The @naacp is calling for people who believe @facebook needs to check their business practices to Logout of Facebook and @instagram for a week starting Dec 18th — “The list of areas that have been identified to address is long and a reminder of how many shortcomings there are on the platform. These include voter suppression tactics; accountability infrastructure; content moderation; advertising targeting; diversity and inclusion among employees; as well as the need to take out bias from AI and algorithms; privacy and transparency.” #logoutfacebook#dataprivacy#databreach#naacp#votersrights#dataprotection#advocacy#equality#equalrights
*s.o to ALL workers in the public service field* While I am ALWAYS advocating for self-care, the truth is I am working to create a just world where having a career, starting a family or just being human doesn’t stop you from taking basic care of yourself. Self-care is something that the public service sector constantly pushes on their employees yet gives no means to actually do so. Workers often are made to feel that they are just cogs in the machine and that their work doesn’t matter when it is some of THE MOST important work out there. The caretakers of the world are working for and against a system that refuses to take care of them. Fight the system by advocating for better benefits, higher salaries, supervisors who are leaders and not just bosses, and clearer working terms. The system can change but we must all play a role in making it happen!
Choose Kindness, not Bullying...
Bullying in sports, in the classroom, or online can cause children to become isolated and is a known risk factor for suicide. Kindness means giving everyone a chance to succeed. Give a child the chance to see the light of acceptance...
#stopthebullyingnowfoundation is the only anti bullying organization associated with the Department of Justice. Please donate to the go fund me listed here so those in need of help can receive the help they require to have a positive life.
Our Birthday representative for December is Tallahassee's own Derek Carraway!
Derek suffered a stroke at birth that left him with multiple disabilities including mild cerebral palsy. He has been a regular attendee of the Annual Family Cafe for nearly 20 years, and a part of the Florida Youth Council since 2010. The self advocacy and leadership skills that Derek learned from these events has helped him navigate his way through the school system and into the workplace. Since graduating college with a Bachelor of Sciences in Information Technologies, Derek has landed a job at Florida State University as their IT Services Coordinator. When he isn't working, Derek enjoys watching football and volunteering with his church.

On my way to my hand doctor. Have a fellow passenger who has a bathroom emergency and the cabbie refused to stop, saying it's impossible, we're on the freeway. I told him no way, there are medical conditions that make it impossible to hold it, if she has to go, she has to. She said yes, she has MS. I said my sister had MS and struggled with bathroom issues. Finally got the cabbie to pull off. Ridiculous. #chronicillness#chroniclife#patientexperience#advocacy

I have some super exciting news to share! 🤗(imaginary drum roll 🥁 please...) I am SO EXCITED to be bringing the #official Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class to CLEVELAND! If you love @ebbirth and are expecting, or work with pregnant families, you will definitely want to check out this awesome childbirth class. It is a hybrid course that meets in-person and online, which is amazing, because I'm sure you're a busy 🐝 just like me. The first Cleveland cohort of the Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class will begin on March 3, 2019. If you would like a sneak peak of the class or the opportunity to register early, check out the link in my bio and DM me for the password to get exclusive #earlybird access. If you live in greater northeast #ohio and are interested in this class, #getinonthis , as Cleveland Natural Birth is the ONLY place you can access this program locally, and this class WILL SELL OUT! If you live outside the region, make sure to head over to @ebbirth to see if there is an Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class happening near you. More info will be rolling out really soon! 💗🤰🏽#peaceonearthbeginswithbirth#evidencebasedbirth#advocacy#empowerment#birthisthebestpart
@buildchangeintl is SUCH an amazing nonprofit. They save lives during hurricanes and earthquakes by helping folks strengthen their homes before disaster strikes, rather than what everyone else does—rebuilding after lives have already been lost and homes have already been destroyed. It was an honor to help them design a professional pitch deck as they prepare to seek funding to expand their program in The Philippines and start an investment fund. Thank you so much for this opportunity to help change and save lives! This is why I do creative work. (Also, thanks to @sarahrosecoheand @presentenseco for the referral!)
I snapped this in July 1998 during a minor league baseball game in Maryland.
And it has stayed with me since (its on one of my nightstands). And I post it today to identify, recognize, & salute people in #music#arts for profit & non-profit #business#health#wellness and #advocacy who give new meaning to standing up, showing up, and levelling up.
If you know them and what they do, awesome.
If you don't, check them out.
Tag who you recognize as one of the #mavericks#machers makers of #miracles
We're always creating new communities & tribes. Let's turn that up for 2019.
CHAT: Community Homelessness Advocacy Team update!
Since we started in mid-October we've connected with 18 folks sleeping outside in the Quinte region. We're continuing to connect with people in the community and have been able to provide ongoing support to some. We've been re-stocking the Youthab give and take tree- a tree with items free to anyone who needs them. We've added some harm reduction kits from the Health Unit to our repertoire to help reduce the risk for folks engaged in i.v substance use. We're so grateful for the community support for this initiative and are eager to continue to watch CHAT grow. Stay warm and be kind, everyone.
“To me there is no picture so beautiful as smiling, bright-eyed, happy children; no music so sweet as their clear and ringing laughter”
These are the children of Tagbanua Tribe in Palawan... we came back here to empower and inspire them, yet they empower me more with their smiles,their dreams and their hopes.... To You my God be the Glory ❣️🙏🏻💕 #MissionEmpowerPhilippines 🇵🇭🇺🇸#EmpowerPhilippines 🇵🇭🇺🇸 #PEM4EmpowerPhilippines#PEM#Advocacy 😘
Wanting to be healthy is simple... but understanding all the differences between health insurance providers, plans and coverage options to keep you that way can get really complicated. Providence-based Luminous Agency takes the scare out of finding healthcare coverage in their campaign for HealthSource RI. With approachable illustrations, simple messaging and a whimsical tone (that works in 2 languages!), the branding campaign focuses on HealthSource RI's unique value proposition and presents HealthSource RI as the clear choice for affordable health insurance in Rhode Island.
@luminousagency created custom illustrations, display ads, print ads, social ads, animations and more for HealthSource RI in partnership with Advocacy Solutions. Read more about it: www.luminous.agency/healthsource-ri
