Oakland, Oakland. If you’re from Northern CA you’d understand what even the name of that city evokes. Talk about somewhere that people’s human rights are blatantly disregarded. Particularly in the black areas.
Need to keep this short and non-specific, but I have a dear friend who is trying to flee an abusive situation who will be out on the streets with her three-year-old daughter on TUESDAY (October 25) if she cannot find a place to live. PLEASE, if you live in or near Boulder, CO (or know some one who does) and have a room for rent (or know some one who does) PLEASE CONTACT ME ASAP.
AND SIGNAL BOOST THE HELL OUT OF THIS.
You don’t actually need to be from Mississippi in order to sign the petition. Just so that’s clear. I mean, if you’re ever travelling through there, even briefly, this policy could affect you. If the media keeps not telling anybody about it, then you or a relative or a friend could move there and die because of it, without ever having been given the choice TO a choice. And that’s messed up.
