🥳 FUN FACT:⠀ ⠀ Two of our team have been through sleeping on the floor in their bedless Brooklyn apartment, grabbing Halal Guys at 4am (on more than one occasion), almost falling into the East River while singing chutney songs (also at 4am), and spending countless nights eating spelt loaves from Dean & Deluca and fried chicken while writing academic papers and suffering through the most boring of readings.⠀ ⠀ The third team member is some random from Germany — at least he was, but now he’s one of us.

They key to a truly great event is the kitchen staff. Their hard work not only gives you something to eat but a great topic to bring up when you inevitably run out of things to say. There’s no conversation a quick “isn’t this food amazing?” Or “ have you tried this (insert food here) yet?” cant save. Ok maybe I just like doing events for the free food... #fundraiser #aclu #humanrights #advocacy #lifetolenses #ctphotographer #ctevents #cteventphotographer

This chair is everything. At first glance, you might just see it as a rocking chair. Look a little closer, though, and you will see that it is an invitation. An invitation for you and for me to come together to learn, to grow, to laugh and to cry. It’s an invitation to become vulnerable and humble. It’s an invitation to connect and to celebrate … to be courageous and to be kind. It’s an invitation to talk about the little things like the weather or the latest book you’ve read or about the big things like racism, violence and prejudice. It’s an invitation to hear one another, to see one another. It’s invitation for cause and for community. Yes, this chair is everything. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Portland and Pacific NW peeps, please take the time visit GreenHaus. Beyond having incredible art and items (like this chair!), @greenhausgallery is the ultimate invitation for community, love, and respect. (Thank you, @greenhausgallery, for inviting me into your world and extending conversation, tears, laughter and friendship.) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #portland #pdx #community #love #communityempowerment #womenempowerment #womensupportingwomen #speakup #loveloud  #advocacy #brave #weareone #blackmamasmatter #peacetalking #bethechange

organization: @earthjustice is america’s largest nonprofit environmental law organization. earthjustice generally represents three types of cases; those concerning the wild, healthy communities, and clean energy and healthy climate. these three key goals all contribute to fighting for a clean and healthy earth for the future of the next generation and of the planet and everything that inhabits it! currently, earthjustice has a movement called overruling trump, which legally fights the trump administrations attempt to weaken environmental regulations. in overruling trump, earthjustice has 130 lawyers, who have currently gone through 127 lawsuits. recently, earthjustice won a lawsuit that sued trump for not having the power to issue an executive order to allow for 98% of the artic ocean to be opened to oil drilling! earthjustice represents each of their clients free of charge, because it is important to them to “hold those who break our nation’s [environmental] laws accountable for their actions”. learn more about earthjustice and their lawsuits on their website earthjustice.org. 📸: @earthjustice 📃 📃 📃 📃 📃 #painttheworldgreen #green #alternative #zerowaste #quote #fact #tip #tipsandtricks #brand #sustainablebrands #sustainable #sustainability #earth #planet #green #greenteam #climatechange #globalwarming #environment #environmentalawareness #environmentalscience #recycle #reducereuserecycle #lifehack #advocacy #instagram #earthjustice #law

Dispelling myths as I write research this afternoon about mental WELLness and writing about the bias and predjudice faced by those with mental WELLness symptoms in our society. The media does a TERRIBLE job and reinforcing bias of mental health symptoms. The facts matter. These stats come from MentalHealth.gov and were updated in 2017.

“Repensar o direcionamento dos cuidados das crianças e dos trabalhos de casa apenas às mulheres. Quando a gente faz isso, a gente acaba restringindo as possibilidades de ação dessas mulheres e faz com que, por exemplo, elas estejam em pouca quantidade no mercado formal de trabalho, na ciência, na política e em vários outros espaços de atuação.” @jamillemfg mulher, mãe e pesquisadora deixa um recado para repensarmos os papéis de gênero em nossa sociedade.

