I’m continuing this fight here on the ground with local branches of @PPact  , @AbortionFunds  & @ACLU  . Help Texans directly by donating to 9 Texas abortion funds here:

Is this really the type of colonizer 'hot take' the @washingtonpost  wants to publish in 2021- sardonically characterizing curry as "one spice " and that all of India's cuisine is based on it?

So I had a few thoughts on that piece in the @washingtonpost  about Indian food… 😏

New variants are thriving where vaccination rates are low. It’s inhumane and dangerous to limit access to vaccinations. We need vaccine equity now. @UNDP  #UNGA  #VaccineEquity  #AShotForAll 

Texans are up against so much right now- a hateful anti-abortion bill, erasure of voting rights, and a humanitarian & Constitutional crisis at the border. Houston is one of the most diverse cities in the U.S. Its govt & the majority of its ppl oppose @GovAbbott 's heinous bills.

@MonmouthPoll  : only 11% of Americans say abortion should always be illegal 24% say it should be illegal except for rape, incest, or to save the mother’s life

Abortion rights are human rights 💪🏿💪🏾💪🏽💪🏼💪🏻 Find your march: #rallyforabortionjustice

How am I just finding out about this now?

Germany doesn’t have Nazi monuments to “remind” citizens of their history. Instead, they have memorials for the 6 million Jews and others who were murdered. The U.S. doesn’t need statues of confederate generals to “remind” us. We need monuments for Nat Turner & Harriet Tubman.

If your Senators vote against the $2,000 stimulus check, return the favor by voting them out of office

NONE of the @LMPD  officers who murdered Breonna Taylor on March 13th have been fired or charged any crimes. They are all being paid as usual. (L-R) their names are: Myles Cosgrove Jonathan Mattingly Brett Hankison

In this country Viagra is covered by insurance without question, but birth control coverage is dependent upon the religious ideals of employers/institutions. If that sounds: - misogynistic - discriminatory - irresponsible - indicative of systemic sexism that’s because it is!

Ted Cruz tweeting a glowing tribute to Rush Limbaugh from a resort in Cancun (where he flew tonight while his constituents are literally freezing to death) is peak @GOP .

A team of doctors obfuscating & concealing the truth about a leader's health is a common occurrence in authoritarian regimes

When you hear kids won’t be going back to school until September:

One day after 8 people were killed due to hatred of Asian women, how dare 172 Republicans vote against the Violence Against Women Act? The most contentious part of the act? Preventing people convicted of domestic abuse or stalking from purchasing a firearm.
