Posted @withregram • @blm_van BLM Vancouver is taking the streets on June 25th (4pm – 8pm) to put pressure on city council to action our demands. ✊🏽 Our demands have not been met! We did not ask for denial, obstruction or justifications. We have asked for justice, accountability and transformation. You have made the streets unsafe for us and we will take them back as often as is necessary until Black liberation and Indigenous sovereignty are realised and every single one of us can feel safe and secure on this land.
There’s never a better time to get free than now. We will have a rally with some speeches, a march and wrap up with some performances by incredible Black and Indigenous leaders and artists. Location TBD
We will need volunteers to make this event happen! If you want to volunteer, sign up in the link in the @blm_van bio!
Originally intended to simply focus on book reviews, over time, KaliDesautelsReads has morphed into its own entity.
I write about issues that are near to my heart, be they political, feminist, motherhood, mental health, or, as the title holds, books.
A thirty-something Canadian woman in my mid-thirties, I have been "super married" to my high school sweetheart since 2006, and together we have two crazy, clever, kind, hilarious, wonderful kids.
My first book - How Not To Blog: Finding Myself, One Post at a Time is available on Amazon (in eBook formats for you clever tech readers, and paperback for those of us who love that new book smell!)
I have tried a podcast - it's still on Apple and Google Podcasts - but writing is where my heart is.
My life changed dramatically when my husband was diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer in 2018, and I am now a writer for a leading Canadian Cancer Non-Profit.
I am lucky enough to have a family that loves me and pushes me to be my best, even if it is outside of my cushiony comfort zone. I have a village of friends that nourish me, mentally, and spiritually.
Welcome to my thoughts. Sit down. Stay a while. Enjoy a cup of coffee!
