“Trust what they’re telling you, believe that their identity is valid and real, and show them your unconditional love and support.” -- @JayBettergarcia

Thx to the therapists & especially the parents who spoke to me so quickly for this @HuffPostLife story

Read more about how to support a loved one coming out as trans. ❤️

It should be easy to vote - that’s not a controversial position to have. And we should deeply care about disenfranchisement wherever it happens.

Could not love this more! Get your whole community out to vote!

Love this. We will not be stopped. We will not be silenced.

I hope you’ve been hacked, @GovMikeHuckabee. Trying to undermine the faith of the American people in our democracy with this baseless voter-fraud nonsense? Publicly confessing to committing felony violations of AR Code §§7-1-104(a)(11)-(12)?

Not funny. Not cool. Appalling.

So ridiculous! Meanwhile, black and brown voters are standing in line all day long to cast their votes because of attempts to suppress the vote. 🤬

Quoted @BreeNewsome

Asking

“how can we have public safety if we abolish police & prisons?”

is like asking

“how can we harvest cotton if we abolish chattel slavery?”

It’s a question reflecting a lack of imagination & interrogation, an inability to see beyond how society is currently organized.

We have to see beyond current systems and structures to “dismantle the masters house.”

3 more charged in Black Lives Matter protest that ended with Tianna Arata’s arrest

"That the DA's Office would now pursue charges against three Black men, out of hundreds of people who participated in the 7/21 march says a lot about this DA’s Office.”

Under the Trump administration, LGBTQ+ rights have been under attack. We must first undo the harm of this administration, then do more to protect LGBTQ+ Americans—especially trans women of color—from discrimination, harm, and death.

Replying to @Public_Citizen: So defunding the police was just too radical, but defunding education is no problem?

Recently got into the "let's learn R before starting grad school" train and found this. Like wow! Never thought looking at a cheat sheet would make me so happy.

Also, any advice for a #polisci student trying to learn R?

This week, I received an email from a client asking me to ensure my talk is in compliance with the recent Executive Order banning anti-racism workshops, which included not using the term "white privilege" during the session.

I said no and offered to cancel the agreement.

Supreme Court confirmation hearings are set to start on Monday—less than two weeks after members on the committee tested positive for COVID-19. This is utterly reckless.
