Native American Heritage Day is a day to remember Indigenous people deserve so much more. It was the votes of Native Americans that helped vote out white supremacy this election cycle. Their voices must be amplified and honored. #November27 #NativeAmericanHeritageDay

This #Thanksgiving2020, help me raise $50K to help 5-10 elder Black Panther activists like my aunt Pam, whose only safety net is the one we make. Any gift is helpful, be it $10, $100, $1,000, or $10,000.

Give back, give Black.

Spread the word.

Give today.

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, aka Thanks-TAKING, a day that has often masked the atrocities against Indigenous people of this land (USA). Let's do our part in acknowledging the resilience of Indigenous people on this day and every day:

November 24th 1865. Mississippi passed the "Black Codes" which kept Black people from owning guns, testifying in court and attending white schools. Eventually other southern states followed suit. #BLM #BlackHistory

My brother, Sergio Marcial, passed away today. When you read the number of people who died today, think of him. He is not a number. He is my brother, and he taught me to fight for LGBTQ and immigrant rights. He also fought for Black Lives through @ReformLAJails. #RIPBRO

Love you Julio. And love you Sergio. So moved by him and his work with us.
