Y'all we have raised over 20K in bail money for detained migrants. Tomorrow, we're going bump that number even higher. Y'all are beautiful. There's no better response to Trump's jingoistic BS than to be too busy getting folks free to pay attention.

We're at $19,698. Hell yeah. Until we demolish the detention centers, cash bail and the prison industrial complex, let's bail some folks out.

With that said, we are continuously having conversations about what using these words means for reaching the most under-represented of our communities, specifically low-income, trans, and communities of color

We choose the word “dyke” as a POLITICIZED, empowering, and reclaimed word. Dyke does not belong to any specific gender nor is it attached to genitalia

Fun fact: there are a bunch of Dyke Marches all over the country and each chapter has its own vision, politics, membership, etc. Chicago’s collective is made up of queer and trans BIPOC only and we do this work specifically for our people ✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿

The situation has gotten as bad as its been a night. Police charged into the parking lot and started hitting people. Two officers smacked my phone out of my hand and shoved me to the ground. Don't know how many arrests, but at least a dozen from what I could see.

Police rushed barracades and started beating protestors with batons. One of our own was arrested. Police are violently occupying Jeffery Plaza and assaulting our people. They ran full force at us. We can't leave until we get our people.

The man killed by police was named Tommy, but he went by "Snoop," per people at the scene. The woman pictured here, Gloria Rainge, says Snoop has been her barber for five years. She watched him get shot. "He was cool, laid back, very intelligent."
