MOVING TO NYC - $$ help if you can
I am excited to announce the news below. However, I am asking my community to help if they can. This big move is costing more than I am able to cover. I’m trying to hustle. BUT it has been a ROUGH ROUGH year - losing my job, traumatic breakup, car accident, moving to a new place in March etc. Rather, than a go fund me. I’m just asking community to donate what they can. I’m missing 2,000 - and will continue to hustle (why is moving so expensive). My paypal email is twinkle9045 at gmail.com.
I will be embarking on a new phase in my life in a bit over 2 weeks, I will be moving to New York City - the first place I truly felt I could call home. I will be working as the Director of Outreach & Community Engagement at the Sylvia Rivera Law Project (SRLP) starting in September - a dream job and unexpected wonderful opportunity. I am excited, humbled, and so full of joy to start this new chapter in my life.
It is a tremendous honor and a phase in my life (a milestone). I am so grateful to have the support of so many amazing people, without whom and their love have made what seemed impossible, possible. The pure love and support from mentors, **Family and Ride or Dies. My countless texts / tears / moments of messiness and love from friends and loves who never doubted this or that something major was going to come. SO many folx that have given so much love support and genuine joy. I am beaming and have been full of humility, wonder, and excitement, the moment I found out and continue to be in awe.
After nearly 8 years in Chicago, I feel blessed to have had such nurturing friends, love, friendships that are/have been transformative, and inspirational moments. Even in the challenging and painful times, I’ve had love around me. I’m sure there will be some goodbyes, tears, messiness, and more. But what life change doesn’t have this!!!
I’d give Juana the world if I could. She is a brilliant community leader and she is moving for survival and so she can do some transformational work at the Sylvia Rivera Law Project. Please help her out and signal boost this!
Scarlett Johansson is a Zionist and supports Israel
stop reblogging pictures of her genocide-loving face
also is the current PR face of an Israeli corporation (SodaStream) with factories built on illegally occupied Palestinian land.
so not just a Zionist, she also directly profits off the continuation of Palestinian oppression
and please don’t give me this “your fave celebrities can be ~problematic!!!!” shit, talkin about how i like to pick apart public figures and to just ~let them live~ without accountability
you are literally talking about movies and entertainment while hundreds of Palestinian children are murdered by Israel with no repercussions
The community in Ferguson is struggling to come up with the money to keep their kids fed, since school has been cancelled all this time, yet people have donated over $12,000 to the murderer who started all of this in the last 24 hours alone. Think about that. And then donate to the right cause.
For all the protesters out there:
So next time you’re in a situation where you are recording an officer and fear for the safety of your video evidence, try using the Bambuser app.
It uploads your video online to your Bambuser account while you record it. You can also stream the video live. This way your videos are saved online, safe from the hands of the uniformed pigs.
Hate doesn’t breed hate. Hate inspires anger in victims of hatred and that anger is called hatred to delegitimize it and villainize people. If you wanna help people who are victims then first you gotta stop acting like they’re just as bad their oppressors and abusers.
