I’m on the 🚂 to philly heading to the sentencing of the most infamous rapist of all time Bill #Cosby.

We are hoping to see this criminal walk out in shackles for his 45year+ depraved crime spree of drugging and raping over 60 women.

Watch this space for pics and updates!
#SentenceCosby30years

Graphics by @FrancescaRizzo Part of a 4 year digital campaign to raise awareness of the names of the human victims of #Cosby’s 45 year drug and rape crime spree.
No one knows all of these survivors’ names.

They aren’t famous, they didn’t “cash in”
By being raped.

Dear not alive during #AnitaHill:

Those hearings terrorized us as we sat transfixed, knowing for a fact we would not be believed

or given a fair chance to tell our stories of rape and harassment

In America or in front of the United States Senate.

#NoBiden
#metoo
#KavanaughConfirmation and his fascist Theocrat cronies Grassley and Orrin Hatch simply following the crucifixion of Anita Hill model of Trotting out dude after dude who told us that Clarence Thomas “wasn’t” a porn addicted rapist. #longDongSilver
During the Anita Hill hearings a sharp line emerged between women who had been raped and harassed

and those who hadn’t yet reconciled and named their experiences.

Women in denial called Anita a bitch.

The rest of us wore buttons

because her story was our story.

Door knocking matters.

I lived in Florida when walkin’ Lawton Chiles was a representative and then governor of our state.

Chiles was famous for walking first his entire district when he ran for his house seat and then won.

Chile’s Met voters door-to-door, town to town/1
Walkin’ Lawton m@et the people where they were.

Walkin’ Lawton was sneered at for his “no chance” Democrat pro civil rights campaign and for being a “redneck”

Walkin’ Lawton just kept walking and converting red voters blue with each step.
Walkin’ Lawton got it that connecting with voters in person is the way to build a coalition.

🛑 👂 to voter concerns, hear problems repeated then seize on solutions based messages.

Often voters are experts on their one issue.

If you are a wise candidate or canvasser you 🛑 👂

My Adoption advice for lesbians: Hurry up. Fascist theocrats are attempting to take away our adoption rights.
“federal legislation could be on the way. In July 2018, Republican representatives introduced a bill that would protect adoption agencies with state or federal contracts who discriminate on religious or moral grounds nationwide. “
The fight over gay adoption parallels the fight over marriage. Republicans have long fought our right to adopt and have “legitimate “ families. Marriage and adoption to them made us “normal” so they fought it with a passion. #queerpol
