If you have followed me on here for some time now, or even if you’re new, and you know and believe in the work I do, please donate some money as I run a 5K for Justice.

Each year I work with a program in which we train 8-9 college students for 6 weeks to give them the tools they need to become the next leaders in San Diego. The program is called Students for Economic Justice (you can learn more about the program, here: http://bit.ly/Vtsbcb) & we desperately need and want to extend the program but lack funding for it. 

YOUR donation could help us spend more time training our interns to ensure they have all the tools they need to be effective leaders when they return to their college campuses. 

Please click the link above and donate what you can and help us, help them make a difference!

Thanks!

What do you think his thoughts are when he sees images like this of people who look like him?

Yesterday at our National Moment of Silence in San Diego, my friend, Nate Howard, dropped this spoken word piece on us and shared his story of being beaten by police on two separate occasions, in two different cities. Both of his stories went national. He had most of us in tears.

"I got my bachelors but I’ve been working for my masters since 1853"

Please share this far and wide.

My thoughts on the respectability politics that are being played around Mike Brown’s death.

My post can be found here: http://bit.ly/1rnrCe6

So this is what happened last night as residents in Ferguson, the city where Mike Brown was killed, gathered together to mourn and PEACEFULLY protest Brown’s murder at the hands of the police.

Now the picture on the top is in 1963, over 50 years ago. The picture on the bottom was just last night, 2014! The residents have their hands raised in the way that Mike brown raised his to show that he was not a threat.

This shouldn’t even have to happen! #NeverForget

August 9th is International Day of the Worlds Indigenous Peoples. Today we celebrate and honor the history, culture, languages & lands of indigenous peoples.

It is estimated that there are some 370 million indigenous people spread across 70 countries worldwide in various regions from Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, Oceania and more. Indigenous people account for less than 6% of the total world population which is why it is increasingly important that we protect their rights.

It’s imperative that we create & preserve the conditions for indigenous leaders & community members to peacefully defend their rights as there are entire communities that are denied access to their ancestral lands.

Indigenous people are also particularly vulnerable to exploitation, marginalization & oppression due to colonization & occupation, especially from European expansion & colonialism.

Today is a great day to learn more about aboriginal/indigenous people, especially the uncontacted tribes living in densely forested areas in South America, New Guinea & India, that have managed to live in voluntary isolation without the contact with global civilization.

Happy International Day of the Worlds Indigenous Peoples!
