#NancyPelosi is definitely not “our own” because she is in no way a leftist. She’s an oppressor. She tries to crush progressives / leftists as much as possible because she serves her mega-wealthy corporate donors.
The Coronavirus pandemic has exaggerated and brought to the forefront the gross inequalities we always knew existed. But for many it’s much more close to home than usual. It has exposed the system we live in, where twenty-six individuals own as much wealth as HALF the world’s population.
Where there is that much wealth in governments and corporations, yet people are being sent away from hospitals due to bed shortages, mass graves dug for those who can’t afford funerals and body bags being sent to Indigenous communities instead of cleaning products.
We’ve been given an opportunity to realise global change is possible, that we can reduce our damage to Mother Earth and our governments do have the resources to support vulnerable people. Many of us have had time to slow down and realise what is actually important to us, what we really do need and what we have left we can share with others.
The biggest loss in this is if we come out the other side unchanged. Normal only served the elite. We the people, it’s time to imagine the revolution.
You’re lookin at the start of our Summer 2020 greens powder!
Something about the colour green.
Thank you Earth,
for allowing us to be Earth Angels
and walk this walk
with the medicine of our ancestors.
It is the season for cinnamon skin
for many of our Indigenous relations
and skin that browns
like tanned leather animal hides.
Shout out to the light-skinned natives also.
The colour of your skin does not
make you any less Indigenous.
It is the time of the season for reclaiming our stories.
We bathe in lakes, rivers, and streams
and wash ourselves clean
of the shame some of our ancestors were taught to feel during colonization.
We are here,
we are strong,
and we’re not going anywhere.
To the land that carries us
— we carry you.

We are delighted to share this programming with you all. We are humbled to be apart of this programming that was initiated by @treefemmecollective .
Engaging in these conversations are fundamental to creating a better community.
Please join us as we engage in potent conversation around approaching wellness from a decolonized perspective. Our intention is to help you develop and apply this perspective in both your personal and professional life guided by one of the founders of @treefemmecollective Dez Davis. We will explore community-focused healing, how to make impact with integrity, and how personal responsibility can serve as a catalyst for supporting societal shifts.
Soleil Ho and Justin Phillips are two of the boldest expressions of radical and liberatory voices in the food media community. Thank you for having me on your Extra Spicy new show! **Repost from @peopleskitchencollective - “One of the things I always want to say out loud when it comes to this idea of organizing and movement work and mutual aid is: Don't try to find an audience. Don't try to find the community. Really dig into where you are. And for us, that was West Oakland."
Listen to PKC co-founder, Jocelyn Jackson ( @justuskitchen ), in conversation with @soleil_ho and @justmrphillips on the latest episode of @sfchronicle new podcast “Extra Spicy." There are so many gems and stories in this special episode!
You can listen here (bit.ly/ExtraSpicyPKC) or wherever you get your podcasts. Link also in profile.

Ok Teachervibes101 tribe and visitors, y’all need to read all of this!
“Quando me vejo, me enxergo coletiva. Floresci nesse terreno arenoso que é a indústria da moda. Trago comigo muitas histórias, a história da minha existência. É impossível falar de mim sem falar dos meus; minhas origens resistem. Sem olhar para o passado não vejo futuro. O ser coletivo é maior do que esse ser indivíduo que me tornei. Celebre sua memória! Dance nos lugares improváveis e revolucione todos os espaços que você pisar”. Day Ana Molina.
We've all been told to buy used clothing as one of the best ways to support eco-fashion. And don't get me wrong—it's great to do so.
But is it the most effective thing we can do to support a circular and sustainable fashion industry?
If you've been dialed into the conversation around plastic pollution, you may have heard of this commonly shared analogy:
If you have a sink overflowing with water with the faucet still on, would you first reach for a mop to clean up the overflow or would you turn off the faucet?
In the plastic pollution discussion, ocean conservationists use this analogy to illustrate the importance of prioritizing our efforts on addressing the source of plastic pollution, with a more preventive approach, rather than on ocean cleanups. After all, so long as we've got people, companies, and waste facilities irresponsibly dumping trash into our waterways in large volumes, ocean cleanups would never be able to solve plastic pollution.
Well, the same thing can be said for the fashion industry.
So long as fast fashion brands keep churning out mass quantities of clothes not designed with circularity (soil-to-soil or mechanical) in mind, made possible using exploited labor and cheapened resources, buying used clothing cannot address the wastefulness and social injustice of the fashion system itself...
