Help me reach my goal! Fundraising for my #midwifery training...support #afrolatina #midwives!

ynannarising:

Community, I am in need of everyone’s assistance. I need to raise the rest of the money to pay for my tuition and living expenses by the end of my 2nd quarter in mid-March. I will not be able to finish the last 6 months of my midwifery program or come home to the east coast as a licensed midwife without your help. Please donate if you can. Sharing with your networks, sending me a private message with resources or any other strategy you can come up with is very appreciate. Please help contribute to adding another midwife of color to our community. Thank you.

This is how you handle getting your privileged called out. 

Not “reverse racism!” Not “heterophobe!” and all those other dynamics that don’t exist. Just recognition. Recognition of privilege (and hopefully continuous self-checking)

Of course I’ll hurt you. Of course you’ll hurt me. Of course we will hurt each other. But this is the very condition of existence. To become spring, means accepting the risk of winter. To become presence, means accepting the risk of absence.

Women Prisoners Sterilized To Cut Welfare Costs In California
"Prison doctors have sterilized over 150 women. Why? They don’t want to have to provide welfare funding for any children they may have in the future. Although such procedures may seem harsh, they are not illegal. The Supreme Court ruled in 1927 that women can be forcibly sterilized in jail in Buck vs Bell. Writing for the majority, Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. said, “Three generations of imbeciles are enough.”
