false. Every raped woman is relevant. And the coercion of Native women by non-Native men has historical context.
Native women are the least addressed in the context of the #MeToo movement. Homeless women are not mentioned at all. This @seattletimes article highlights that fact. For that reason and more it should be read and shared and discussed--but in no way dismissed.
Delightful! note that the province committed over 30mil. the nonprofit developer, vancouver chinatown foundation, raising the same. city contributing land, & more, & headaches. #vanpoli after oct, pls ask why the gov't won't meet w/ you. (can't wait.) #homeless ppl need homes,
idiots,. they can't live in your millitant post-post-modern dissent. you're using people you've coerced to be there as props. and none of you read the RZ report or attended subsequent meetings. you are not actually interested in housing at #58WHastings. clearly. #HousingJustice
you'll weaponize the whole project, and THIRTLY MILLION DOLLARS from the province, they are willing to try something here. you do this shit, do you think they'll spend another dime in the #DTES? its ok for you, b/c then you can Fight the Government! so hardcore radical.
If you come across any homeless people in your area then please please do what you can to help. Here is a list of what you can do to help
1) Contact StreetLink if you see anyone sleeping rough in England and Wales. They will help the homeless get in contact with their local services. You can send StreetLink an alert via its website, app, or by calling 0300 500 0914.
