Stealing kisses from you is my favorite pastime 💋
I'm so thankful to live in a place where I can openly kiss my wife. Growing up I didn't live around an active LGBTQ community, I went to Catholic school, never heard of pride parades and never met any openly gay people until I was older. -
It's crazy how different people's upbringing can affect their coming out process. I am so thankful that even though I didn't grow up around an active LGBTQ community that I was still accepted by everyone when I came out. But I know that's not the same for everyone.. and unfortunately your geographic location can have a lot to do with it... -
Where you chose to live as an LGBTQ person is 👏🏼 so 👏🏼 important 👏🏼 We chose to live in Maine for more reasons than the beautiful ocean. We have more rights in this state than other states and I think it's really important people realize that. LGBTQ people are still not treated equal in a lot of states. Make sure you do your research and learn what rights you have where you live 🏳️🌈 -
You can find how what rights you have by visiting hrc.org/state-maps @humanrightscampaign .

This is why we vote. This is why we speak up. And this is why we don’t give up. Progress in a democracy can be slow and an uphill battle. We acknowledge, appreciate, and celebrate the wins for just a moment, then we put our heads down and go back to doing the work. This is a step in the right direction.

In his latest rebuke of the Trump administration, Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a bill Friday that bans private prisons and immigrant detention facilities from operating in California.
AB 32 will prevent the state from entering into or renewing contracts with for-profit prison companies after Jan. 1, 2020, and phase out such facilities by 2028. The bill earned final approval from the Assembly on Sept. 11 by a vote of 65-11, a day after it cleared the Senate.
The move, hailed as a major victory by advocates for criminal justice reform and immigrant rights, lets Newsom fulfill a promise to “end the outrage that is private prisons in the state of California once and for all.” Private prisons are a multibillion-dollar industry in the U.S. and are currently operating in 27 states. While they hold less than 9% of all state and federal prisoners, the vast majority of immigrants detained for deportation are held in for-profit facilities.
The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation contracts with the Florida-based GEO Group to run four private prisons in Kern and San Bernardino counties that can hold up to 2,400 inmates. Those contracts will expire by June 2023 and can’t be renewed or extended under the new law except to comply with a court-ordered population cap to reduce overcrowding in public facilities.

Coercion is NOT consent.
(Reread that x2)
(Say it out loud)
(Know and understand it on a core level)
Coercion: the practice of persuading someone to do something by using force or threats. To pressure, intimidate or force someone into doing something.
Informed Consent: agreement or permission to do something from someone who has been given full information about the possible effects or results.
Take a moment to know and understand the difference between COERCION and CONSENT.
If you are a patient, we invite you to demand Informed Consent when it comes to your care and nothing less.
If you are a medical professional, we invite you to honor the importance of Informed Consent in medical practice and to honor patient autonomy.
Coercion has no place in the way we practice medicine and care for patients. In fact, we believe the use of coercion has created and continues to perpetuate a culture of mistrust in the medical community.
We sincerely apologize if you’ve experienced coercion in a medical setting and are here to create change.
Tag a nurse/medical provider who is a champion and proponent of Informed Consent 💛
Flashback to last year’s #KnowYourRights youth summit! One of the 10 Points of #KYR is “You Have The Right To Be Courageous”. Last year, we talked about power, identity, society and culture. We dreamt about a world where justice and freedom are real. We painted our own protest posters and “campaign ads”. Because liberation begins at imagination. We can’t wait to bring the summit back this year on 12/14. Free and open to youth in 4-12th grades or ages 9-18. Register at tinyurl.com/kyrtacoma or at the link in our bio by 12/1! #Tacoma#KYR2019#KYRTacoma19

Final Step – Once the incident has been documented it now time to allow the third parties eg. Insurance companies/police to take over if there are claims pending or if further action is required.
We advise you to allow your insurance company to do the talking on your behalf as they are professionals in this particular industry and should understand and know the laws regarding your incident.
If an insurance company calls you and you have the means to have a lawyer speak on your behalf we do encourage this as insurance companies main purpose is to place fault.
If you do not have the means you are entitled to ask for the recordings of your phone call and/or not have your phone call recorded.
We advise that you do not say “sorry” but keep a factual time line of the events – so have your pictures and notes ready from the incident. Emotive language can be an admit ion of fault. You are also entitled to ask the insurance company to clarify any terms/laws/conditions/language if you are unsure.
We hope that none of our riding community ever has to go through this, but if it does happen we just hope you now have more information to assist you during a difficult time.
Have a beautiful weekend and ride safe!
In most cases, for an officer to be able to perform a search on private property (such as your vehicle), they need to acquire a lawful warrant. That being said, if the officer has probable cause to believe that a crime is being committed, then they can perform a search without a warrant. Be aware that probable cause can relate to even the most minor of traffic infractions, including failing to signal a lane change, or even driving with a broken taillight.

This officer was determined to take them down...for no reason.
Two cousins were shopping for their kids, all the while being watched and followed by a security officer. He repeatedly asked for their IDs, despite them not having committed any crime. This cop def doesn't understand how the law works!
Another officer arrived on the scene and confirmed that there was no "reasonable suspicion," and the cousins couldn't be held. The disgraced security cop was relieved of duty, for lack of proper protocol.
Thanks to the internet, a power trip like this can be brought to light, and real justice can be served! ....
