Inktober Day 18 : Bottle. Here’s to the heartbroken, the unspoken and heart frozen. To the mistaken, forsaken, and overtaken Here’s to the forgotten, the down trodden, for all those who feel rotten. Here’s to the departed, disheartened, and those who haven’t even started. Cheers to those on a slope, those ‘bout to elope, those without a hope. Here’s to all. Even when we fall, may we never forget our call. To love and serve one and all. #inktober #inktober2018 #inktobercatholics #catholiccreatives #bottle #poetry #socialjustice #prayer #prayerwarrior #dignity #humandignity #alllivesmatter #love #peace #dorothyday

Today is #antislavery day. Today, we choose to remember and reflect on the fact that 136,000 people are being trafficked in the UK right now. Right at this very moment. . . Our passion and hope for every person who has suffered the scourge of trafficking is that they would find #freedom , and we believe that one of the most significant paths to freedom for survivors is found in employment, ending the cycle of #retrafficking . To read more about how we plan to use #kombucha to bring freedom to survivors, visit the link in our bio 👆🏼today. . . And please, today would you consider supporting an anti-trafficking #charity ? There are many wonderful organisations out there who are working tirelessly to help end modern slavery. Please show your love and support for them today! 🙌🏼 . . . . #socialpurpose #purpose #justice #socialjustice #business #good #makeachange #entrepreneurs #humantraffickingawareness #antitrafficking #modernslavery #drinksbusiness #dogood #entrepreneur #entrepreneurlife #october #health #healthandwellness #wellness #holos

I just adore this Maya Angelou quote: “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” The reason I love it so much is because she’s absolutely right. When I look back on my own life majority of my fondest memories are the times that brought me loads of happiness and often feature key people who inspired me to be myself and pursue my dreams 💫 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We all have the ability to make others feel empowered and energised. It’s a choice we have to make - do we or don’t we? When you choose to make a positive difference our lives also change for the better. We start to see the world around us in a more positive light and without us even realising, we’ll start to scout for more and more opportunities which aim to do good in our community or network 🤓 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Never underestimate your worth, your ability or the opportunities you have to change even just one person’s life. Know that you matter and be proud of what you can contribute. Maybe have a think about how you can make a difference in your community. No matter how great or small, you’re still making a positive impact. If we all do this, this world will be an even more beautiful place 🌏 👊 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷 | Presenting at @bridgebuildersyouth ‘s UR Retreat & meeting attendee Ruby 😊 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #community #giveback #philanthropy #support #family #friends #kindness #socialjustice #charity #lifequote #lifehacks #lifecoach #mayaangelou #promenadewithme #wisewords #inspiration #qotd #motivation #girlboss #girlpower #melbourne #businesschicks

Day 71/100: weathered • • • Activist work can feel like a Sisyphean task. Most of my experience is in anti-racism and anti-transphobia work. For me, anti-racism education was particularly frustrating. The number of times I had to redo the same work, the number of times I’ve had to build awareness in new relationships... the work feels never-ending. • This frustration is what helped me to understand the difference between revolution and resistance. An enormous shift versus guarding gains and preventing encroachment. • Both are necessary and important. I don’t really have any strong feelings on incremental vs. revolutionary change - we really need both. But I think resistance work is underrated. The little things we do to preserve our piece of mind. The business owner who chases anti-choicers away from her shop. Resistance and disruption are important and constant and tiring and effective. • • • [id: a small red figure pushes a dark brown boulder up a light brown mountain.

"It was an honor to stand with former President Barack Obama, Governor Wolf, Senator Casey, and so many other great Democratic candidates up and down the ballot. We are living through an unprecedented time in our nation's history and it's easy to become disillusioned with the state of our politics and our government -- but this is when it becomes most important to harness that dissatisfaction and channel it into making tangible differences for our country. We have the power to reclaim a Congress that works for us -- not just the very privileged. I'm ready to get to work to make that change, but I can't do it alone. Let's put our democracy to work and make our voices heard."--Scott Wallace, Democratic Nominee for Congress in PA-01 #ScottWallace #PA01 #Election2018 #Midterms2018 #gotv #resist #indivisible #democrats #congress #buckscounty #montco #getoutthevote #healthcare #socialjustice

