Please support and share this ambitious plan by several grassroots #MutualAid and economic and #RacialJustice groups in Birmingham, AL to transform an abandoned elementary school in the historic Smithfield neighborhood into a mutual aid and community resource center
Smithfield is a majority Black and poor neighborhood in Birmingham with deep ties to the civil rights movement. The former home of Angela Davis is in Smithfield, and parts of the area gained the nickname "Dynamite Hill" due to repeated bombings by the KKK, after segregation laws in the area were overturned allowing Black people to begin moving into the neighborhood
If this plan is rejected, the school will instead be sold to land developers and contribute to further gentrification of the area. Please raise awareness and help support this awesome project to empower this historic community

@lrvick @alcinnz This is a great thread. I realize that #Signal isn’t a saviour, just like previous centralized services aren’t. I think of it instead as a manageable “jump” away from the likes of Facebook and company for people scared to leave.
One step closer, hopefully, toward becoming familiar and comfortable with using decentralized services.

Read more about it on our blog (and please share 😉) https://framablog.org/2021/01/07/peertube-v3-its-a-live-a-liiiiive/
I encourage everyone to upload media to Wikipedia and help different articles.
Nobody anticipated the world to not be the same anymore. Best we capture the lives we live today and save it for the future.
Not about the politics:
I used to live in DC, while homeless, and there were frequent curfews due to political unrest.
This often led to homeless people who had nothing to do with the situation getting detained and harassed. This group is probably going to be doing a lot of work for the DC homeless community.
Please consider giving them some money. Thank you
