OCCUPY JCPENNEY.
But seriously, this was taken at Occupy Redding today. This is me, wearing my Contend t-shirt backwards, and holding a sign that says:
"Help the Rez, Not the Rich!"”97% of the population of the Pine Ridge Reservation lives under the national poverty level”.
It was really windy and cold, but also very empowering and my mom and I yelled A LOT. I was also introduced to the woman who runs our Women’s Health Center and she suggested I stop by and meet all the girls and join their outreach program. “We need young Native feminists like you!”, she said. And for some reason, it felt really really good to hear.
THERE IS NO REASON THAT THE PEOPLE OF PINE RIDGE AND OTHER RESERVATIONS SHOULD LIVE THE WAY THEY DO. Take a break from helping out other countries that need our help, and start helping our brothers and sisters that share this land:www.friendsofpineridge.org
