Defend the Sacred

Sacred Stone Camp

In April, indigenous activists began protesting construction of the Dakota Access pipeline which stands to contaminate the Missouri River, a water source for thousands of Standing Rock Sioux and millions downstream. In September, more than 100 tribes unified in historic gatherings, and protectors were attacked with pepper spray and dogs while trying to defend a tribal burial site being bulldozed by the pipeline company. President Obama has since paused DAPL, but … Continue reading Sacred Stone Camp

Soon afterwards residents voiced concerns about the quality of the water of which photos have gone viral and in which bacteria and possible carcinogens have been found. Just heard one of the toughest stories I've heard in my life. Nakeyja, a resident of Flint, showed me … Continue reading Don’t Forget About Flint

Pulse

This past Sunday morning 49 people were killed at the gay club Pulse in Orlando on its weekly Latin Night event. Pulse opened in 2004 and named in honor of founder Barbara Poma’s brother, who died of AIDS. At least 50 other people were injured. While images of long blood donation lines are nice, it’s very disheartening to see mass shootings so frequently. It’s disgusting to see … Continue reading Pulse

Think Before You Pink

I know I should’ve written this way earlier in the month, but perhaps if I haven’t gotten around to it, you haven’t either. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month which has become synonymous with Susan G. Komen’s pink ribbons. But with everything from grocery aisles to football fields going pink, it seems similar to what probable Baby Boomers call “slacktivism.” This might basely include “online activism” but could … Continue reading Think Before You Pink

Syrian Refugee Help

Yuri Kozyrev | Noor At least in my very American experience, when mainstream news isn’t treating Donald Trump like a lax white parent with a bratty kid in public, they’re mentioning a refugee crisis in Europe. It is really more of a mention as we get pictures and record of terrible things happening but no real substantial time spent or explanations. It shouldn’t take that to want … Continue reading Syrian Refugee Help

Super Typhoon Haiyan Disaster Relief

Super Typhoon Haiyan Disaster Relief Please consider donating to help the people effected by Haiyan. The typhoon is said to have been 3x stronger than Hurricane Katrina, its winds close to 200mph, and thought to have left 10,000 people dead. I donated to GlobalGiving because their CharityNavigator rating is very high, and they say their funds go toward emergency relief and long-term effects. I’d also … Continue reading Super Typhoon Haiyan Disaster Relief
