#introduction: I'm Kit, I like games about feelings and people, ideally in weird (and especially spooky) circumstances. I make some, too. Been working on Et in Arcadia Ego, my Regency fantasy game, for a while, and have a few other smaller projects bubbling along.
You wanna play? Let's play.
This is my all-RPGs-all-the-time alt.
Take half an hour out of your day and watch this, then get it in front of some friends, and change your social media watching habits: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pvqa8dsBtno
My history is as a union organizer. I have a specific set of organizing strategies that I am familiar with, that work in a certain broad set of contexts. But they don't work in all contexts!
I'm going to use this thread to share some of the strategies and analyses I have learned as a union organizer.
I would like to encourage other organizers to respond to this post to share what strategies they have learned.
Please boost this so we can reach as many organizers as possible!
51 Republican senators just voted against an amendment to the #FamiliesFirst #Coronavirus Response Act that would have expanded paid leave to millions of Americans left out of the package. Let that sink in.
I'm sorry but Grubhub and Doordash and so aren't filling a social need, they're dominating a market niche and everyone's focus on them as heroes right now is distracting from efforts to set up actually accessible and sanitary food distribution.
Like, untrained workers handling food that is only sold at high mark-up and then transported around in private vehicles throughout neighborhoods? Charging huge fees?
Holy fuck! That's not a solution!!

after this is all over, be sure to remind people, as often as they'll allow you to get away with it, that:
telecoms did not need data caps, had plenty of capacity to donate to low-income folks, and were never in danger of going bankrupt because of the lack of data caps or the additional usage
folks who work on computers all day can do that wherever computers are; most tech offices are merely trophies to show off to other tech offices.
the government wasn't concerned with helping people, it was concerned with helping business. it was people who were helping people and often the government merely got in the way of that.
trillions of dollars was found to allocate as soon as they wanted to; every time anyone asks how anything will be funded it's merely to shut down the conversation.
keep a running list of your favorite facts and get them in front of as many folk as you can, as often as you can, and maybe, just maybe, we can get more folks on board for change
@lumpley the way you ended your latest post on using PbtA approaches in game design is a DAMN TEASE.
Right now the Nelson Women's Centre only has 14 more days to raise a final $2000 or they don't get any of the money they raised in their campaign.
it's gross and creepy to see patterns in sites like Netflix where I'll watch a few films in Spanish or watch a couple films with Black leads, or i'll watch a few LGBTQ romances, and then all of a sudden the whole site changes. film covers are changed to display BIPOC folx more often, i somehow unlock whole new categories of films, etc.
then i watch a couple of blockbusters one weekend and the site reverts to a homogenized safety bubble of middle class hetero white society
it's scary to think how many sites create these safe spaces for privileged people to erase everyone not like them, and no one even notices
Media literacy lesson time y'all!
"The RCMP are being pulled out of Wet'suwet'en territory, meeting demands of protesters blockading transportation around the country."
Incorrect! The protests are in solidarity with the Wet'suwet'en, who are not protesting the RCMP being in their territory, but the invasion of their territory by the Canadian government, which involves both the RCMP and Coastal GasLink.
Y'know, the oil pipeline. At the center of this. Now being erased.
Media literacy matters.
