Quoted @JAMAiwuyor

Harvard Kennedy School and @MoveOn did a content analysis of 534,000 #ADOS tweets. They found that ADOS founders Yvette Carnell and Antonio Moore used breaking news cycles to manipulate online discussions & move Black communities towards adopting a right-wing agenda.

Critique & accountability is central to the civic process.

My chosen political home critiques my profession endlessly *&* has expanded my ability to be accountable - that is valuable!

But fear of being misunderstood kept me from nuance in 2020 & that’s not coming into my 2021.

When I sat at my altar this morning my spirit said: “you’ve worked too hard to need to prove anything today through cynicism”

Bowing to myself and all of you.
Hope is a discipline 💛

Hundreds of thousands of people didn’t survive the Trump Administration.

We can’t ever forget the sacrifice we make when we aren’t in solidarity with each other’s right to live.

Never again.

With 45 preparing to give a speech the morning of the inauguration, our job is important & simple: ignore it.

Tomorrow is the day we say goodbye to him being the center of the world.

Tomorrow is finally about the rest of us eagerly awaiting new possibilities.

A #BREATHEact win for IL was informed by @ChicagoEat and many other local organizers.

The bill abolishes monetary bail, bans police departments from purchasing military equipment, and adds new decertification guidelines, to name a few things.

Today, there are no Black women in the U.S. Senate because our nation’s second-ever Black woman senator is now becoming our first-ever Black woman VP.

Black women shouldn't have to sacrifice our representation at one table to have a seat at another. Elect more Black women.

With support from Movement historian @devarashida & the brilliant editing of @JenParker393 - my first @nytimes byline.

This piece is a culmination of 5 focused yrs of unlearning, accountability & losing to win the lessons. I‘d love to hear your thoughts.
