55 years ago today, August 28, 1963 in WA DC:

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”—Martin Luther King jr

63 years ago today on August 28, 1955, 14 year old Emmett Till was kidnapped in the middle of night in Mississippi, brutally beaten, murdered & thrown in a river for cat-calling a white woman at a corner store. His killers were acquitted in less than 1 hour.

In 2016, the woman who accused Emmett Till said she had lied in her statements, in court, under oath.

52 years later a sign was placed on the spot where Emmett Till’s body was found. It’s been replaced 3 times since for vandalism.

Racism is heavily prevalent & emboldened under this POTUS*

The same systems that allow the disease of racism to be spread under the guise of “free speech” are the same systems that allowed Dr. King & Emmett Till to be murdered.

#BlackLivesMatter
Martin Luther King jr. and Emmett Till mark why today, August 28th is a day for remembrance in the Civil Rights movement.

With tragic events like Charlottesville, it’s a fact that work toward justice and equality is in its infancy and remains unfinished.

As the govt continues to ignore the crisis in Puerto Rico after #Maria, I urge those affected to prepare for #Florence

It’s a Cat 4-5 & flooding is predicted.

Here’s how to prepare & what to do if you run out of bottled water after.

Please RT this thread— it could save a life.

First—listen to your state & local news. EVACUATE if you’re mandated. Don’t leave your pets behind.

I worked on the rescue efforts after Harvey & Irma. I spoke to people on dying phones who didn’t evacuate. They required rescue from rooftops.
#Florence

If you’re not mandated to evacuate for #HurricaneFlorence, see @NOAA’s list of numbers and supplies you‘ll need
👉nhc.noaa.gov/prepare/ready.…

@Firechatapp is a web app & works when cell towers go down between phones.

Prepare & have 1 gallon/day water supply for 7 days minimum.

I’m a runner. Mollie Tibbett’s story terrifies me.

Running is such an integral part of me: it’s my passion, it’s empowering & a Huge part of my self care these days
The fact that it’s being politicized loses the lesson: it’s NOT who murdered her, it’s the WHY.

Although men empathize, they’ll never know the ways women/victims must think to protect themselves:

🔹Empty parking lots & elevators after hours
🔹At some places of employment, we need after hour escorts to our cars or the bus
🔹It’s a big reason why we use restrooms in packs
3/
Some safety tips I’ve had to adopt to go on a simple run:

🔹I Never run in the same place from one week to the next, or the same time of day– I mix it up
🔹I Never wear my long hair in a ponytail - too easy to grab
🔹My dog comes with me on all runs– so dogs must be allowed

For 2 years,Trump has called Russian interference a hoax & its investigation a witch hunt.
He eliminated the National Security coordinator position at the NSC.

Russia’s attack was an act of war but Trump& regime attended the NSC election security meeting for less than 30 minutes
Trump admin has no strategy for election security, & no one's in charge
👉nbcnews.com/news/amp/ncna8…

Despite Russian interference and $380M in federal aid
🔹22 states opted out of upgrading voting machines
🔹42 states won’t have new voting equipment by Nov
👉politico.com/story/2018/07/…
Here’s what we can do:

Call your SOS:
🔹Hold them accountable for your state’s election security

Call your reps📲202-224-3121
Ask they pass:
🔹the bipartisan #DETERAct bill for midterms
🔹the #PAVEAct which calls for paper ballots & risk limited audits

Everyday as news comes out that supports the fact that we had a fraudulent election & have an #IllegitimatePresident, the MSM keeps pushing 1 thing: Votes weren’t changed.

This is NOT true.

The votes of MILLIONS were changed bc they were thrown off Russian hacked voter rolls.
The WH is now censoring the free press. They posted a fake version of the #TreasonSummit video & deleted where Putin said he wanted Trump to win & he helped.

The evidence is overwhelming: we have an #IllegitimatePresident installed by Putin & Russia.

👉
Midterms are already actively being hacked by Russia.

We must Demand Congress restore our democratic elections.

If we can mobilize in hours Trump potentially firing Mueller, we can organize an ongoing protest every evening & weekends in every major city.

🔹Military
🔹Elections
🔹Utilities
🔹Nuclear plants
🔹Power grids
🔹Aviation

One year ago, @Reince tweeted that the GOP had “a revolutionary data program” resulting in them “carrying WI for first time in 30 years.”

Attached was this article that said these “Data Operations” helped Trump win WI & will used for the 2018 midterms.

👉host.madison.com/ct/news/local/…
Trump won* WI by just 22,748 votes.

200,000+ in WI were unable to vote in 2016.

Along with MI & PA, WI was one of the 3 swing states that gave* the EC to Trump by a scant 78,652 votes.

All 3 States were among the 39 states reported as hacked by Russia.

Exit polls are a scientifically proven litmus test. In 2016, they were off by as high as 10%

Anything above ~2.5% indicates suspect anomalies. It triggers other countries to nullify elections.

In the swing states of MI, PA, & WI—all were all above 3%.
