AvaLynn was attacked by another student on the school playground. We are fighting for answers and for greater supervision at school.

My friend Lacey Harris’s 5 year old daughter was brutalized by another child on the playground at school this week, in Pascagoula, Mississippi. Her face is swollen and bruised beyond recognition, and the only thing the school can tell her is that they “are investigating”

This sweet little 5 year old girl is terrified to return to school. She is in pain and she has been MAIMED. This needs IMMEDIATE media attention. The school and local news are ignoring the mother’s and loved ones’ cries for help. This family needs justice for what has been done to their poor little angel, and not just to be swept under the rug, as the school district is attempting to do. PLEASE shine some light on this situation and force school administration and news media to get some answers!

The mother has started a GoFundMe page to request help for paying medical bills and legal fees, as it looks as though she’s going to have to pursue this route in order to get any justice at all for her little girl. Please, please, share this link on your page. Even if people are unable to donate, please just help us get the word out on what is going on with this poor family.

This is really heartbroken for me and extremely hard to look at.

This is the link to Ava’s donation page.
Please donate and share and PRAY!
God bless you all!

Things You Can Do For Ferguson:

donrickles:

  • Donate money to have those arrested in Ferguson released on bail. These people belong on the streets, especially at a time like this.
  • Send a note of condolence to the family of Michael Brown. Let’s not forget the tragedy that started this.
  • Donate to the Michael Brown Memorial Fund. This is an official fundraiser run by the Brown family’s lawyers. They are going through so much, lets make sure at the very least it isn’t a financial burden.
  • Help get people on the ground. There are activists and reporters who want to do their part and get to Ferguson. Donate and get them there. I am so far aware of Zellie Imani, Zak Jemmott, and JR Valrey (a reporter for SF Bay View).
  • Donate to the Ferguson Youth Initiative.The children of this community deserve better than to be gunned down. Make sure they get that in the future.
  • Feed the children of Ferguson. Many children in America rely on school to get their meals and thanks to the civil unrest caused by the police, the children of Ferguson have been without school since Monday. These people want to make sure that doesn’t mean anyone is going hungry.
  • Donate to the protestors. There is not much oversight here as it is just a personal email address you’re sending funds too here but it appears to be legitimate and there are certainly people on the ground who could use the help.
  • Donate to the businesses of Ferguson. Small business owners in the community are struggling as people are either protesting or trying to stay off the streets. Don’t let the police brutality going on ravage this community long term.
  • Plan a protest or action in your own community. Look around, see if one has been scheduled. If not, consider starting one. If you do I recommend following these tips.
  • Keep awareness up. Not just among the like-minded people on tumblr, this is something everyone needs to be aware of.
  • Spread accurate information. There is a lot of distortion going on here and spreading every piece of information as it is reported only makes that worse. First and foremost make sure you are listening carefully, then share what is important and relevant.

If you are aware of any good causes or ways to help that I have missed, please reblog and add them.

just in case there’s anyone in Ferguson who’s following info on tumblr as well

sadly, with the way the police are out, marching, and ready for the curfew (with dogs), there are some people that may need this

According to people I follow on Twitter (live-tweeting from #Ferguson), the police just told the media to get out of Ferguson. It’s going down tonight, y’all. They are going to do everything in their power to fuckin kill & harm more black people.

Fuck the police. BURN THE PIGS!

NEED COUCH/HOUSING/RESOURCES- NYC

transhousingnetwork:

Urgently seeking safe housing and resources.

Access to public transport is absolutely necessary. I’m white, genderfluid, homeless, employed, I sometimes work late hours and don’t have somewhere to go after. Duration of stay is unimportant but the longer term the better. You can contact me by shooting me an ask (clairvoyantcancer.tumblr.com/ask) or just reblogging this post. Even somewhere just to shower is appreciated.

In terms of rent, I can pay $500-$600 but have poor credit and no guarantors or support from anyone so I probably can’t sign a lease.

NEED COUCH - Rochester NY

transhousingnetwork:

Hello!

23, Black, Able-Bodied, Pansexual, Aromantic, Transman 

I am in desperate need of housing by August 10th (give or take a few days) preferably for a long term stay but If you could only have me for a few days or so that would be excellent. I have a full time job which means for me i can comfortably pay $500 for rent (at most 600). I would also be willing to work out a weekly or daily rate if that would be easier!

I have very few possessions and i require as much as a blanket on the floor and a place to put my duffle bag and back pack. 

The reason I have to move is because i have been techincally living with my room mates illegally for the past 6 months after leaving physically and emotionally abusive parents in a different state but the land lord has gotten antsy so I must go.

My job is closer to brighton/pittsford but honestly anything in the greater rochester area is fine with me as long as i can walk or bus (walking for me is 6ish miles) because i do not have a car.

Please spread the word because I literally do not have any place to go back to and I would like not to be homeless again.
