iPhone : Let’s make our voices heard! Don’t be timid about using words like “abolish” to push back against the “community policing” and community/police “relationship building” language in this city survey. twitter.com/herbjwesson/st…

Twitter Web App : Good morning early risers!
I get to be in conversation with Dominique DiPrima on 102.3FM Dominique DiPrima about #MikeBrown #MitriceRichardson #EzellFord and all things #BlackLivesMatter at about 5:10AM. Please tune in and be ready to call in at 310-520-5554. @blmla

iPhone : .Melina Abdullah likened the campaign for a state law mandating #ethnicstudies to the civil rights fight against segregation: “We didn’t ask Woolworth’s to desegregate their own lunch counter. We needed government intervention.” chronicle.com/article/in-cal…

iPhone : Melina Abdullah As an Asian American activist based in LA, I support #DrAbdullah4Dean !

Also I want to affirm that it is NOT "anti-Asian" to say that Stewart Kwoh is not qualified for this role.

It IS Anti-Black for non-Black POC's to ignore community calls for Black leadership!

iPhone : I respect Stewart Kwoh’s work as a lawyer & social justice advocate. However, AUTHENTIC #EthnicStudies has subject area, pedagogical and epistemological adherences.
It is disrespectful for Cal State LA to appoint someone with no grounding. #DrAbdullah4Dean #FreedomCampus

iPhone : The vision for the future of #publicsafety in #LosAngeles must be inclusive of everyone. Share your opinion on #policing in L.A. by completing this survey commissioned by the L.A. City Council as they move forward in reshaping public safety in our city. docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAI…

iPhone : The fourth grade "mission" project, a long tradition in LA schools called to task by Melina Abdullah with a conversation with a teacher about shifting the focus to indigenous perspective. We don't just want ethnic studies we demand ethnic studies that amplifies marginalized people.
