Dress dark project day 271-
Keeping your word
Don’t mean a thing
All your friends turn in to enemies
How could you be grounded?
The hate in your heart
Everybody can see
Your head is hollow, man
You ain't fit to lead
Let's stand up and be counted-@coldwarkids "Locker Room Talk"

A few months ago I got it inside my head that I was going to go to North Africa. I was going travel to the Tindouf refugee camps in Algeria, the oldest continuous refugee situation on the planet, where the Sahrawi people of Western Sahara have lived in exile since the 1970s, and create a campaign that could open the hearts and minds of my fellows to the huge issues that we face as a human race. These are obstacles we must face together, we all share one planet, and we must love each other. Over the last few months I’ve done more research than I ever have before, I’ve called more people, and emailed more people, than I ever thought I’d be able to do. I can’t explain how many times I felt like what I was hoping to do was impossible. How could I, a formerly incarcerated and recovering drug addict, put together a humanitarian mission to a refugee camp in the middle of the Sahara desert, on the other side of world. It felt unreal. Well today, with the help of the Sahrawi representative to the United States, and the Algerian embassy, I submitted the final paperwork and logistical information for my first leg of the multi visit mission. It felt surreal, walking into an embassy and shaking hands with diplomats who have helped me every step of the way, it’s been a honor. I write this not knowing what to expect, and having no idea where the project may lead, but the truth is, I never really thought I’d make it this far. And to me, that’s already a huge achievement and victory. I am so grateful for the life I have today, filled with so many wonderful people who’ve helped me along the way. I can’t wait to see what comes next, because I’m going to keep working hard and moving forward. #nevergiveup #changetheworld #refugeeswelcome

So while I was in Jamaica, Tina Campbell said she voted for Trump and defended her support of Trump. She said she voted for Trump because of his Christian values/beliefs. WOW. Trump is NOT a Christian. I don't support Trump and I won't support Tina Campbell either. That is crazy. #Christian #TinaCampbell #MaryMary #GospelMusic #PresidentObama #NastyWoman #Politics #Resist #MLK #Melanin #MichelleObama #Feminist #Democrat #BarackObama #ImWithHer #ImStillWithHer #HillaryClinton #YesWeCan #WomensRights #Equality #Justice #CivilRights #HumanRights #BlackGirlsRock #BlackGirlMagic #BlackLivesMatter #Humanity #EqualRights #NoBanNoWall #RefugeesWelcome

Y'all already know what the responsible thing to do is. Phones come a dime a dozen. But somebody once told me Shrek is unique

The idea is “disturbance”. It disturbs me that while sharing videos and liking posts spreads awareness, is that ALL we can do?! ACTION. Even the tiniest donation, one hour of local volunteer work, makes a difference. There is so much untold crisis going on right now, for those fleeing Myanmar to the hideous conditions of relocation camps. This fight, the fleeing and heartache is so far from over. Don’t just act on what the media feeds you. Do more. #standwithrefugees

Imagine living life as a Tibetan refugee in the #USA. Leaving everything you know behind. Your home, family, friends, language, food, your monastery, your entire life. A new start, a new hope, a new life.
Where do you look for strength? Community of course, and your faith. His Holiness visits, and you travel 800 miles, save for months to see him. When you get there all of a sudden you see Americans shouting, banging drums, holding signs with an image of your spiritual leader, His Holiness hurting people, stomping on them. “Why are these people doing this? Why are these people doing this at my teachings? Why are they holding signs telling me to stop following my Dalai Lama? What problem do these privileged white people have with me and my religion? How can they be real monks and nuns and behave like this?” Imagine how deeply disturbing this would be for a Tibetan refugee. Most of these people screaming at their teachings and gatherings are from a New Religious Movement called the New Kadampa Tradition aka Kadampa Buddhism aka Modern Buddhism. They’re mainly white, mainly middle class, definitely privileged to be citizens of the USA or EU or UK. Imagine the hurt, then ask yourself if that’s something you’d like to join in and do. Would you do this to Tibetan refugees regardless of why it is these people do it? Where do you draw the line? Keep that in mind when you see adverts for “meditation classes.” This is where they recruit new people. In short, Buddhist cults DO EXIST. They’re bizarre, harmful, and they sucker people in all the time under the guise of Buddhism. Does this look like Buddhism?! #kadampa #kelsanggyatso #meditateinmexico #kadampabuddhism #nkt #buddhism #meditation #mindfulness #zen #yoga #tibet #tibetans #refugees #refugeeswelcome #catskills #sagharbor #meditateinhouston #meditateinlondon #meditateinmelbourne

A witty, smart, and heartfelt talk by Rebecca Heller of the International Refugee Assistance Project.
Heller and IRAP led the charge against the travel ban, organizing legal support for those stranded and detained in airports in January and taking the administration to court in the case of IRAP v. Trump, which just yesterday resulted in a restraining order on the third version of the ban.

Her advice on how to help: pick something you really care about and stick with it. "For the love of God, do not get distracted by shiny objects. Pick a lane and just drive." #RefugeesWelcome #welcometoithaca #refugees #NoBanNoWall #Ithaca

This mural project has always been about us all coming together to contribute our time and our energy to build and create something great and beautiful. As I get closer to being able to see the end in sight I just wanted to thank EVERYONE who is part of this project, from the security guards, the volunteer painters, all my school partnerships across the world, @nospanglish who keeps us laughing everyday, the community who cheer us on, @usaforunhcr for partnering to be part of this project, @downtownnyc for making it all possible and envisioning a place that could be made brighter by some paint creativity and heart.

“Knowledge is the only thing that can not be taken away from us.” ADRA Serbia, in partnership with Swiss Solidarity, runs a vocational school for refugees, including unaccompanied minors from Afghanistan. The auto mechanic skills these boys are learning will open up new opportunities for them.
