Shoutout to our incredible partners over at @littlemanilastockton! ✨
they advocate for the historic preservation of the little manila historic site in stockton and provide 📚 education & leadership ✊🏽 to revitalize stockton's filipina/o american community.
this kind of community advocacy is what keeps ca so diverse and strong. 🌞 💪🏾
Friendly reminder that your trauma does not define you. ✨
it's mental health awareness month folks, which means your mental health comes first. just because you can take emotional pain, doesn't mean you have to! 💪🏾
Congratulations to this incredible class of young activists at @99rootz! ✊🏽 🎉 we're so inspired by your work and can't wait to see all that you accomplish in the future! 👏🏾

Happy #harveymilkday everyone! 🏳️🌈
harvey milk was an activist, organizer, politician, g*y man, and above all, human. his work in the 1970s to end discrimination against the lgbtq+ community, is still felt today. we all benefit from his legacy which is one of love, tolerance, and resilience. ✨
rest in power, harvey! and happy birthday!

"you can't judge a book by its cover and you can't judge it by its first chapter." - father greg boyle
of all the beautiful graduations we're seeing, @homeboyindustries' stories of determination and resilience are among the most powerful. 🎓
a real testament to the importance of #secondchances.
Muhlaysia booker & michelle "tamika" simone are the 4th & 5th black trans women murdered this year.
26 were murdered last year.
as pride season begins, let us remember that there would be no lgbtq movement without black trans women- who have always been on the frontlines. they have created culture and fashion, too, often without credit. and yet black trans women continue to be subjected to violence just for existing. we stand in solidarity with our trans siblings and will never stop fighting for justice and safety for them, period. rest in power, muhlaysia and tamika.

"at aaaj-lc, everyday i see how detention, deportation, evictions, wage theft and travel bans impact the physical and mental health of our clients.
aapi communities will only overcome these barriers in partnership with our brothers and sisters from other communities of color. for me health justice means immigrant rights, economic equity, and ending mass incarceration." - aarti kohli 💥 ✊🏽 ✊🏾 ✊🏿
shoutout to asian americans advancing justice law caucus's (@aaajalc ) executive director aarti kohli for her incredible work advocating for california's aapi communities!💖 💫
