iPhone : Thank you Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez!

It was awesome chatting with you about how we can build a better world.

In Canada, things aren't perfect and we face many of the same challenges.

But, together we can do better.

My mom always taught me: When we lift each other up, we all rise.…

iPhone : corpse: i wanna hear what aoc has to say

iPhone : Grateful to all who joined us last night!

Wonderful learning from you Jagmeet Singh - thank you for reminding us that another world is not only possible, but just a few hours’ drive from NYC 😉

$200k+ raised going directly to 6 relief efforts here:……

iPhone : We did it!

$200k raised in one livestream (on a whim!) for eviction defense, food pantries, and more.

This is going to make such a difference for those who need it most right now.

Thank you all 👾💞…

iPhone : Today I’m using the stream to fundraise for local food pantries, eviction defense legal aid, & community support organizations.

So many people are having a hard time in this crisis. If you’re able, you can help direct aid here efforts here:…

iPhone : Joe Biden handily won Americans who make under $100,000.

Donald Trump handily won Americans who make $100,000 or more.

Any analysis that reduces the power of Trump to economic anxiety misses the forest for the trees.…

iPhone : And lastly, if you’ve combed through all these other options - our Team AOC shop is in the process of restocking for the holiday season.

All items are made in the USA and create living wage, dignified union jobs for people across the country 🇺🇸

iPhone : Another great gift as well is to support local journalism.

Gift a subscription (digital or physical) to a local newspaper or magazine for a reader in your life.

It’s a great way to support our democracy and independent/local journalism while gifting to others 🎁

iPhone : Please consider making contributions (or doing so in a loved ones’ name as a gift) to mutual aid funds, legal aid orgs, and grassroots community groups this season.

It will help with food need, eviction defense, etc.

Put an org you love on your wish list to encourage support!

iPhone : On the Bronx side, I ♥️ The Lit. Bar - an Afro-Latina run bookstore founded as the ONLY bookshop in the Bronx.

If you are planning on gifting new books this year, please order them from an independent bookstore!


iPhone : Here are a bunch of small businesses from #ShopSmallAstoria in my community, and they ship nationwide. They range from bookshops to zero-waste gifts for friends and family 🎁

iPhone : Today many are buying gifts or donations for the holiday season.

Right now, small businesses & food aids across the country REALLY need our help.

Let’s help & commit to shopping small this year wherever we can.
