#repost @blackvoicespdx ・・・ This time last year Black Voices was busy planning our first ever candidates forum for the Portland Public School’s School Board election. ▪️ To tackle our first forum, we decided to keep the focus on Zone 4 between Rita Moore and Jamila Singleton-Munson ▪️ Looking back, we were babies attempting to fill a void in the Black community. But we didn’t let fear stop us! We forged on and hosted an event our community could be proud to support. ▪️ Congratulations to Rita Moore for securing a seat on PPS’ School Board. ▪️ #notable? #buildone #blackvoices #blackvoicespdx #blackvoicesunited #fistsup #elections #candidates #candidatesforum #may2018 #vote #rockthevote #rockyourvote #localgovernment #getonboard #getonthebus #novotenovoice #campaign #commissioner #county #citycouncil #citycouncilpdx #local #politics #localpolitics #safespaces #gubernatorial #gubernatorialelection #urbvote

Okay one last post today, found this poem i wrote about safe spaces at the bottom of my poetry Google docs. // #safespace #safespaces #poetry #poet #snowflakes #poetrycommunity #romantic #politics

Do you really have a bad life or was there a bad chapter that you choose to continue to relive?

I wish I was in Vegas this weekend attending the #womensmarch but it's not just about the big showcase, it's also about the day-to-day battles for equity. So today while I admire all those marching, I'm also renewing my commitment to fight for justice for humanity! #womensrights #lgbtrights #blacklivesmatter #affordableeducation #safespaces #americansagainsttrump #istandwithkaepernick #metoo

my hardest lesson to learn. as a believer, as a womanist, as a friend. as an emphatic lover. . i feel deeply, i give freely, but i am also worthy of expansive affirming mutually edifying relationships. . i must manage accountability; so, i evict the negative balance from my house. . you at the table of reciprocity? or did you just come to eat my food?

I just came from @barkitcheners where as I stood outside waiting for a cab, I saw an inebriated woman who was granted aggressively trying to push her way in, strangled against a door and slapped multiple times by a visibly stronger female security guard. Helpless and defiled, she became frustrated and wanted to call the police while forcibly trying to get in to address the issue as male security guards stood by doing absolutely nothing! The shit i saw had me sick to my stomach and if myself and the few people who decided to do something did not step in, god knows how much more damage would have been done. I don’t care what your excuse is, you have no right to physically abuse your customers when your duty is to protect them. You owe her answers and results cos I won’t stand for it! NEVER!!! And if I don’t use my platform to address this my ancestors would punish me. HELL NO! HELL NO! HELL NO! We won’t take it from men, we won’t take it from women, we won’t take it from anyone! What if it had been me??? We’re going to get to the bottom of this. If anyone knows the young lady, please give her my love and let her know she deserves better. For now, I stand with you and won’t let you suffer disgrace in silence and alone. I stand as your witness and sis.HELLLLLL NO! Lucky I don’t have a video cos that would put y’all out there fa real! Deal with it!NOW! #women4women #kitcheners #braamfontein #fuckabuse #johannesburg #pussyparty #safespaces #wombman #southafrica

I am so proud to have gone through this training today, it is the first program at our college- (championed by faculty to bring it to our college)to become a trainer to faculty to create safe zones on our campuses. To be surrounded by my colleagues who also gave up their weekend to become trainers in shifting cultural norms from discrimination to acceptance in order to make a real impact in our community- has been an incredible experience. It gives me hope that we can be participants in transforming the world into a more inclusive place. . . . #elpasocommunitycollege #safespaces #shifting #transformation #borderlandrainbowcenter #safezone

I’ll never trade respect for attention. I rather my partner respect me because like @danachanel said, there will be days that I won’t be so easy to love but if the respect is there we can survive anything!

Let’s do this!! @youcanplayteam #inclusioninsport #representationmatters #safespaces #lgbtqathletes 🏳️‍🌈

Everyone benefits from gender equality. While SheFest promotes safe spaces for self-identifying women, we still have lots of events and workshops that are open to all genders. Whether you identify as female, trans, non binary or male you are part of the discussion so get involved! ♀️♂️

welcome to the thrive hive 💕💕💕r/p @soul_spills 💕💕💕

💡Yesterday I shared a beautiful space with the @london_cm Community to talk about safe spaces in mental health and who @sanctusldn are ✨. . It feels so good to have a job and mission I can behind 🔥 In London you hear a lot of people trying to sell you on how to quit your day job to find purpose and fulfillment but I've found that purpose in a full time 9-5 ✌🏻. . If you, or anyone you know, wants to find more spaces to talk about their mental health (or others) in London comment below! . . Cheers to @franxisaugusto for getting best angles 📸 #mindfullness #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #safespaces #mentalhealthadvocacy #careerchange #creativemornings #londonlife #startuplife

