In honour and celebration of #Ind#IndigenousoryMonth, we joined @herbraids and @kenniwaa last night as Shopify launched their new digital exhibit celebrating three of their #Indigenous merchants. It's hard to put into words the inspiration, the feeling of pride in the room, the joy of celebrating these stories and entrepreneurs in our communities. The stories and photos will be playing at various times throughout the day in the Winter Garden lobby at Shopify so feel free to go in and have a look 🙏🏻❤️
Here are some photos and videos from an evening that we won't soon forget. Thank you @shopify and @burstphotos for supporting our vision and giving us the space to shine.
This is a recording of immigrant children heard here pleading in between sobs, to be allowed to stay with their parents. The audio was released by @propublica. // To the conservatives that excuse the behavior of their party because of a disgusting and hypocritical “team” philosophy: Fuck you you waste of humanity. Seriously. To the real conservative who has integrity and can use reason, logic, facts and empathy to interact in their society: Please think real hard where you will stand in history. Open up your heart and conscience and use your reason. We all know this is not right. We know things in this country have not been right for a while. We may differ on ideologies and methods for running this country but we forget that we are not running this country anymore. It has been hijacked by a few who have no morality and are only interested in furthering their assets. They’re screwing all of us. We have a same enemy. Let’s come together to take back our humanity in this country. We can argue how to run the country after we’ve won the war, but right now we need to fight together. This is not right and you fucking damn well know it. #keepfamiliestogether /////Repost @yarel_ramos "El llanto y temor de niños inmigrantes que se encuentran separados de sus padres en un centro de detención." #bluelivesmurder#notmypresident#unity#poc#staywoke#hermanxs#lgbtq#intersectionality#blacklivesmatter#nodapl#undocumentedandunafraid#brownprideforblackpower#nobanonstolenland#chingalamigra#blmforbrownpower /
