#introduction

I am Black, queer, nonbinary, & an unabashed people person. MD/PhD student in NYC; trying to escape with my sanity & ethics intact. Learning to value kindness over cleverness.

Lots of boosts & personal posts here; to be forewarned is to be forearmed.

Listing some things I like until I reach the character limit: tarot, storytelling, video games, worldbuilding, non-vocal music, sci-fi/fantasy (esp from people often erased from our vision of the future), plants, & you (probably).

Ugh, this book was Not Good. I managed to abandon it without finishing, which is a personal triumph of sorts.

In desperation? shamelessness? security that they will get away with it? Fox News simply has started showing fabricated images to try to make the very peaceful Seattle Capitol Hill autonomous zone like a war zone.

This workshop seems like a good low-key way to connect with others that want to take a stand, and do some soothing crafty things together at a distance.

Sad I can't make it

Even if you are being careful because of COVID or can't get to a protest, you can still make a sign and wave it at your nearest street corner.

It's time to make a sign and take a stand.

Can't help but LOL at Fred Glass' using the term "grasstops" to refer to grassroots leadership. 馃樄

(Excerpt from "From Mission to Microchip")

This whole thread, from a Minneapolis councilperson, is a good look into how fundamentally rotten American policing has become. I particularly enjoyed the "the police union is not a real union" explainer. 馃尮

I want to be clear: I am about as pro-union as a person can be. The Police Federation should not be thought of as a union. They do not affiliate with the AFL-CIO. They don鈥檛 walk picket lines in solidarity. How do I know? Because I do and I鈥檝e never seen them on a line. Not once.

Woke up to find this in a message from my partner, and it is nice to feel so seen. 馃樄

What are all y'all's trusted sources for reporting and/or analysis about the ongoing protests?