We thank these fabulous artists for kicking off our Season Series "Safe Spaces" discussions. We are so grateful to be able to work along side these incredible ladies.. #yourenotalone #notinourhouse #equalityineighteen #safespaces #itsallabouttheart #opheliaunderwater #kastneriskueen

This time last year I was teaching a parent course through one of my favorite non-profits. It was during one of my classes that I realized that neither my parents (nor I) knew much about the pending school board election for our school district. ___ We decided to organize a small candidates forum. I don’t know what we were thinking, but it was huge and we loved every minute. Well, not every minute but we loved many of ‘em. (Ha!) ___ Here we are exactly a year later and we are upping the ante and planning another candidates forum for Multnomah County Commissioner (District 2) and City Council (Position 3). That’s right. We are insane enough to do this again! ___ Our goal is always to make sure marginalized communities are visible in the systems that are supposed to serve them. That goal translates well out of the classroom and into the community. We hope to advocate, educate, empower, inform and unite the voices that are often the most silenced! ___ So, mark your calendars for Saturday, March 24th from 10am to 2pm! All are welcome! Head over to @BlackVoicesPDX and tap the blue button! You can find us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/BlackVoicesPDX/) ___ If you, or your organization, would like to partner with us for this year’s forum, we would love to have you!!! Send us an email at blackvoicespdx@gmail.com. Let’s build! ___ #notable? #buildone #blackvoices #blackvoicespdx #blackvoicesunited #fistsup #elections #candidates #candidatesforum #vote #rockthevote #rockyourvote #localgovernment #getonboard #getonthebus #novotenovoice #campaign #commissioner #county #citycouncil #citycouncilpdx #local #politics #localpolitics #safespaces #gubernatorial #gubernatorialelection #teacherleaders #teachersofig #teacherswag #fistsup!

We are a small group (for now 😏) of community members, activists and plan ol’ regular folks who are eager to create spaces specifically for marginalized communities. ▪️ Like true change agents, we stumbled into this work. We saw a gap and filled it. ▪️ We hope you’ll keep up with the neat things we’re doing throughout the State of Oregon. Don’t be scurred ... we don’t bite. Engage! ▪️ #notable? #buildone #blackvoices #blackvoicespdx #blackvoicesunited #fistsup #elections #candidates #candidatesforum #may2018 #vote #rockthevote #rockyourvote #localgovernment #getonboard #getonthebus #novotenovoice #campaign #commissioner #county #citycouncil #citycouncilpdx #local #politics #localpolitics #safespaces #gubernatorial #gubernatorialelection

So those of you who know me well, know that I have a pretty high ACE Score. (If you’ve never heard of the ACE test, do a quick Google search for it. Take the exam yourself if you’d like.) - I spent the greater part of my childhood exposed to toxic levels of stress. Mix some young adolescent biochemistry in there, and you’ve got a recipe for potential chaos. - I spent most of my young adult life in a state of hyperarousal. I perceived elements of my environment as life-threatening even when no one else around me did. - My muscles were knotted with anxiety. My breath was always short and shallow. I was sick all the time, and so exhausted. - It makes sense to me now since I’ve done a lot of healing, but looking back, I thought I was living in an inescapable hell. I thought that there was absolutely no way someone like me could get better, and that essentially, my life was over. - I didn’t have the capacity to view my future as any other way than bleak at that time, and sometimes it’s hard for me to believe now since I have gone through excellent treatment (check out EMDR therapy). - I began to heal when others helped me to feel safe again. It’s a basic need that can easily be taken for granted. You never know what someone is going through. I put on quite a smiling face on the outside while I was hurting physically and emotionally on the inside. - Today, I still keep a lot of my stories to myself or limit retelling to just my close friends. I don’t need to share the details in order to speak authentically about my experiences with trauma. Other people might take this same approach, too. You really never know what someone is going through. - I continue to research and offer support through somatic movements and invitation-based language in my yoga classes. I want the spaces I’m in to feel inclusive and welcoming. I understand what it feels like to have been seemingly alone with overwhelming stress. - If you are feeling this way: you are not alone. I see you. And you are welcome to share your voice and express yourself when it feels right for you. - In my trauma-informed yoga classes, I co-create a safe space with you while you take time to heal and rest. 💗

Just thinking about how far I’ve come....muse: @sannybeautyy my beloved volunteer that I love to pieces 💕
