Free Palestine 🇵🇸

Several Palestinian flags being raised 

I hope people who read Parable of the Sower will think about where we seem to be heading—we the United States, even we the human species. Where are we going? What sort of future are we creating? Is it the kind of future you want to live in? If it isn't, what can we do to create a better future? Individually and in groups, what can we do?

- Octavia Butler

 

And in that spirit...💫

I'll just jump right in, below are some actions, readings, and resources. (Sorry. Unfortunately, I couldn't share yesterday's protest if you're  based in LA since I post on Sundays. But, I must say it was definitely something to hear so many children chant "Free Palestine!" as we marched. May their voices be heard all over the world. 🙏🏽 )

    Again, a totally non-exhaustive list of readings, resources, and actions. Hopefully, though, this will be at least a little helpful. With that said, I truly am at the feet of so many people that have come before me and folks who've been doing and continue to do so much work. 

    I wish I could honor every being on this planet that is trying to make this world a better place whether that has been through their art, activism, organizing, joy, healing, teaching, writing, food, care for self and others, and through so many other acts of resistance that often go unnoticed and/or dismissed. May we also honor you each day. Thank you and see you next week. 🙏🏽❤️🙇🏽‍♀️
