    URGENT: Dustin Higgs, an innocent black man on death row, is set to be executed January 15.

    His official white house petition, started December 11, only has 4,060 signatures. These petitions are required to be governmentally acknowledged if they get 100,000 signatures in 30 days.

    In short: we have 4 days until the petition closes and 8 days until he is killed.

    Please, please, PLEASE reblog this and share with as many people as you possibly can.

    NOTE: White House petitions require signature verification with a link sent via email

    URGENT! HOMELESS BY 01/30/21

    Hi tumblr! My partner and I (both they/them) have been facing tenant abuse by our landlord and are now on the verge of homelessness. We found a friend to stay with short-term, but desperately need funding for stable housing. Anything helps, and if you can’t afford to donate, every single share counts! Thank you

    I AM BEGGING YOU TO HELP SAVE DUSTIN HIGGS

    Dustin Higgs is a Maryland based artist on Death Row for a crime he did not commit -

    He was convicted and sentenced to the federal death penalty as an accomplice to the 1996 murders of Tanji Jackson, Tamika Black and Mishann Chinn. It was the first federal death sentence handed down in Maryland in the modern era.

    Dustin was not the person who actually shot the three women. Nor was he an accomplice. In fact, it was Willis Haynes who pulled the trigger, and he was sentenced to life in prison plus 45 years after a separate jury spared him the death penalty for the crime. With the resumption of federal executions in 2020, Dustin's life is at serious risk.

    He is sentenced to be excecuted on Jan 15. 2021. 3 days before MLK Day and just 5 DAYS BEFORE THE NEW FEDERAL ADMINISTRATION IS PUT IN PLACE

    “My name is Gabriel, Im 25 and ive been homeless for a year and a half. I was raised by my aunt who sold her house and left the state. Around the same time I lost my job and my first car was t-boned. I got a jeep which is my dream car because of insurance, I lived out of my jeep which stopped working a month afterwards with my dog for most of that time until I received my tax return and was finally able to get it moving again.

    After getting it fixed a friend let me stay with them. My dad and my dog died around the same time, I never knew my dad much and then I had to realize I never would. I had gotten my dog at the beginning of the year before and raised him from a puppy, he was an american akita named Xten and i miss him more than anything. He was with me the whole time i was homeless and kept me going alot of the time, i feel like i let him down honestly.

    Then I got kicked out of my friends house because of a argument, and later that night put in the hospital with a concussion and broken hand when someone came and punched me from behind at a shopping center. I lost my memory of the last few days and most of the possessions I had managed to hold on to when they left all of my things at a donation box in the rain.

    My girlfriend, her cousin, and my bestfriend managed to get a few of my things they knew were mine. My girlfriend and her cousin are both amazing people and I wouldn't have made it this long without them, especially the woman who stood beside me even when i was down.

    My bestfriend got me a job at a grocery store and I eventually managed to buy a car from his parents, the car broke down on me at an intersection and was eventually towed and I got fired from my job. The previously mentioned cousin of my girlfriend purchased me a tent, and I had been living in it and keeping my things there since I started at the job my friend had gotten me.”

    While people are inclined to whip out their phones and film when they see something alarming happening, those videos are not always recorded in a way that can be used as evidence in a legal proceeding or to support advocacy tactics.

    At the human rights organization WITNESS, where I work as the senior U.S. program coordinator, we’ve learned that video has a greater chance of making an impact when it’s filmed ethically and strategically, and released in coordination with advocacy and legal efforts. Using the camera in your pocket can be a valuable way to ensure the world bears witness to abusive policing and systemic racism, help hold authorities accountable, and advocate for the real safety of our communities.

    If you can’t donate, reblog.  Spread the word because this story isn’t the only one like this and it is disproportionately happening to POC.

    Landlords have bills to pay as well, but they should be standing shoulder to shoulder with their tenets against the larger power.  The banks are the problem and the government is backing them up instead of having the backs of the citizens that vote them into power.

    wHY DOES THIS HAVE JUST 308 NOTES???? THE ENTIRE WORLD SHOULD BE SHARING THIS. CHINA IS LITERALLY COMMITTING THE HOLOCAUST, ONLY THIS TIME ON MUSLIMS AND Y’ALL ARE SILENT?

    i have 495 people following me right now, including several mutuals. i better see y’all reblogging.

    People might not be reblogging this because the first tweet makes unnecessary (and untrue) Holocaust comparisons. Taken from @nat_slay on Twitter (I don’t know the original source):

    The “ways to help” info seems good afaik but feel free to correct me if I’m wrong there too.

    As a Jewish person, I appreciate those saying that this is not okay and that it is misinformation. No, 6 million Uyghur Muslims have not been murdered.

    And, as a Jewish person, I know that 6 million very well could be murdered. This is not another Shoah, but it very well could become another. As a Jewish person, I feel we must say “never again.”

    Never again.

    “Never again” does not mean “this event was so uniquely horrible, it could never happen again.” It means “this event was horrible, but not unique. We have to make sure it never happens again.”

    Never again.

    The Uyghur death count isn’t 6 million, that is misinformation. But “never again” means we have to make sure it doesn’t become 6 million.

    If you are not Jewish or Romani, do not draw comparisons to the Holocaust. All that provides is shock value and misinformation. What you can do is support Uyghur Muslims.

    we seriously need to bring back the concept of “despite its flaws i still enjoy it” instead of ‘cancelling’ every fuckin thing in sight 

    cosmiagramma

    We also need to stop insisting that everyone enjoying flawed things must put 25 cents in the Problematic Jar and recite all its failings from memory.

    virtualcarrot

    If I just may add: we really need to stop pretending that “I’m a Good person, ergo the thing I like is PERFECT and if you criticize it you’re an ENEMY”. You can enjoy stuff AND keep your sense of critical thinking.
