So much of my life has been shaped by the years I spent building some of the foundations of communications practice and organizational infrastructure of the Center for Media Justice alongside @culturejedi And @amy.sonnie It wasn’t easy work but it was rewarding as hell and a small part of me grew more whole with each moment of building the capacity of targeted communities to speak for themselves. Happy 10th anniversary to the Center for Media Justice and here’s to decades more because we all deserve the freedom to communicate, to organize, to share our perspectives, to CHOOSE, to re-enter, to dissent, and to have the infrastructure we need to be heard (am I right @teamreframe?) . . #10yearsofMediaJustice #mediajustice #openinternet #netneutrality #digitalsanctuary #lifeline #lifework #movement #technologyforliberation #cancelthecontract

Thinking a lot about being broken and unbroken. How claiming illness can be healing in an ableist world and how claiming healing is not about overcoming or avoiding but about confronting and digging in and doing the work. And the work of healing is sometimes sweet but often it hurts like hell. There are no shortcuts, there isn’t even a destination. There’s just a practice: of licking wounds, of tenderness, of rocking, of flowing, of stuttering and staggering and of lamenting because even as we claim joy and count blessings we also have the right to take seriously our grief and our sickness and our pain. #notsorry #nodeflection #reflection #unbrokenwater #brokenthings #Lachinecanal #stlawrenceriver #StLawrenceSeaway #colonizedlandscapes #colonizedbodyscapes #mohawkland #sacredwater #kanienkehaka #tiothiàke #latergram #healingtrauma #historicaltrauma #traumaflowsdownstream

My baby! Ready for his fifth march around the sun. The day Teo was born was a full sun 80 degrees and I watched MayDay marchers parade up 15th ave while sweltering in labor. I was sitting on a birthing ball half dressed in a hospital gown watching from a GroupHealth corner window and hoping Teo would make his way out soon enough to see the same day his badass working great grandmother Simeona was born. The midwives told me at 8pm that I still had about seven hours to go, but Teo cannonballed his way out at 10pm wailing his way decisively into a May1st birthday. We’ve marched together at every MayDay rally since and I hope we get to do it together till I move on to the big rally in the sky 😁#MayDay #MayDayBaby #InternationalWorkersDay #TeoSimeon #NamedAfterVisabuela #haymarketsquare #ChitownRoots #labor #laboranddelivery
