@BrandonTSnider #Fans4WGA is already on this (most of us are fan veterans of 2007-8 WGA strike support) Let me share some pointers:
1) Our fan made strike graphic (by @midnightoilprod) you can use & share it freely anywhere & everywhere Image
@BrandonTSnider @midnightoilprod If you want to do something basically free / no cost & get up to speed on what life on strike is like for WGA members, other entertainment business workers & yes even fans screen this free with ads on YouTube #documentary #PencilsDown by @BrianKalata
@BrandonTSnider @midnightoilprod @BrianKalata If you can do some financial support, the highest & best use of your funds is a donation to @alifeinthearts aka the Entertainment Community Fund (formerly known as The Actors Fund. They will be doing a kind of #MutualAid) for people put out of work by the strike

My dear friends & supporters. A #mutualaid request thread for #disability justice. Please share this appeal.
Another week in the Hunger Games, keeping everyone inspired for making the changes that justice needs across the board.
I need to ask for your urgent help please.
A critical surgery is rapidly approaching on April 28 (see for direct details). However I'm still unable to raise enough to provide any certainty about accessing the treatment, as I have not been able to access necessary lymphatic massage treatment.
As I'm on DSP, without health to currently work (even despite being gatekept away from employment by #disabilitydiscrimination), I'm in no position to fund this myself. Access to healthcare denied just because I've exhausted my resources in funding human rights journalism work.

So some people have been having fun embracing an hour of chaos with Anarchy Goat. One thing people keep mentioning is that it vibes like I got the bugs in those Goat & Goose games meshed in. A couple asked for #TTRPG design advice.

Honestly? It's both purposeful AND accidental.
*For me*, I have a strong sense of "vibes" and aesthetic in the art I enjoy. So for me, it comes down to starting with a strong sense of what genre, themes, and just general aesthetic I'm going for. What is the core concept? How do I initially imagine it playing out?
For this there was a conversation here that spurred me on. Plus I generally like wild chaos games and animal stuff. Like I made an Everyone Is John hack called Just A Normal Human about a horde of critters pretending to be human. So, right in my weird lane [embrace *your* weird].

Today, I want to tell you all a story. I tell a lot of stories, but this one is much more important. This story hasn't had the end written yet. And depending on how we act, right now, we could change and save lives.
If you care about Black trans women, please read and RT. 🧵
The fight for trans liberation is often seen as a purely western phenomenon, but this view does a massive disservice to those who are fighting to exist and thrive all over the world. These people matter, and their stories matter.
I want to introduce you to Richard. An illustration of Richard,...
I had the incredible privilege of speaking to Richard personally, and I was absolutely blown away by her courage, her resilience, and her tenacious optimism. She inspires me and humbles me.
She is a trans woman living in rural Uganda and she is a defender of human rights.

Good evening Twitter Family. I haven't tweeted in a while. Praying that everyone is safe and doing well.
So, I was blessed to be able to move into a rooming house (yay!). But the landlord didn't change the locks and the previous renter stole my things when I was at work. 😡
It's really difficult paying rent every week, commuting to and from work, buying groceries, etc. Then to have someone steal my things only made it harder. I really need hlp with buying a pair of quality shoes b/c I only hv my work boots and I really need to take care of my feet.
If u are able to contribute a donation, any amount will be greatly appreciated. Thank u all in advance. 💙 Please retweet 🙏🏼

"Mutual aid...programs tend to be run on a "by the people, for the people" mindset and prioritize boots-on-the-ground volunteering... Mutual aid also allows for people to communicate what they need, rather than being told by contributing parties."…

I'll apologize before hand for the length of this, but I think I need to explain everything to get the help I need.

In February 2020, I was diagnosed with stage IV ovarian cancer. I have fought to stay alive over the last 1/
couple yrs. I have been through multiple rounds of chemo, biologics therapy, two surgeries(1 that nearly ended my life), ect. I have went through scans every couple months, blood test and every few weeks. Though I have insurance, it rarely covers all costs. I have been
buried in bills. Bills that make living hard. So hard in fact that I had to move back into my parents home. At 43 yrs old, it has been no picnic. But we are all making it work.

My parents have helped me with my bills to the point where they are not in a great place

How to ID #clickbait, contrast it to genuine #activism-#MutualAid-info dissemination, and stop funding grifters: a masterclass in three tweets. Thread, [1/3]:
This is clickbait, from one of the biggest grifters in left-wing spamtivism. They pretend they're giving you important information, but what they're really doing is trolling for ad revenue via web traffic/brand ubiquity: [2/3]
And this is how a trustworthy and genuine activist and helper actually gives you important information: "Hey, JH letting you know Mark Cuban has launched a low-cost online pharmacy at! Ex: Abilify retail $660/scrip, C+ $6/scrip!" [3/3]

Now more than ever Leftists are making their cases against the State. We always seem to be so damn close but we must shake people from their constant consumption. Entertainment, Nationalism, and Religion are the new opiates of the masses.
We can't do it without them. They must understand they can have more and be more than they ever imagined if we but commit to the Revolution. Only Leftist like us can do this. We must seep through every crack in their consciousness. Touch their hearts.
We must reach others deeply as humans. We must show them the better way. We must welcome them in and let them know they are our fellow human beings and we don't seek to divide but unite. Only the power-hungry seek to divide us.

