Funding request for unhoused Oakland neighbors 

One of the longest standing communities for displaced neighbors in West #Oakland is at risk.

Dozens of families could have their community, shelter, belongings, and health ripped from them, funded by your (and my!) tax dollars.

Can you help?

A note re: US crisis hotline news: #9-8-8 

@packbat The old hotline number is still in service, too. From the article:

"National Suicide Prevention Lifeline's 10-digit number — 1-800-273-8255 — will remain active, but calls will be routed to 988."

US crisis hotline news: #9-8-8 

In the US, dialing 988 will connect you to a local crisis call center. This replaces the old National Suicide Prevention Lifeline phone number. Parallel to this, a big boost in funding for crisis hotlines has been introduced.

About the "nonbinary crossbow" :nb_crossbow: 

I designed the "nonbinary crossbow" :nb_crossbow: about a year ago. I'd like to explain the meanings behind each element.

First off, there are the mirror of Venus and spear of Mars--traditional symbols of female and male identities, respectively.

But the central circle is intended to represent agender identities, and the incomplete arc to represent demi- and other nonbinary identities. 1/

FFS if you can understand that gender/sexuality/class are social constructs with status hierarchies, then you can understand that intelligence, education attainment, and "intact brains" are constructs that do the same thing.

Way back then I also shared the original #BIPOC #Pride flag! Designed by a fellow queer of color!

Here's the link to the original designer of it! (via wayback, because at least tumblr seems to not be live anymore):
