To Be Safe for Myself and Others (Guest Post by Jade Fang)

It’s my job to be safe for myself and other people. I decide how I can talk to people, do work, and be myself in a safe way.

I think Cheryl Strayed said it the best.

“Nobody will protect you from your suffering. You can’t cry it away or eat it away or starve it away or walk it away or punch it away or even therapy it away. It’s just there, and you have to survive it. You have to endure it. You have to live through it and love it and move on and be better for it and run as far as you can in the direction of your best and happiest dreams across the bridge that was built by your own desire to heal.” Cheryl Strayed, Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar

Support Puerto Rico!

Health and Acupuncture for the People
Can you give to support grassroots hurricane relief in Puerto Rico?
Help POCA raise $1500 for volunteer run acupuncture clinics

The crisis that is still unfolding in Puerto Rico may have started with two historically devastating hurricanes, but over six months later, the continued despair and devastation people face, is definitely manufactured by imperialism.  Puerto Rico, still a colony of the United States with no voting power, was still reeling from the neoliberal, 2016 Promesa Act, which created an unelected Fiscal Control Board that cut necessary social services, when the hurricanes struck back-to-back in 2017. Six months after Hurricanes Irma and Maria devastated the island, many people are still without power in what is being called the longest blackout in US history.

But people in Puerto Rico are fighting back, building the necessary grassroots infrastructure to build community power to fight colonialism and support a people’s-led hurricane recovery.  Proyecto Salud y Acupuntura para el Pueblo (SAPP) is one such project, building the practice of liberation acupuncture, to provide communities with support for sleep, stress, and trauma during this continuing crisis.