creating a community all over the nation #sojufam - meet ✨❤Seongwon❤✨ (and comment book recs for her to read 😁) · Q. What is your name? My name is Seongwon Kim. · Q.Who are you? I am 22 years old. I am undocumented Korean-American immigrant.  I like cats and changing my hair color. I believe in democratic socialism, climate change and environment sustainability. · Q. Where's home for you? My home is New Jersey. My family and I immigrated to the U.S. more than 12 years ago. I have been living in the same house, and in the same neighborhood ever since then. I graduated middle and high school in my small town in NJ. I also graduated university from NJ. NJ, USA is my home; this is where my childhood is from with people I love. · Q. What's your biggest goal in life? My biggest goal in life is to work and enjoy my future career in the fields of public policy and international affairs in concentration of governance and economics for the climate change and environment sustainability. · Q. What does the statement: "Legalize Human Beings" mean to you? We(anyone and everyone) have the same rights as you(anyone and everyone). I think that many undocumented immigrants live in fear, agitation, and in feelings of dreadful and irreparable. Legalizing human beings means to free from these daily worries for an undocumented student, who worries about going to a university and getting a job. It means to free from these daily worries for an undocumented parent(s), who cares for the loved ones to be safe and not be separated. · Q.What are your hobbies? My new year's resolution back in January, 2018, was to read many books. I never really enjoyed reading until my senior year in college. Now, I find reading is soothing in a way for me. Also, with a burning candle and a cup of coffee is the best way to read for me. (Please recommend me books to read y'all!) . . . . #soju #speakwear #socialjustice #undocumented #unafraid #immigrants #immigrantsmakeamericagreat #newjersey #legalizehumanbeings #nohumanbeingisillegal #immigrantrights #humanrights #strongwoman
Why can’t black people just exist in peace without white people calling the police? Everyday we hear of a new incident, so when will the blatant racism end? It’s time for people to start minding their business. ♦️♦️247LiveCulture.com♦️♦️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #247liveculture #blm #socialjustice #blackswhoblog #blackblogger #blackbloggers #blackbloggersunited #blackculture #kaepernick #blackmen #blacklivesmatter #motivation #inspiration #takeaknee #blackmenmatter #blackisbeautiful #blackmusic #blackpeople #bloggers #bloggerlife #blacklives #goodvibes #positivevibes #blackowned #blackunity #newblogpost #culture #cultured #bloggerstyle #bloggers
Reflections on the Get Woke Stay Woke conference: Our members enjoyed the original and catchy political music of Justice Arts Collective. The key note speaker, Dean Cooks, spoke about how education is the forefront of social activism sparking thoughts of leadership for our officers. Overall it was an enlightening event and seeing people come together as a community seemed like a lesson throughout the conference. The conference in itself helped build community. Even the street dance workshop showed connection to people experiences, struggles, and triumphs. It was also cool to see high school aged students there eager to learn and being our next leaders. “It made me think of my position as a leader and a person fighting for what’s right.” - @tristyxn #GetWokeStayWoke #SocialJustice #community
In comparison, the US spent 4 trillion (at today's inflation) to win WWII.

[The road to change] Good intentions are not enough. Sure. You’ve got to practice what you preach. But let’s not throw the baby out with the bathwater. Without good intentions we get nowhere. There should be more space for making mistakes, for failing, for changing strategies and for new attempts, while pursuing noble goals. There should be more space for apologies and for encouragement. We should give each other a chance. With cynicism we get nowhere. The road to change is paved with good intentions. We should cherish this pavement. . . . #economics #philosophy #psychology #morality #values #principles #politicaleconomy #moralphilosophy #socialpsychology #socialjustice #equality #goodintentions #idealism #hope #courage #encouragement #connection #openness #empathy #solidarity #meaning #purpose #change #society #socialchange #humanity #betterworld . #economymatters #rethinkingeconomics Making the #economy work for people.

#Repost @correctionsproj ・・・ Harvard Prison Divestment Campaign published an op-Ed in @theharvardcrimson issuing demands that the Harvard Management Company “disclose and divest the full scope of [their] holdings in the prison-industrial complex, [and] also to take meaningful steps to repair the harm that the University has already inflicted through its investment choices.” . Read an excerpt from their statement below, find them on Twitter at @HarvardPDC , and follow them on Facebook to read the entire statement and find information about a community forum they’re hosting on November 1. –– “Harvard enriches and is enriched by a system that keeps 2.3 million souls in shackles and millions more under surveillance. The only truth more unsettling than that would be indifference to these facts, which would indict our own inhumanity and ignore our collective complicity with injustice. This is not an inevitable state of affairs. We can construct an endowment — and hopefully a society — without reliance on prisons and police. If our motto of ‘veritas’ means anything, indeed we must.” –– #DecommercializeJustice #DivestBoston #DivestHarvard #massincarceration #socialjustice #criminaljustice #racialjustice #divestment #prisondivestment #massincarceration

We're honored that our family is featured on @feminismisforboys. It starts with our little ones and it is never too early! Get your babies ready for the revolution!✊🏼 We can create a peaceful and socially just world through the way we raise our children. Feminism is for everyone! A feminist believes in justice and rights for all, regardless of race, or gender. ✊🏼✊🏼 Via @feminismisforboys • • • • • @dr.rosalesmeza and her partner are focused on feminist parenting. “We are a feminist family & raise our child to be an ally in social justice. We are working on building an anti-racist, anti-sexist, & anti heteronormative foundation in our child. We model these things in our home & use books a great deal. We are raising a reader. We allow freedom of gender expression & affirm & accept all sexualities.” Parents have such an awesome responsibility to the future of equality. All children deserve to grow in a culture that accepts and celebrates differences.
