And while we have focused this on the Bay Area, we know the Bay Area is not in any way unique, and our communities are international. So this is also to acknowledge those in other geographic locations. We welcome all who want to struggle together to transform the structural problems that foster sexual violence.

after September 11th, the Department of Homeland Security started sending out checks to buy new military-grade equipment from companies that have now sprung up to build that equipment. So, you know, this—what we’re seeing in Ferguson, this is not a local issue, really. I mean, this is something that’s been driven by national policies, by policies that Congress has approved of and has oversight of, and could end tomorrow, if they wanted to.

i told myself that when i got to iowa i was going to quit single-use plastics. inspired by an oakland friend, once i drove the 2200 miles from california, pumpkin seeds from mexico in tehachapi and the one bottle of water purchased when the gas station didn’t have water in their soda machine behind me, i was going to buy in bulk with brown paper or cotton tote bags, make my own yogurt and store it in glass containers, and eschew store-bought chips. but while i love the minimal amount of stuff i own after traveling for a year, i still, not used to being settled anywhere and definitely not to living ALONE, don’t have a cutting board. and when i got to the co-op, the local organic milk only comes in a plastic bottle, and i am really, really, really wanting yogurt, and also the sweet potato chips which are on sale—

so while i am job-hunting and throwing out applications here and there and calling people and trying to find a broom and a wooden spoon i also start thinking about where the closest dairy might be where i could bring my own bottle to fill up (this is the midwest, after all!), and i’m going to go back to new pi with a jar for peanut butter later this week, and in the meantime i’m going to be reusing the yogurt container and washing the chip bag and the olive oil and yogurt seals and and wondering if hanging on to them and not writing from a place of guilt because i am not a catholic or even protestant or lutheran or anything and living with the particles that the recycling loop cannot always accommodate is doing anything like “saving energy.”
