Regrann from @ywcausa - A wonderful reminder from @taranajaneen to be gentle with yourself, to find joy, and to practice #selfcare . Simply existing and living and finding joy is crucial, beautiful resistance.
“Be gentle with yourself. There's a lot of work we have to do... but you have to take care of yourself. And so I charge you not to let your life be consumed by the work, because taking care of yourself is a part of the work...
“I challenge you to find joy in your life. I challenge you to curate joy in your life and guard it with your life, I challenge you to protect what makes you happy and brings you joy, even if it's the work. I challenge you to lean into that joy and let that joy lead you. This work is gonna be here. But you being alive, you living and thriving, that's how you speak truth to power, because they tried to kill us, y’all. They tried to take us out. They tried to tell us that we can't... I want you to LIVE and let your living, let your existence be resistance.”

Regrann from @selfiegraveyard - Jimmy Kibble was lost at Downtown Dog Lounge Interbay today, last seen around 3rd/Mercer, his mom thinks he may be hiding around parking garages. He likes kids, dogs and is food motivated!
Regrann from @simulacrumbles - #TBT to May 23, 2015 in Oakland, CA when I was arrested in mass arrests to show up for #SayHerName day of action for Black women, girls and femmes killed by police and state violence. Specifically, Mayor Libby had instituted a curfew for protesting after dark (spoiler alert: it's unconstitutional) and hundreds of people decided to #BreakTheCurfew night after night. #BreakTheCurfewForBlackLives#BlackLivesMatter
