Did You Know? Before Uber or Lyft, SNCC developed a system of shared rides for organizers in the South called the Sojourner Motor Fleet.

So, like, @aryehlou is the real deal, wherein "knowing Torah" and "walking the walk in justice activism" are both deep & intertwined. If you're in Chicago, this is an amazing opportunity to learn with and from him, and to grow the progressive Jewish social justice ecosystem:

THREAD. We are at emergency levels. Gov DeSantis is crashing through practices, standards & regimes designed to maintain the provision of secular, public education by professionally licensed educators. This is a direct assault on a fundamental building block of healthy democracy.
.@GovDeSantis on recruiting veterans to the teaching field: "Our veterans have a wealth of knowledge and experience they can bring to bear in the classroom. [...] For too long, the requirements to be a teacher have been too rigid." trib.al/1bPu78k

Elvis Presley died 45 years ago today. In honor of that, I present to you the music he appropriated, did worse, and never credited.

Not mature enough for an abortion but mature enough to endure being forced by the state to carry a baby to term. To, presumably, parent. (Though, of course: that domestic supply of infants.)
A Florida court has denied a parentless 16-year-old permission to have an abortion because she's not "mature" enough. Previously, they denied a 17-year-old an abortion because her GPA was too low. The state is forcing these teens to give birth. jezebel.com/florida-court-de…

TW: another horrible story from a country that has taken our right to abortion access. . . . . . . . . . .
Extremely dark abortion news is just pouring out today. Now a Louisiana woman says she's being forced to either carry a fetus to term that is missing its skull and part of its head, or travel to Florida for the nearest legal abortion. jezebel.com/louisiana-woman-…

A truly shocking development. When workers are paid better and have to spend less time and energy wondering how they're gonna get by, they're happier and perform better at work, and other parts of their lives too! Hope to see this groundbreaking finding catch on! #RaiseTheWage
Walmart says paying their workers higher wages is paying off. After giving an hourly wage raise to 565,000 workers last fall, "we've seen labor productivity metrics improve" across stores and warehouses, Walmart's CFO said on the firm's earnings call today.

The interim DA is halting even the Restorative Justice program, which centers repairing the harm to victims. SMH. 😡😤😡
Restorative Justice has been found to be more effective at repairing harms done than the carceral system. Whether halting this program is an attempt to rebrand or to possibly water it down, @BrookeJenkinsSF decision is harmful and counterproductive. sfgate.com/politics/article/…

Every time I post about justice, inclusion or equality through the lens of Jesus, angry people comment that I only do it for the money. But I’ve actually lost quite a bit for speaking out. So let me tell y’all how money actually works in white evangelicalism. a (long) thread…
