Needed some inspiration, so I compiled some new beats. Check it.

“This is my rebellion. This is my outrage. This is the beginning of our radical thinking and action.”
READ. SHARE. ACT.
The time is now to stop the violence.
"We are connected through our grief and our collective resistance to this terror which targets our relations. We are linked through our sense of urgency to stop this violence from continuing and to change the society in which this terror is normalized."
Last week we learned that Loretta Saunders, an Inuk student from Labrador, had been murdered. In her death, our sister joins a long and growing list of Indigenous women and girls who have been, and continue to be, killed or disappeared across Turtle Island. Our hearts are heavy, filled with both grief and outrage at this unrelenting colonial violence against our people. And we have to draw the line. The violence must stop. In this spirit, we will be running a series of posts, from a range of voices, that address this crisis and declare: #ItEndsHere. We are committed to eliminating all forms of violence within Indigenous communities, including violence based on gender and sexual identity (sexual orientation). And we cannot allow this to continue. Please join us in making this commitment and in working through how we can respond as a community to bring justice to those who have been taken from us, and to hold those who perpetrate violence against us accountable. In peace, friendship and solidarity.
DECOLONIZE THE VIOLENCE. #ItEndsHere
As part of our effort to address the crisis of violence against Indigenous women and girls, our series of posts will run daily for the next two weeks. Join us as we share our voices in declaring that #ItEndsHere.
