Basically, this is my link dump from everything I read over the week. I’m gifting it to you.
“Effective health care activism & advocacy needs to include disabled and chronically ill people.” https://t.co/jKxkMJ0gH0

5 Ways to Support Undocumented Folks
– These are all good ways. Also check locally to see if there’s an advocacy group. Last week my local county sheriff made a statement following efforts to not only make Ithaca a sanctuary city but the entire county that essentially said he would never instruct his deputies to actively alert authorities about undocumented people (and added that if someone commits a crime and they’re undocumented, then obviously they’re not going to get away with it because that’s basic common sense). I intend to write him a thank you letter.
