So proud to see @JewishCurrents win 15 awards from the American Jewish Press Association. @jacobthehutt and I won second place in investigative journalism for our look at the ADL. I also won "honorable mention" for my breaking news reporting on Sen. Sanders, Iron Dome and Gaza.

Today marks exactly one month since a white supremacist terrorist murdered 10 Black people at a market in Buffalo. Here is a 🧵 of Black-led orgs that have been on the ground supporting East Side residents since May 14th. They could really use your financial support today!👇🏿

You actually do need to stop and read this. SF is sitting on some of the most toxic soil on earth, it's been killing the people who live on it for decades, and with the anticipated sea level rise, that poison won't remain concentrated where you're comfortable ignoring it.
Replying to @jfagone
The grand jury report on Hunters Point and climate-change risks is really worth reading. Unlike the Navy's Superfund documents, which are technical and long, this report is actually written for human beings. And it's concise. civilgrandjury.sfgov.org/202…
