I mean...I'm a fairly mature adult but the phrase "I boosted a toot!" still makes me giggle a bit.
#introduction: I’m Kelly, an #energy #democracy organizer on the East Coast (mostly #newyork- + #newjersey-based, though pretty itinerant). My politics are informed by #socialecology + #communalism. I’m a #queer #femme living with #chronicillness + #disability. In my past life, I was a diplomat and Arabist/Persianist. Side-hustles include #communityorganizing with #symbiosis + #dsalsc. Also I love puns and dogs.

"One cannot survive on duty and ideology, but human relationships can nourish and sustain us."
I feel this year's statement so hard. The longer I live in this world- the more joy and heartbreak I experience - the more I value the intention I and others bring to our work. How we are in relation with one another runs deeper than the words we say or the theories we hold.
The debate about #housing in the US is often framed as a battle between #NIMBY ("not in my back yard") and #YIMBY ("yes in my back yard"): against or for market-driven increases in housing stock in particular neighborhoods.
CityLab (part of The Atlantic) takes a look at the "#PHIMBY" campaign in California by several democratic #socialist chapters: Public Housing In My Back Yard.

Many older environmental groups were created to *stop* things from getting built. The big question facing Sierra Club & others today is “What do you do when building something produces an environmental good?”
If the state & local Clubs won't fight for building dense, livable economically accessible, low-carbon, mixed-use cities, they become at best irrelevant & at worst an enemy of climate action, engaged in predatory delay alongside Shell & the Kochs. #SB827 https://www.modernluxury.com/san-francisco/story/green-house-divided
Exasperated K-2SO is my main emote now.
Syria opinion: "what we need to be demanding is something more like an immediate exit of all imperialist powers from Syria and a negotiated end to the war with protections for civilians and disarming militias on all sides of the conflict and a democratic transition and reconstruction overseen by international monitors (probably, alas, with representation from all the imperial powers to make it work). "

instead of defending tendencies, defend concrete ideas.
when people say “wow these ideas are so good where did u get them” you can then promote the tendency.
this is how you bring people to your side. Give them ideas not labels.

15,000 people were rebuilding the ZAD this weekend, that is awesome!!
Here’s the equation for an awesome compliment according to Marshall Rosenberg:
- Think of something someone has done to make your life wonderful (Do not use names like, you're smart, brilliant, or great, instead explain what they did to make your life so great)
- Think about how that specific action makes you feel
- And finally what need of yours it fulfilled (eg, honesty, peace, connection, meaning, play etc)
So: another’s action+your feels+need it met+actually saying it= amazing compliment.
This rain is abnormally heavy
