Doctor’s, Julia Hare and Nathan Hare, noted authors, psychologists and executive directors of San Francisco’s the Black Think Tank need our full support.
There has been no public announcement and many of you are not aware that Dr. Julia Hare has been living with Alzheimer’s for several years and was diagnosed with the End Stage of the condition during the Christmas/Kwanzaa holidays.
Her health providers refused to treat her on an outpatient basis without confinement. Although most of her medical costs are now being paid by her health insurance company, and the cost of caregivers is staggering which is why her husband, Dr. Nathan Hare has set up a Go-Fund-Me page to help with the cost of her care.
After being on the forefront of the empowerment of the Black Family Unit, relationships and activism for so many years, they have definitely had an impact on my life, so it’s imperative that I give back to those who have given me so much to me through their activism and vision.
You can help support Dr. Hare’s costly care by donating here.

We didn’t know that our activism and our peaceful displays would result in guns literally looking down our eyes. Literally looking down our eyes. Guns.
And I had young people who were willing to die. For justice.
I had a young person — and he’s definitely the example of many young people that I represent who said "I didn’t think I would make it to twenty-one years old so I’m ready to die now. Let’s do it now."
State senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal (@MariaChappelleN) speaks on the Senate floor about the events she witnessed in Ferguson, Missouri in the weeks following the execution of Mike Brown. Senator Chappelle-Nadal was one of many protesters tear gassed for three hours without reprieve by the Ferguson PD.
She has been consistent and unrelenting in her criticism of Governor Jay Nixon — to the point of tweeting him “FUCK you, Governor!” — for his lack of action over the violation of citizens’ constitutional right to peacefully protest, and passionately vocal about the violent ways in which protesters were abused by the police.

Fun fact: Canada launched the “Don’t Be That Guy” rape prevention campaign targeted at potential rapists rather than potential victims was launched… and the number of reported sexual assaults fell by 10 per cent. within that year. Rape prevention NEEDS to start with education and focus on the perpetrators, not just policing the behavior of potential victims.

Very useful to know, pass and share please.
I don’t mean to impose a personal favour on you guys, but I really would like to ask that everyone who follows me reblog this.
I don’t think I made it very clear but last month I was sexually assaulted by someone who I thought was my friend (I don’t want to talk about it don’t ask), and it’s… really fucked with my head.
Had I known this a month ago I would have been able to get away.
So, essentially, I’m really pleading with you to reblog this so everyone who follows you doesn’t get stuck in the same position I was with no way out.
I mean again I don’t want the point of this to be my sob story or whatever but if you could reblog this it would seriously mean a lot
