whenever i see these post-apocalyptic films set in the USA where everyone is pretty much just killing each other with no mention of other nations i always just assume that the rest of the world is fine and has learnt how to resume life as normal

The whole side chick main chick bullshit is boys trying to create a pop culture in which cheating on the woman you’re with is considered cool or normal.

Don’t perpetuate it.

Support For @FeministGriote To Attend Facing Race 2014

Facing Race: A National Conference is going to be held in Dallas, Texas from November 13-15, and this post is to raise funds for Black feminist scholar, social worker, critical thinker and my friend Lutze - @FeministGriote. ($960.00 for registration fee, roundtrip flight from FL to TX and hotel; DONATE here).

She’s an incredible voice for people who face oppression in our society and brings a sharp and unique perspective as a Black woman committed to queering space/understanding, who works with QTPoC as a social worker and activist with an intersectional lens (a hybrid one, as Haitian raised in America), and also contributes to critical Black feminist scholarship and discourse online.

As she describes her own work and goal:

I do diversity and inclusion training in Miami and attending Facing Race would allow me to deepen and enhance my skills that can be put into praxis at my job immediately. I also desire to connect with other folks doing social justice work and it will help frame my work in the future. I work for a small non-profit; they have no money to send me to this trip due to budgeting constraints.Financially, this year has been tough on me and I cannot afford to go to this conference without negative impact on my other bills.  

Asking strangers for monetary support is not easy for me, but I am going to be vulnerable in this moment. I want to go to this conference and I am willing to accept the kindness of others to do so. 

This conference allows access to critical information, discourse, and relationship/coalition building for individuals and organizations, on the topic of race. And it is important to have a plethora of voices when it comes to race, for Black people. Often these voices are only cishet Black men’s voices. We need voices of Black women, especially who work with queer and trans people of colour, as @FeministGriote does, as Miami has a racially and culturally diverse population.

The registration fee, the roundtrip flight and the hotel will cost $960.00. Please DONATE and support her attendance! Donations can be send DIRECTLY to her PayPal (thefeministgriote@gmail.com). Please send ASAP so her registration and flight can be booked ahead of time, as the latter will increase in price as time passes.

Thank you so much for supporting not just my friend but a critical voice on race and intersectionality! Let’s get @FeministGriote to Facing Race 2014!
