"Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a historical tradition rooted in pre- and postcolonial spiritual practices of Mesoamerican peoples. It is a day to remember those who have passed and their legacies. We also honor and celebrate the legacy we would like to leave. Southerners on New Ground (SONG) highlights the death-reeling realities for all our communities. We mourn AND uplift the lives taken from us through incarceration, deportation, and state-sanctioned murder." Set up by Durham's SONG Latinx caucus and friends, this altar will be in Central Park until Sunday. #SONG #SONGfam #Latinx #Caucus #Laluchanostransforma #DDLM #diadelosmuertos #Nov2nd #honorourdead #fightlikehell #fortheliving

Always a blessing to be back on The Hill. Workshop with Kifu on SONG's bail out actions as an intervention to the prison industrial complex went great! Co-recreating our highlander stories with Ekua by painting on a truck door is magic. Been rolling in the grass and soaking in the healing of the mountains. 💗🤗🌌 #queer #genderqueer #queerliberation #EndMoneyBail #CashBailBlues #abolition #organizeorganizeorganize #highlander #85thhomecoming #SONG #SONGfam

Setting up for Black August Bail Out in Durham! "Money kept you in. Black Love got you out" "Freedom is our birthright" #queer #genderqueer #queerliberation #SONG #SONGfam #BlackAugustBailOut #EndMoneyBail #abolition #BullCity
Hmm, how am I feeling about SONG's Black August Bail Out in Durham tomorrow?! In the voice of a random 3rd grader I heard on a podcast: "this is gonna be lit!" To further honor Black August, we are having a People's Feast on Thursday 5-8 @ Forest Hills Park. 🤗😋 (Contribute at bit.ly/blackaugustwishlist) Due to the court and social services support we provide, 6 out of the 14 Black Women we bailed out in May have had charges completely dropped. Everytime someone goes to court we get our bail money back so we can continue to do this action again and again. We know the road to abolition is not clearly paved but we believe it is our duty to figure it out. (Continue donating at bit.ly/blackaugustbailfund) We know our world is heavy with harm and trauma and we must be held accountable to the pain we inflict upon one another. We know jails and prisons don't reduce "crime." They only cause more harm. We know the prison industrial complex is modern day slavery and if we do not do something about it, we collude in its creation. I am so thrilled (see photo) and honored and humbled to be in this work. It's the Black August Bail Out y'all!!

#Repost cuz apparently the first vids didn't have sound and sorry! with my simple video editor, I couldn't put text on each clip.

This rarely happens but we got to have an Asian Pacific Islander/Diaspora Caucus at gaycation this year! We talked about the problematic, catch all term of API and how organizing our people is deeply multicultural. As Brown/Asian people, we discussed what our role is in SONG and in anti-racism work in general. We addressed how white-supremacy and anti-Blackness show up in our communities and our own experiences of carrying dominance and oppression in our bodies and history. These gatherings are so sacred and I am so grateful. Kept forgetting to take a group photo but here's most of us. (I feel like I'm missing someone tho, please lemme know if I am!)
