The real issue isn’t whether academics should hold conferences or not hold conferences in states that criminalize abortion. It’s that “withholding conferences” is the extent of what academia can imagine as a “political” response to a fascist decision.

Academics talking about boycotting the South as if four of the five monsters who overturned Roe didn’t get their degrees from Harvard and Yale.

Thank you all. It means a lot that I have a great support system that has become my family @earth_daughters. This really touches my heart & will touch my father's heart that you are all attentive to his wellbeing. <3 twitter.com/earth_daughter…
Going on my second week on sleeping in a hospital chair. So while sitting and watching the news, I am asking myself to wake up from this nightmare.
My father hasn’t been released as his health condition fluctuates. So I’m sleep deprived & what is happening around us makes life seem surreal and like a weird dream. Sending everyone good energy to ground themselves during these times.
1/ The Supreme Court has overturned Roe, and decimated the right to abortion in the United States. With this ruling, SCOTUS is allowing Mississippi to enforce its harmful 15-week ban on abortion and is opening the door for state legislatures to further restrict and ban abortion.

It's interesting to me how other Christians are silent on what's happening or failing to recognize how the existence of #RoeVsWade went beyond abortion itself. It's interesting considering how unmarried pregnant women are treated by the church's leadership and the congregation.

If you’re in a state that just banned abortion, DO NOT reach out to these people who are offering to let folks stay at their place if they need an abortion.🧵

In the same 24 hours, scotus made abortion illegal in half the country and the Senate of the largest, most "progressive" state in the Union confirmed that yes, they would like to keep prison slavery in place. That's sitting heavy with me today. #ACA3 #RoeVsWade #EndTheException

If history has taught us anything, it is that poor, Black, Latinx, and Indigenous people will suffer the most from Roe v. Wade being overturned. We must name that.

i’m so tired of abortion rights being framed around truly tragic circumstances like assault and incest. if you get pregnant & you don’t want to be pregnant, it is your right over your own body that is under siege. no one, including a fetus, can use your body against your consent.

The only abortion clinic in West Virginia is no longer performing abortions, as of today. “Roe has never been enough, but in states like West Virginia, it was the only thing protecting abortion access,” executive director Katie Quinonez said. apnews.com/article/live-u…

My father always told me that the U.S. gets to label many third or second world countries as “corrupt” or their governments as “oppressive” bc those countries are just not as good as the U.S. as hiding their corruption and oppression with “laws.” Today continues to prove that.
Wealthy white women will have zero trouble getting abortions and/or birth control. It’ll be the poor black and brown women living in red states who will be effected by this the most.

“Resilience” is a coping strategy, not a virtue. Celebrating resilience without interrogating the challenges, problems, and structural issues folks are routinely forced to confront runs the risk of idealizing the capacity to suffer.

@Ebonyteach Black and Brown women will always be lowballed so if you're receiving lots of speaking requests it may be time to bring in a third party to specifically negotiate on your behalf because your work is worth it! 4/4
Retweeted by Jessica Hernandez, Ph.D.
@Ebonyteach As someone who speaks regularly now, I am signed to an agency that asks for at least x amount - but more importantly, if someone is trying to pay me next to nothing and it's still worth my time - they MUST incur the cost of travel and accommodations. 3/n
Retweeted by Jessica Hernandez, Ph.D.
@Ebonyteach There are people who speak for less than an hour and get offered $15,000 and historically, these organizations will offer Black and Brown speakers less money because [racism, sexism, all the isms] also they don't *really* value the work. 2/n
Retweeted by Jessica Hernandez, Ph.D.
@Ebonyteach Something I learned some time ago is that the speaking industry is a multi-million dollar industry. What does this mean? If you wrote a book, did something tangible, or whatever, you should be at least offered $5000. Anyone offering $500 isn't valuing your labor. 1/n

I understand collegiality. I've been collegial to many, many people who did not... treat me with any such thing. Maybe this was the norm when academics were genteel poverty ("we're comfortable") but we have student loans and multiple obligations in this economy. Things change.

When I was a new assistant professor, I figured, wow, it's $500 for a 45 minute keynote! But the entire gig is 36 hours plus: prep, transportation (especially in a pandemic), accommodations you have no control over, a range of interactions with many, many strangers.