We're committed to fighting the stigma and misinformation as it relate to #abortions. Today we facilitated a #safeabortions #advocacy Training as a satellite event for the @women_deliver #wd2019 Conference. It really is #thepowerof #herchoice #herrights #her Thanks for the conversations and participation @wwguyana @yamguyana @youthcouncilgy @aspireyngy SRHR Adventures and Step by Step Foundation

I'm so thankful to be able to stop and listen to the voice inside me so deeply; it's never led me astray and I wanted to spread that message to you all. Our intuition is our higher self communicating with us - pay attention to this beautiful force 💙 How often do you stop and check-in with your inner voice?

It’s amazing to me that I’m at Child Haven, the very place I spent some time at as a child. Things coming together full circle. CASA Las Vegas currently has around 350 volunteers for 1000 children, but that leaves over 3000 other children without a CASA worker, and many of them are sibling groups. My siblings and I didn’t have a CASA worker and so it’s very important for me to be that person for these children that I really needed back then. #casa #courtappointedspecialadvocates #lasvegas #fostercare #advocacy

🛑🛑🛑TRIGGER WARNING: Promoting disordered eating & fatphobia in children - I just posted earlier today about alarming statistics related to eating disorders and dieting behaviours in young children. Shortly after, I was informed of a mother who just recently posted about her outrage when her daughter (in Grade 5) got sent home with some disturbing “homework” as part of her health unit in school. With her permission (@keadiamond), I decided to share some of those images (swipe⏭) - Like this mom, I want to express my sincere gratitude for all the amazing teachers out there as they are such a underpaid, overworked, and under appreciated profession. This post is not meant to express any negative about any teacher, but simply shed light on inappropriate material. - WE CAN DO BETTER! - The fact that children are being asked to count calories and estimate calorie burn of activities is bad enough....Don’t even get me started there. But I also want to draw attention to some of the disturbing messages included in this formal assignment: - “if it was easy everyone would be thin” “do you really want to look and feel like that for the rest of your life“ “running is cheaper than therapy” ”unless you puke, faint, or die keep going” ..... If these are the messages that are included in formal assignments, what other informal messages are children receiving. We need to realize that these messages are NOT health promoting and can do serious harm! - Thankfully, it sounds like this moms amazing advocacy on this resulted in the learning material being adjusted👏

So grateful to be here at Victory Park supporting our President Celine Pham as she shares her mental health and wellness story. We love you, Celine! She’s doing a great job representing @sjdeltacollege 💗💚💓💚 #mentalhealthawarenessmonth #mentalhealthawareness #wellness #saturdaymorning #activeminds #sjdeltacollege #advocacy

May we all be as courageous and determined to right the wrongs, call out the systemic bullshit, heal the harmed, proactively foster resilience, and give our all to solving environmental catastrophes and racial injustices as Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha was with regard to the Flint water crisis, a true American abominable horror. For anyone defiantly standing up (or thinking of speaking up loudly) to a system or the government, read WHAT THE EYES DON’T SEE. By sharing her journey she highlights the immeasurable toll and reward of doing so. 💪🏻 _____________________ “We were grounded in the same core ideals and morals — and were always moving toward the same goal: to make the world more just, more equitable, and a more human place. To do the right thing, even if it was hard. This wasn’t about my career over the next few years, or even a tarred reputation. This was about how my entire life would look to me years from now... and wonder if their problems were related to a poison I hadn’t done enough about. It wasn’t a choice, really. I was ready to do whatever was needed. And now all I had to do was try and spend the rest of the weekend being real and present and not freaked out. That didn’t happen.” (Pg. 208) 💥 _____________________ 💦 🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤💦 #stackroom #bookstagram #bookinstagram #2019reads #book #books #bookshelf #bookclub #bookish #whattheeyesdontsee #monahannaattisha #narrativenonfiction #flint #racialdiscriminatiom #inequity #discrimination #oppression #flintwatercrisis #flintwater #flintkids #environmentaldisaster #systemicabuse #corruption #advocacy #health #healthcare

