Without women there isn’t a revolution. A great friend sent me ‘revolutionary mothering’ #revolutionarymothering edited by Alexis Pauline Gumbs, China Martens and Mai’a Williams after giving birth to my son. It resonated very deeply. After not feeling welcomed as a new mom into the community work and activism I was doing lightly in Denver I was reminded about the radical wide spread communities of moms who transformed their communities incorporating their motherhood. I owe a lot of inspiration to this book which was inspired by the legacy of radical and queer black feminists in the 1970s and 1980s. I think all of us forget, often, that our voice, our radical actions and words and influence can exist with our motherhood and actually, our motherhood and the way we mother is and can be the transformation we want to see in the world. What a revolutionary act birth and motherhood/parenthood is. Sometimes I get very discouraged with the amount of work that has to be done and then, while finding those silent moments with my son I am pulled back into the present, where all the answers are so very simple. Mothering happens in the context of generations, in the context of generational transformation, in the context of resistance. I’m really feeling my mama wisdom tonight ✨🌺and thinking about so many badass, radical, revolutionary moms who build and remain accountable to the future ✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿#humblestonight #tunningin #wisdom #revolutionaryparenting #revolutionarymothering #raiseuptogether #justanotherbadassmom

I JUST UNDERSTOOD SOMETHING INCREDIBLE! It goes like this: fuck what SIZE my pregnant belly “SHOULD” be at this time of my pregnancy. It should be exactly what it is now. As I tried pregnancy pants for the first time I almost cried how comfortable they are, it hit me: I am ALLOWED to be comfortable and not have to wear pants that are too tight. #for fucks sake I AM PREGNANT. I look like this right now. It’s part what my belly looks right now and part previous fatness and excess skin from weight loss. It’s all combined. IT IS ALL GOOD. Yes, this requires caps. If I could, it would be bold and in cursive. I am the size I am right now. Every pregnant person (yes, PERSON! Women, men, non-binary, genderless, you name it(yourself)) looks different at different times of their pregnancy. Some have bigger, some smaller bellies. Other are more visible, more round, whatever. All are good. All are right. Including me, including what I was before pregnancy and what I am now. And I am not wearing uncomfortable clothes ever again. Fuck that. My pregnancy, while it might feel it’s taking forever, is still too short for uncomfortable clothes or useless self shaming and internalised fat phobia. This is me, this pregnant, right now. Imma ENJOY IT. #embarazadxs #maaliskuiset2019 #fatpositivepregnancy #fatpregnancy #fatactivism #18weekspregnant #raskaana #raskausviikko18 #pregnantdiaries #revolutionarymothering #revolutionarypregnancy #365feministselfie #365feministlife #septumwoman #chilena #embarazadas #embarazada

A few hours into motherhood and we were both exhausted. Little did I know that the worst fatigue was still to come. Living in the global white supremacist, capitalist patriarchy (thank you Bell Hooks!) means that birthing and motherhood is often brutal for women. Especially black women. These systems seek to diminish mothers but who else but a mother can actually burn it all down to the ground and start anew? This #mentalhealthday remember that all Mamas are fighting battles some big and some really small. Our strength is in our solidarity, let us hold one another gently. #thefutureisfemale #smashthepatriarchy #revolutionarymothering

There’s a really good documentary on Netflix about the efforts to overturn Roe v Wade. Dr. Curtis Boyd is in the documentary. He’s over 80 and still performing abortions, and training doctors, in multiple states, including New Mexico. He was my doctor once upon a time. I could give you statistics about women who have abortions, or talk about safety, or the constitution, or my abusive marriage and the choices i had to make but the truth is, abortion should be available to all women, in safe and healthy environments, whenever they choose. Without apology. We don’t belong policing anyone’s body. #realtalktuesday image by @djesikabel go check them out. And if you want to hear more of my thoughts on #reproductivejustice pick up an copy of #revolutionarymothering

One of the most meaningful projects that I've done this past year is the Raising Liberated Workshop workshop series with @parentingforliberation and Just Detention International for mothers who are incarcerated at a California women's prison. We co-developed a curriculum that wove together healing intergenerational trauma, social justice, women of color feminism, revolutionary mothering, and the power of storytelling through poetry and art. We met incredibly resilient mothers who are mothering from prison and beyond, who trusted us and each other with their stories of surivival and preservance and dreams for themselves and their families and futures. If you'd like to learn more about this project, check out the podcast (link in bio). If all goes well, we will be back for another Raising Liberated Children workshop series at the same prison and we hope to keep nurturing this work and the relationships with incarcerated mothers over time. This is just the beginning. So be it, see to it! . . . . #incarceratedmothers #motheringfromprison #poetry #art #storytelling #workshop #chicanamotherwork #parentingforliberation #mothersofcolor #revolutionarymothering #womenofcolorfeminism #healingintergenerationaltrauma

