Why is this not taught universally.
Day 1 of the Week of Defiance in Austin, TX. We came together in front of Rick Perry’s mansion at 4pm and assembled our installation of the images of women who died from illegal abortions, along with coat hangers with messages from people all over the country who do not want to see women slammed back.
This installation needs to grow daily, because it is the case that most people in this country do not want to see women forced to bear children against their will, and so we need these stories to pour forward, so others know they are not alone, so we can break the silence, shatter the stigma, and so that we can build up the strength to stop these attacks and defeat this war on women.
if your first reaction, upon hearing the statistic that empty houses in america vastly outnumber homeless people, is to say “well you can’t just give people homes, the housing market would collapse” i’m gonna need you to take one giant step back and figure out why you value money and unsustainable economy over basic human rights
Never Forget Them
