Elders


The New Freedom Ride...Against GentriFUKation

We stood strong youth and elders together walking, calling, singing manifesting spirit. The spirit of our African ancestors, our indigenous ancestors, our Freedom Riders, Our Freedom walkers, into the hallowed, marbled floors of City Hall to save another Black family from forced Out Migration.

Ellis Act Evicted Tenants Meet with the District Attorney–The Elder Abuse Crime of Ellis Act Evictions Part 3

They were posted up at every cubicle. Threatening, over-muscled, green beret-like necks bulging with implied violence. Police officers, swat team members?
