Thank you for joining @justicelanow by using your platform to fight against the $3.5 Billion LA Jail Plan! Incarceration is a business! Sad to see more money being invested in caging people instead of investing in community programs. "OUR VISION: An L.A. County where the well-being and health of the community is prioritized over incarceration." - @justicelanow ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Why do First Responders KILL THEMSELVES ??
“”
“”
Well what would you do if the agency you served - fired you after showing signs of abusing the MEDS - that all the shrinks and Doctors had you on for over 1 long touchorous year - as they suggest you go seek help from WCB - ( Work Safe BC )
“”
“”
After being Disrespectfully dismissed - you check yourself into a Detox Center to seek help and you make a claim for a Injury you have never been aware of in the First place “”
“”
After 6 months of being diagnosed with haveing #ptsd By 4 different Phscoligists appointed by WCB - and weeks and more moths of hoop after hoop- your family is starving - your not on meds anymore - you can’t work - you can’t sleep - the bank is comming to take your home - nothing makes sense - and you now owe 13gs to the treatment Center YOU had to pay for while jumping throu all these hoops STILL NOT GETTING ANY HELP —WCB mails you your first Denial that’s says “”
“”
Sorry - you only had 1 year time limit to qualify for benifits “”
“”
People wonder why I loaded all my guns to go shoot and kill everyone at WCB ??
“”
“”
I put the guns away - and would spend the next 3 years trying to prove my Being diagnosed with #ptsd Happened from being a First Responder to The death of Olympic Luge athlete Nodar Kumaritshvili on opening day of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics- “”
Ya wonder why first responders DO NOT ASK FOR HELP - they know it’s not there “
They would rather suffer in silence and continue to go to call after call - nightmare after nightmare than have to sit there watching their family suffer the criminal acts of the WORKERS COMPENSATION BOARD “


Bet YOUR ASS - I will DO and DIE trying to push our current @BCNDP @shanelsimpson @todd_doherty To make these changes in our system “”
“”
Someone is going to be held accountable - mark my WORDS

Victor A Ruiz the executive director of Esperanza, one of the authors who wrote the Mindful Eating for the Beloved Community book said "Buen provecho, traditionally said to someone eating, is very difficult to translate into English. To say that it means “have a good meal” or “bon appetite” does not fully demonstrate the respect and reverence for the experience taking place. Buen provecho is more like a blessing, a sincere wish that your experience with the meal will be positive and nourishing." Click our bio to learn more. .

"In 1991, we invited Svend Robinson, Canada’s first openly gay MP, to speak at our City Hall rally before our first PRIDE parade. Tensions were high after a hateful backlash to Mayor Al Duerr’s proclamation of Calgary’s first “Gay and Lesbian Pride Week”. I could see the SWAT Team on rooftops and protesters, including a guy with 3 Pit Bulls, roamed around the edges of the plaza. It was cloudy, a bit rainy, but over 400 beautiful people had braved the weather and the protestors to gather in the plaza.
As Svend Robinson stepped up to the mic, the clouds pulled apart and a sunbeam shone directly on him. That’s the moment I knew we had arrived. Sure the sunbeam helped, but it was bigger than that.
I saw a community stand up for itself. I saw our allies show us we were not alone. And, I saw governments that could no longer ignore us. We were going to rise up and demand our full rights as citizens - for as long as it would take.
As some chanted that day – “we’re here, we’re queer – you might as well get used to it!” We looked beyond the hatred and celebrated in sunshine for the rest of the day.

Let's all find some sunshine to stand in today. Thanks for sharing your LGBTQ2S+ turning point, Nancy, and an even bigger thanks for fighting for social justice in our city for decades."

Come see @jmils along with other amazing girls at Unplugged G!rl Be Heard’s Holiday Show this Sunday, December 17, 2017 at 3pm at 5 Angels Theater, 789 10th Avenue off 52 Street, NY NY 10019. The show is free, but Girls Be Heard need your help! In this turbulent political climate, and with the tidal wave of the #MeToo movement, it has never been more important to ensure that girls and young women are heard. You have an amazing opportunity to help Girl Be Heard amplify youth’s voices and reach their year-end fundraising goal. The incredible Board of Directors will be matching your gifts dollar for dollar up to $30,000 until December 31. Every single dollar counts! Your donation to Girl Be heard will give more young artists and activists platforms to share their stories, at a time when it is so important for them to speak out. Just $27.50 (5 metrocards) gives the gift of access to get to our programs. $100 provides a metrocard for a full semester; $250 covers emergency assistance (provided by a social worker); $500 gives an artist a paycheck to write and perform in a mainstage show. Being a part of Girl Be Heard has transformed girls abilities to not just tell other people’s story but their own stories.Best wishes to you during this holiday season and look forward to seeing you at the show. #girlbeheard #activism #socialjustice #yesallwomen #humanrights #fightthepower #education #educatedwoman #humanrights #acting #performance #theater #actress #jmils

This is Adrien. And those are his newly harvested leeks! Adrien has 15 children, some of whom are grown up, and others that he still cares for in his home. He’s an incredibly hard worker and an inspiration to the others in his community. This season, his leek harvest earned him $350. For perspective, that’s four times the average for his area. Great work, Adrien! We can see why others look up to you. :)

Happy December 15th to all my Banaban families! 72 years ago today.
On December 15th, 1945, the colonial government relocated the entire Banaban community to Rabi Island so that they could mine the rest of the island. The Banabans were left in army tents in the middle of cyclone season, after being promised two-story, brand new wooden houses. “There were no wooden houses, no two stories, nothing. Just a tent,” Tabunawati told me during my visit to his home. “This was how the Europeans treated the Banaban people.” The British Phosphate Commission used the displacement of the island’s population during World War II as an opportunity to expand their mining operations.

The Banabans’ new life on Fiji was difficult, Tabunawati and Otiong recall. The climate in Fiji is much different than on Banaba, so the community had to learn to plant new crops and adjust to life in a completely foreign environment. “After a few years on the island, we found that life here was very hard, because we were not used to planting cassava, eating banana, or different types of food on Rabi,” Otiong explains. “We really wanted to go home.” Go to @humansofkiribati for more stories!

Hi friends, I’m happy to share that today is the anniversary of my adoption into the best family in the world! My parents are absolutely amazing, but growing up in a transracial family wasn’t always easy. Trying to navigate your identity is complicated enough when you look like those around you! To the educators out there, I ask that you consider how you construct assignments such as family trees, projects about family immigration, heritage and births. While these assignments are fairly typical staples of school projects, they can exclude students who don’t come from “normative” households.
Check out some of the resources from pactadopt.org, an amazing adoption alliance supporting families and children of color!

Yesterday, in a gallery I MCed a Town Hall meeting that I had been planning the entirety of the semester. 70+ of my peers and superiors came. We learned about social justice initiatives, housing services, and the Bone Student Center revitalization efforts. It was amazing to be in such a beautiful space learning how real change is happening on campus. .
