As #Thanksgiving falls during #IndigenousHeritageMonth, we have an opportunity to think about how to move from decolonization toward a framework of indiginization. To do so, we must center the voices, experiences and histories of Indigenous Americans, 1/

#ShanquellaRobinson won’t be with her family today. I’m so sorry that her family is not only mourning her, but has to deal with just how cruelly and brazenly she was taken from them.

The case of #BrackeenvHaaland is part of a larger strategy led by conservatives & Big Oil to dismantle tribal sovereignty. @rebeccanagle + @CrookedMedia's podcast is a great place to learn about the Indian Child Welfare Act & how we fight for it. crooked.com/podcast-series…

To wrap this up: Today and every day, keep cold food cold and hot foot hot. When food is between 40° and 140° (4°-60°C) bacteria multiplies rapidly and that bacteria creates toxins that can’t be killed by cooling or heating. That’s how people get sick, sometimes seriously.

Thanksgiving costs more this year. Skyrocketing grocery prices means holiday gatherings will be more expensive. But why are prices so high? You can blame corporate greed and monopolies. 🧵X

In two years, @TxJailProject has disbursed over $250,000 in unrestricted cash aid to families impacted by pretrial incarceration in Texas. This is a BIG deal because it creates a world where communities of care replace systems of punishment. Follow + donate + support!
This season more than 70,000 people in Texas county jails will miss another holiday with their loved ones. We're throwing our support behind @TxJailProject because white supremacy requires investing in anti-ableist, liberating movement building. Follow + support!
Support critical anti racist organizing in the South by donating to @TxJailProject, a grassroots group staffed by five women of color impacted by incarceration who are growing the movement to fight Texas jails & re-invest in community health. secure.actblue.com/donate/texasja…
Healthy communities make jails obsolete.
Did you know that more than one out of every three people incarcerated in Texas is in a county jail? This #GivingTuesday, we're supporting @TxJailProject as they monitor jail conditions, disburse direct aid, & support pretrial release. secure.actblue.com/donate/texasja…
For almost two years, @JenParker393 & I have been talking abt how to create the magazine we want to read. Thru that process & in the collaboration w friends & comrades, we have created Hammer & Hope, a magazine of Black politics & culture. We hope you sign up & join us. twitter.com/HammerandHope/…

Tonight's decision by @elonmusk to reinstate Trump continues the dangerous, downward spiral for #Twitter. Every day this becomes a more toxic place for Black people, our organizers & supporters. #StopToxicTwitter
Thinking of the friends and families of Devin Chandler, Lavel Davis Jr. and D'Sean Perry. The lives of 3 young brilliant Black men were stolen. They deserved to grow old. The entire movement sends their love, strength & healing to Michael Hollins & Marlee Morgan as they fight on.
Today we celebrate the life and work of the amazing Audre Lorde (February 18, 1934-November 17, 1992), who transitioned on this day, 30 years ago. As a radical Black lesbian woman, her words continue to be an inspiration for Black feminist and queer survival to this day.

When we put police in schools with children, they arrest them. Policing is not safety. "What [research studies] do all show consistently is that while we're not sure about any benefits, there are clear and consistent problems with putting police in schools." #PoliceFreeSchools twitter.com/CBSNews/status…

Time and again, white supremacists have tried to use the American Presidency as a way of advancing their racist, dangerous, anti-democratic values. They will not prevail.

Unfortunately we are only given about 50% of the city’s budget to spend on police and that’s just not enough.

One of our ongoing demands for BG’s release is ongoing visible proof of her safety and well-being as well as consistent communication and wellness checks while in custody. How can this happen if even her lawyers don’t know where she is or where she’s headed?

Two years after George Floyd, both Democrats and Republicans are trying to out-blue-lives each other. The real winners of the elections will be the police, no matter who ends up in power. My latest for @TeenVogue on copaganda in the midterms: teenvogue.com/story/crime-20…
