esequeerphiota As #activists we are often put into situations that are uncomfortable and often told by others that we were born in the wrong time for our "unique styles of thought." As an activist my self I am told that I am too #Radical for society and within #SocialJustice spaces I am told I am too #Conservative. I often feel misplaced amongst my peers and community for my point of view and place on the spectrum. Then I look to my #Sheros and #PossibilityModels for guidance from their experiences and words of wisdom. I am deeply honored and blessed to share space with this individual. This is #MariaGMartinez many folks won't recognize her because she is quite a humble #Muxer and our history books have forgotten about her contributions to the #Chicano movement. She was one of the first Muxers to take the stage and demand equal representation and rights for #Chicanas in the Chicano movements first moratorium on Dec 20th 1969. Back in the day the men were taking up too much space and not allowing the #Muxers room to speak up. Maria with her forward state of mind took the stage with other Muxers to make space and pave the way for future #Muxers to have the right to speak up and be given space. She not only fought for the rights of #Womyn she also #advocated for people of color in their struggle, she advocated for an end to the #Vietnam war and for equal opportunities for all . Not only that she was one of the few Americans invited to go to #China in which she sat down and met with the #ThePeoplesPartyOfChina to discuss social justice issues in the #UnitedStates and #China. She is legendary in our own right as she stood against the mainstream and made #Herstory. I am proud to announce that she will be coming to #CalPolyPomona on behalf of the #CalPolyPomonaPhiotas🦁 to be our guest speaker in March so be ready to be schooled and learn a little bit about #Chicana herstory directly from this amazing activist herself. For more information or if you would like to co sponsor the event message me directly 🏾. #ΦΙΑ #ElProfesorIsBack 🏽 #CalPolyPomona #Hero #HerAdviceIsAmazing #SheIsUnstoppable 2h

happilyveganafter_ All #vegans should be #environmentalists, #activists, #conservationists, #pacifists, #supporters of #smallbusinesses, #anticapitalists, #socialists...
Because all opposites of these hurt animals (humans included), directly and sometimes not so directly.
