Selfless Signal-Boosting (July)

These signal-boosting posts are a complement to our long-standing Shameless Self-Promotion Sundays, this thread is for recommending someone else‘s writings/events/fundraisers etc. Use this thread for ICYMI links and anything else you think other readers might find interesting.

Especially welcome are links to those who are blogging on issues Feministe has not recently addressed (the links can be to older posts, just something you’ve found recently relevant).  Please save the self-promotion links for Sundays – use this thread to let Feministe readers know about the other blogs you love to read, and activist/celebration events you long to attend, especially from those on the margins of the mainstream social justice communities, who tend to not get as much exposure as they should.

Netiquette Guidelines:

  1. Effective signal boosting names the article author(s) and/or organising bodies.
  2. Include content notes/trigger warnings/NSFW alerts where needed as a courtesy to other readers.
  3. Keep this thread focussed on the linking – the idea is to make your comments on the other blogs being linked!  (seconding/thirding etc is fine, adding extra Content Notes for the benefit of other readers is a community service, linking further/related reading is always welcome, but keep it short and sweet)
  4. If you have Reasons to not leave a response on a recommended article, don’t just dump it on this thread  ~ analytical discussions about various links belong on the Open Thread or Spillover.

    My friend’s daughter was born with lissencephaly, which means that her brain is smooth instead of bumpy. She’s almost 4 and is getting too big for them to carry around, so she now has a wheelchair. Her parents are trying to raise money to buy a wheelchair van and they could use some help.

    Help Lunden get a ride!

    Here’s an urgent fundraiser for Jill Brenneman. Jill is a trafficking survivor and sex workers’ rights activist who has recently been on the receiving end of medical maltreatment and has a terminal condition as a result. She will hopefully have heart surgery within the next month, and needs financial support as her health insurance has been obstructive.

    To learn more about Jill, here’s the first installment of a multi-post interview. Trigger warning: she was subjected to horrific violence over a period of years, and it makes for hard reading. However, Jill’s insight and compassion really stand out.