Super pumped to start this residency with my fellow art moms at @wpadc today! #latergram. #repost @wpadc with @get_repost ・・・ Artist Mother Studio (AMS) seeks to shift the conversation around motherhood to broaden its definition beyond that of a universalist white paternalism to an understanding of it as the conditioning of a world to come. For nine weeks, WPA will function as an artist residency with childcare. AMS will conclude with a mini-conference and a zine on November 3. The project has been organized by DC artist Amy Hughes Braden, with the participation of three artists—Leah Lewis, Katherine Tzu-Lan Mann, and Anne Smith—and their four children, who range in age from several months to 3 years. Braden hopes AMS will elevate the voices of artist mothers/caregivers and continue important conversations about communal labor and how mothers can leverage their experiences for positive social change. But most of all, AMS foregrounds the dependency and entanglement of being a caregiver (a loss, in a traditional sense, of personal freedom) as a generative position from which to create art . . . #drivenbyartists #artistmotherstudio #artistmoms #caregiving #invisiblelabour #itwontalwaysbethisway #futuregeneration #revolutionarymothering #artistinresidence #dcartists @hughesbraden @leahleww @ktzulan @anne.c.smith

⚜️🐉🦋COSMIC MOTHER, DIVINE DAUGHTER CODES🦋🐉⚜️ The summer eclipses ignited an even deeper commitment to bridging the mystic and mundane within my life. The sacred Holy Family codes permeated thoroughly and have been activating and carrying us into new paths that are so full and fertile with possibility. For my daughter and I that has unfolded as a new adventure in ✨HOMESCHOOLING✨ this year. We are so excited to explore all the rich curriculum for homeschooling/unschooling and to create an emergent education that reflects and embodies my most deeply cherished spiritual, environmental and social values that weren’t being shared in the school system. Did you know that the modern schooling systems were developed to create factory workers?!?! This is not what I want for my daughter or for any child on Gaia. With this choice, I claim sovereignty as a Mother, that I know best for my daughter. I claim sovereignty to guide her into becoming a woman on her own sacred soul terms. I claim sovereignty to trust myself and my wisdom over that of the machine and distorted illusions so that she too will grow into a woman trusting herself, cherishing her body, knowing it as a sacred temple of truth. I claim sovereignty as a Revolutionary Queen and Mother to teach my daughter according to and in attunement with the Divine Laws of nature. I guard her holy feminine maiden essence and support her in her brilliant path into sensual, wise and loving womanhood in all ways. I anchor this in devotion to the Holy Family Light Codes, in service to the Highest and Deepest good of all beings everywhere. I link this choice to empower and support not only my daughter and myself, but all girl- children and their mothers everywhere. Our children are our greatest legacy, they are the future of Gaia, they are living embodiment of the dream of Golden Dawn. May all children be happy. May all children be free, May all children know their sacred origin and be nurtured and celebrated for the radiant Divine Gifts of Grace that they are. So Mote it Be! 🐉🦋⚜️In devotion to the Divine Cosmic Mother and Daughter Codes, All Avalon Love, Always, Holly Rhiannon 🐉⚜️💙

Mielenosoitukseen lasten kanssa? Näillä pääset alkuun. Tänään osoitetaan mieltä muunsukupuolisten oikeuksien puolesta (Narinkkatori klo 16), siksi että ainoa kehodysforiaan lääketieteellisiä hoitoja tarjoava taho Suomessa, transpoli, on uudella linjauksellaan kieltäytynyt hoitamasta muunsukupuolisia, jotka kuitenkin voivat kokea yhtä voimakasta ristiriitaa suhteessa kehoonsa kuin transsukupuolisetkin. Otan lapset mukaan, koska mä en tiedä, vaikka tämä asia jonain päivänä koskettaisi heitä henkilökohtaisesti. Ja siksi, että näin he oppivat kansalaisvaikuttamisesta ja meille tarjoutuu hyvä tilaisuus jutella, että mikä tämä sukupuoli nyt oikein onkaan (niin kuin mä muka tietäisin!). Joinain päivinä mä oon se energinen mutsi, joka jaksaa olla #revolutionarymother. #muunsukupuolisuus #lastenkanssa #revolutionarymothering

Motherhood is an act of defiance in the midst of colonization. -Dana Erekat I’m so thankful I found this book very early in my mothering journey. I used to be at a place of fear, constantly reacting to the brutalization of Black bodies by police and vigilantes with unconscious self-hate thinking I would never birth a son into a world like this one. How could I? Then I learned that my giving birth to him is the most powerful act of resistance I could ever do. Now I’m two up with an attitude like I wish somebody would. The war is on the womb of Black women. Birth by any means necessary. This is my revolution. Love is the revolution. I’m thankful for the mothers in this book for inspiring me still. #revolutionarymothering

Whatchu wanna say??) It’s such a welcomed change from my teacher life commute of 20km every morning by car. * * On top of all that, the production space @therealgoldelox and @gadstar have created is so inviting and conducive to well...production.
