The Meaning of Self-Advocacy

thinkingautismguide.com/2019/0

"Self-advocacy is fundamentally about true equality, respect, and power, and about recognizing and changing the current imbalances in all of those things. Whether it is going through the legal system to close an institution, fighting back physically against intolerable surroundings, talking back to staff, sabotaging the power of staff over the lives of disabled people, being listened to when we communicate in non-standard ways, learning that it's okay to have a voice and make decisions, or passively resisting the dominance of others over our lives, real self-advocacy will always upset the status quo in some way."

If you are so inclined, tomorrow in the midst of your Valentine’s Day, please spare a moment to think about, pray for, or do-whatever-you’d-do, for the 17 families who lost a child or loved one last year at the Stoneman Douglas shooting. I live in this community. I work in its school system. A former student of mine is a teacher who hid children in her room for hours. The world moves on, and yet it doesn’t. I can’t begin to imagine what the world is like for people who lost family that day.88?

I've had a terrible headache for more than 10 days--it wakes me up at night, and is there in the morning. I've tried everything: cutting caffeine, OTC meds, prescription migraine meds, and nothing had any effect.

Last night, I ate one low does cannabis edible before bed. This morning, my head is clear and pain free.

WHY DOES THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT STILL TREAT CANNABIS LIKE A DANGEROUS DRUG?

Honest question fam...Is it possible to be undergoing both and of one’s faith simultaneously?

For the tour stop in Atlanta, I’m thinking of using this image to make myself a concert tee featuring the legendary band “Abraham’s Bosom”. What say you @mike

Can we all just agree that @vishnu 's laugh is one of the greatest things in the world? 😂

In preparation for my toot, I created a spotify playlist with ALL albums...put it on shuffle and “Rescue” came on first immediately followed by “Body & Blood” This is going to be a strange trip to the @vishnu

I am sharing this pics of this email from Gungor in the event anyone needs additional encouragement to attend one of the “End of the World” tour stops. See you in Atlanta @vishnu

I feel like people saying I hate white people because I confront white supremacy would be like saying I hate urinals because I tell people not to pee on the floor.

I am not ashamed of being a white person, and frankly, I find it absurd when people accuse me of being ashamed of being white.

I don't hate white people. I am a white person.

I'm a white person who wants to tear down white supremacy. I am a white person who sees and understands the problems whiteness create in our culture and our ecology.

This is not complicated.