Maybe it’s your child or a sibling, your cousin, your partner, neighbor, or co-worker... if you love an adopted person, or even care about them, you will advocate for them. You can write legislators in support of Adoptee Rights, or support them in their family search and in reunion. You can correct harmful narratives about adoption and adopted people, including misinformation within your social circles and community • Adopted people make up 2-3% of the U.S. population. Nearly 100 million Americans have adoption in their immediate family. There aren’t many of us and we need people fighting for us, not against us. . . . #adoption #adopted #adopteerights #humanrights #adopteevoices #advocacy #fp365

Melynda Burdette Wintrol @melyndasings called me from a workshop and said “meet this lady, her work is cool!!! Look at her for The aCHIeve Project.” ( Body Mapping..... ) So I did what I was told .... Glad I listened. We met at a Starbucks and locked eye to eye for three hours!!! I knew we could learn a lot about what’s wrong in this world from one another, but more accurately what is right. It was a feeling I got just by our connection to each other. She GETS Something very deep that many miss in this world. It’s spirit and body connection and the human condition. This girl is on a mission!!!!!

The Decline Of One Sea Population has Caused An Increase In Another The sunflower sea star population of the coast of Big Sur California has been on the decline for the past six years. Their decline began in 2015 which coincided with an increase warming of the ocean. The sea stars have all but disappeared from the ecosystem entirely. Their disappearance has lead to the rise of another species – sea urchins. The sea stars are an integral part of the ecosystem. With the sea star predators out of the picture, the sea urchin prey population exploded. The sea urchins are aggressively eating everything in sight. Urchins love eating bull kelp, which can destroy the entire kelp forest. The kelp forests support nurseries of young sea creatures that need the protection of the forest to grow up successfully. It is still unknown how to help regrow the sea star population but many are working to come up with solutions. Balance is the key to a healthy environment, ecosystem and life for all! #oceansinfocus #education #conservation #marinelife #monterey #seastar #seaurchin #urchin #balance #underwaterphotography #ocean #advocacy #environment #globalwarming #globalwarmingisreal #climatechange #nature

I assume, most of you are already quite familiar with the concept of freedom of speech, or more widely, freedom of expression. (I’ll use “FoE” from now on) But be honest and ask yourself “Do I appreciate FoE enough?” Most people living in the west take the privilege of being able to speak their minds for granted. We have the option to debate politics, religion and other topics which could land us in jail, if we were unlucky enough to be born in a country that does not have FoE as part of its culture. 🌲 What we often forget nowadays, is that part of FoE is also freedom to be exposed to views, which are different from our own. And yes, that includes all the views, including ones we absolutely disagree with, whether they are Nazis, Communists, Authoritarians, Anarchists, etc. And honestly, I get how tempting it is to go with the mainstream “He’s a Nazi/racist/Alt-Right/Trump supporter, his views are offensive and he shouldn’t be able to speak” mentality, but honestly, who gets to decide what is offensive? Sure, you could argue that for example Nazis are generally despicable enough to have their ideas dismissed. But who gets to decide, who is a Nazi? Should it apply only to people who self-identify as a Nazi? Or should it, as we can see again and again on YouTube for example, be applied to people who are merely called “Nazi” because someone disagrees with them? And what about Communists? Their ideology led to a bigger pile of corpses than National Socialism did. Shouldn’t they also be dismissed and banned? 🌲 Personally, I simply do not trust any government or company to decide what is acceptable and what is not acceptable to say. I have seen examples of this happening when I went to China. I tried to ask our local guide about certain cultural/political topics and he could not answer, since how can you debate things such as Freedom of Speech, Human Rights or Democracy, if your government does not allow you to know about these concepts in the first place? —————————— ‪#rightwing #leftwing #libertarian #authoritarian #liberal #conservative #lgbt #transgender #advocacy #feminism #antifeminism #antifa #gay #lesbian #bisexual #pansexual #freespeech #freedomofspeech
