Gente!This is La Loba Loca asking for some financial support to continue pursuing Birth & Full-Spectrum work. Why? Because full-spectrum reproductive support and Queer/Trans People of Color Birth Work is extremely important. I am raising funds to cover for the first ever Queer/Trans People of Color Birthwork Project training happening in Seattle this July + funds to buy the books necessary to continue my midwifery studies + funds to go through the ‘certification’ process for a labor doula organization. Why would people be interested on donating for this? Because I have tons of cool perks but also because QPOC representation in the birth work is important. I am interested on figuring out a sustainable plan that will allow me to offer my support to people I care about- folx that get little to no access to compassionate and un-biased reproductive support such as teen parents/mamas of color, QTPOC fam, mamas of color, y mas! I have decided that I do not want to do this though an online platform so I will be updated the fundraised money on my website here. The goal for this fundraiser is $700.00Last year I fundraised to cover travel costs to get trained as an Abortion Doula/Support person through the Bay Area Doula Project. Once I got trained I co-founded Autonomous Communities for Abortion and Reproductive Support (ACRAS), a people of color collective that does work around grassroots Reproductive Justice and Abortion Doula/Support based in Los Angeles. I am planning to make sure that the knowledge and experiences that I gain from the support yall give me materializes into something that can be used by everyone- maybe a zine in the future, or maybe blog posts, still thinking how to make this happen…Perks Perks! I don’t like asking for money/things/life energy without giving anything back, so rest assure I have some perks for those that support. Some of the perks I am offering are: transferable discount coupons for lalobaloca.bigcartel.com, being part of the online report back, comadre time (talking session or most formally known as ‘consulation’, we can talk about anything, from how to set up a small business, reproductive justice, spanish lessons, herbs, plants, herb mixing, conscious menstruation, breathing techniques, how to cook decolonial food, whatevers!), seed packets, menstrual sponges, reusable cotton moon pads, zines, online resources, womb massage, herb mixing, and much more!

So sick of people who pretend their problem is with the word “feminism” rather than the concept of gender equality.

😁💜

I swear this is a transcript of like 500 conversations I’ve had in real life.

Hey y’all! Looking for submissions for the second issue of the nanny zine we put out last year. Please re-post/spread the word however you’d like! 
"CALLING ALL NANNIES
Collecting submissions for The Hand That Rocks The Cradle #2, 
a zine about nannying, made by nannies!
Do you have a horror story? A highlight? A list of things you’ve learned? Reflections on whether or not you want to be a parent now that you’ve been a nanny? An experience specific to being a POC/LGBTQ caretaker? 
Being a nanny is a tough, but rewarding job. It’s heartwrenching, aggravating, awkward, hilarious, sweet, and very personal - it’s a job unlike many others. We all have a lot to say when we get together. Let’s put it all into a zine. 
Any and all contributions are appreciated. We’d like to get as many perspectives as possible. Feel free to compose your submissions vaguely or submit anonymously for yours or your nanny family’s protection. We’re looking for variety - writing, comics, art, etc. All are fair game.
This will be a half-sized zine, so please submit all contributions at 300dpi, 5.5x8.5 or leave the formatting up to us. 
Deadline: June 16th - to debut the zine at the Philly Feminist Zine Fest (June 28)
Submit all contributions to: nannyzine@gmail.com”

Hey Y’all,

This group that I’ve been working with over the last few months is doing a Mama’s Day Campaign that could really use some support. It’s nothing monetary, and only takes a few moments. The group is called The Prison Birth Project, and they do support work with folks at the intersection of parenthood and incarceration, providing doulas for pregnant folks, court support, and advocacy.

This Mother’s Day, they’re asking for folks to write short notes and wishes for their members who are currently incarcerated. 

http://theprisonbirthproject.org/messages-across-bars

Thanks for your time and support!