We just received another donation! You know, Shareef Snuggs @iam4M4A and I were just talking about the need to build our communities through #MutualAid, (and while a travel fund is not the same as medical emergency or desperation), we ARE,(1/2)
We are working together w/ @KennyBallentine, to create a truly grassroots, transformative, movement building documentary!

Deep thanks to @WholeWashington, @M4M4ALL @50linesonly @DesnoyersScott @DrJoeQJarvis @DrDooleyMD @ProudSocialist @J_ManPrime21 @wendellpotter and many more!
Lisa and Fran have always understood the vision of the @RedBeretsM4A, ever since we first all found each other online. We understood that we needed to create a social fabric of solidarity towards achieving healthcare justice in this county, and even more broadly, to extend (1/2)

If you haven’t heard of @MOHAVVKJOHNSON, it’s because @LoriLightfoot and the Chicago PD don’t want you to.

Mohawk has been on house arrest for 309 days — with no trial, and despite having no criminal record


🧵 Image
The Chicago PD “has tried to turn the rapper and comedian into a cautionary example to social justice protesters” - @imLeor, @chicagoreader

Mohawk Johnson was arrested at a protest to #DefundThePolice and #AbolishICE

He was charged with aggravated battery of a “peace officer”
While @MOHAVVKJOHNSON was charged with battery, here’s what really happened, in his words:

“Four to five officers grabbed me and held me against the car before they handcuffed me, and didn't tell me why. They kept yelling, 'Don't struggle…’ I said, 'I'm not struggling.’”

Same. I’m 30yrs old & have never once had a job where I didn’t have to deal with racism, sexism, homophobia & Islamophobia. If I can’t make art my career, I am simply screwed Bc I refuse to allow abuse in exchange for a check.
And yes, this absolutely includes the school that furloughed me. My goodness, I dealt with the most blatant racism & when I called it out, I had a director demand a meeting w/ me about “the ways you speak to & think about your white colleagues.” As if those same colleagues didn’t
-literally make a racist song and sing it to my students?! Also, I knew I wouldn’t be asked back after being furloughed because they immediately turned my prayer room into a sick intake room for ppl showing covid symptoms. TRASH!!!!!!!

I’m exhausted with dreaming of money then immediately being consumed with thoughts of money as soon as I wake up. I’m so damned tired. Tired of crowdfunding. Tired of being contacted for creative jobs that don’t pull through. Tired of freelancing & not getting paid. I’m so tired.
For the last few days, I’ve dreamt that my GFM hit $9,300. I will wake up from the dream in the middle of the night, check the GFM, go back to sleep, have the dream again, wake up, check the GFM, go back to sleep, have the dream AGAIN, wake up, check the GFM-

NEW: #Brazil asks for help as deaths from #COVID19 are hitting record daily numbers.

To get a better understanding of the impacts of the #CoronavirusPandemic from the ground, we gathered four perspectives from across the country.…
In small towns across #Brazil like Piúma, Espirito Santo, the health system is insufficient to deal with the surging cases of #coronavirus.

Catarina Mais, a local health professional, spoke to Unicorn Riot saying: “Piúma is asking for help ... Brazil is asking for help.”
Catarina Mais said the #UKvariant, the most aggressive #COVID19 variant, had just entered Piúma, likely from “a tourist from another state or county.” This could be devastating for Piúma, as the population doesn’t have enough hospital beds available nor an ambulance.

A thread and eulogy: Today would have been Sarah DeRoo's 51st birthday but she died in December from a poisoned drug supply in the #DTES. She was smart, kind, generous and beautiful. When we met, she was a teenager who was already using opiates to moderate internal pain. Image
She was a manager in a small company. She was productive, creative and generous with friends. It is no surprise to see her sharing food with people at an enormous protest to advocate for peace in 1986. She strove to make the world a better and more caring place. Image
She was talented and creative. Together we enjoyed writing and reading poetry and listening to music. She would give me notes carefully and elegantly written by hand. She gave everything she could to her friends and the community around her. Image

Since a lot of my fellow Texans are going to apply for aid through @FEMA let’s talk about the agency and some of the barriers disaster survivors encounter and persisting program flaws.
First things first, @FEMA is part of the Department of Homeland Security. Here’s a blog I wrote about its history and shortcomings in how the agency is funded:…
Many people will be applying for Individual Assistance (IA), but past disasters have shown us that help isn’t evenly distributed and frequently struggles to reach those in deepest need. This unpacks some of the class bias in accepted/rejected apps:…
