#DoyenneResidency is proud to feature Julie Chavez Rodriguez, California State Director under Senator @kamalaharris, as we discuss incarceration and reform.
Previously senior policy advisor and special assistant to President Barack Obama, Julie has a focus on immigration, LBGTQ & other groups. Come curious. (Apply via link in bio )
I read this entire book on vacation in DR. #GeorgeJackson was smart, insightful, and very in tuned with the injustice of U.S. society. The book is a collection of letters he wrote while #incarcerated to his mother, father, brother, lawyer, and even #AngelaDavis. He and Davis had a deep intellectual and personal connection based on their mutual experiences being falsely accused of murder. This book is maddening to say the least. Jackson’s story is not an anomaly, but happened to reach the public’s attention - similar to the fates of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Sandra Bland and more. For every story that is garners media attention, thousands more do not. #blackhistorymonth#staywoke#blacklivesmatter#werambl#weramblwewed#hawaiilopeliving
