"These are the times to grow our souls. Each of us is called upon to embrace the conviction that despite the powers and principalities bent on commodifying all our human relationships, we have the power within us to create the world anew." #GraceLeeBoggs

An excellent essay on education (and life and the nature of human coexistence), courtesy of the James and #graceleeboggs Center to Nurture Community Leadership, Detroit, November 2018.

[ edit: Photo above is from a 2016 Bernie Voter Registration I organized along with some of these incredible ladies in the photo. Thanks to @leteshamarie for motivating me back in 2015 to join the Progressive movement behind Bernie. It’s still only the beginning, and what we saw with @ocasio2018 is a continuation of this momentum. As well as everything that young progressives believed back in 2007, and those of us involved with anti-war efforts against Bush, to Occupy Wall Street in 2011 and Black Lives Matter since 2014. Because this is not about Bernie, he’s simply one of the few honest leaders in the mainstream that we can channel our demands/movements through and continue to push things forward. There is no messiah figure coming to save us. We are the leaders we’ve been looking for. ] #fuelthebern . _ Original post: Real Progress requires Real Progressives. I’m riding with @berniesanders in the 2020 primary . _ Whether or not he wins the primary, the Justice movement goal is to continue to expand the electorate and push forward real conversations about Economic and Racial Justice . . . _ Without Bernie Sanders, all these other 2020 candidates would have no mention of a Green New Deal or Medicare for All. Without Bernie Sanders there would be no Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez campaign in 2018 . _ So we keep pushing! . . .

rediscovered Toni Morrison 📝 . _ The quote is from a talk she gave in 1975 at Portland State University for the Black studies center public dialogue . _ She said A LOT more than this too. I found the audio on SoundCloud. It’s rather incredible and profoundly appropriate to America in 2019. The link to listen is currently in my story, or you can DM me and I’ll send you link, or try the google . _ #tonimorrison #americanhistory #thisisamerica #blackhistorymonth #knowyourhistory #knowyourworth #weneedartists #weneedpoets #angeladavis #graceleeboggs #reclaimmlk #audrelorde #mayaangelou #bellhooks #idabwells #jamesbaldwin #femthefuture #maryoliver #ahumanistview #lifequotes #youonlyliveonce #fewmayknow #emergentstrategy

Checking out the action at Hudson River Skate Park, NYC . Photo: ©️#kimberlymwang / Eardog.com . Watching children observe reminds me of how perceptive and impressionable they are. They learn by example and mimic what they see. When @barackobama was our President, watching him lead was invigorating. He inspired us to push cynicism aside in favor of clear and positive intentions, coupled with action. @petesouza images of the President so often made me feel tender and grateful that we, as a nation, had a leader who not only articulated himself in a manner that indicated a deep understanding of diplomacy, history and fairness, but also an awareness that impressionable minds were watching. Now, we have a Commander in Chief who bathes his audience in jingoism, misogyny, hatred and xenophobia. If you’re a guardian of young minds, please use every Trumpian speech as a teaching moment (if a tarp and noise cancelling headphones aren’t nearby.) As long as people like #45 cope with their own weaknesses and deficiencies by projecting their hatred onto others, then racism, abuse and hatred will thrive. #RuthBaderGinsburg, #ThurgoodMarshall, #GraceLeeBoggs, #EdithWindsor @malala and the Obama Family are just some of the brave and brilliant souls who remind us of what a clear vision and determination can yield. On this #PresidentsDay I hope we can hold their example fast in our minds and face the alt right onslaught with renewed vigor, as we push for progress and support the orgs dedicated to creating a world where equality is the norm. . . . . . #resist #altwrong #womensrights #hopeandchange #actionnotwords #equality #feministpower #nastywoman #leadershipgoals #diversityisstrength #blacklivesmatter #LGBTQRights #asianamerican #immigrantrightsarehumanrights #equalityforall #editorialphotography #mentorshipmatters #philanthropy #activism #humanrights #globalgoals #climatechange

How does love guide your decisions for today and your plans for the future? What would life look like if your actions were rooted in love of self and love for others? … Perhaps self-love would support you in listening to your body when it’s time to rest, to put the work/phone/laptop down, knowing that it will all still be there waiting for you, but the moment you have to care for yourself is precious and not to be lost. Maybe your love for others will slow you down when you feel pulled to criticize or react without thinking, buying you time to respond consistently with your values and not in the service of ego or defensiveness. … Inhaling, reflect on today: which decisions did you make out of love? What decisions can you still make out of love? Exhaling, set your intention to act in love. … #graceleeboggs #selfcare #womenofcolor #dailymeditationsforwomenofcolor #meditationsforwomenofcolor #mindfulness #meditation #breath #breathforhealing #love #selflove #intuition #liberation #liberationpsychology #decolonize #mentalhealth #decolonizementalhealth #woc #wocmentalhealth #therapyforblackgirls #therapyforlatinas #therapyforasiangirls #therapyfornativegirls #therapyformiddleeasterngirls #therapyforislandgyals #therapyformixedgirls #letsgetfree
