In a divisive culture, we from many different cultural backgrounds unite! What a great conversation, so educational and very powerful at the ElevationHUB last night, and about 55 care packages were made for the homeless in our city. Thanks brother Svein for leading the way! #conversation#refugees#immigrants#loveyourneighbor#elevationc#church

My parents.. 💕 >> This is for my #mom who spent so much time with me - listening to me, hugging, drying tears, drawing with me, reading #HarryPotter to me in first grade, allowing me to dream and use my imagination.
She wants me to become happy and doesn't want me to worry too much. She grew up in #Poland and danced professionally every day of her youth, was a scout in her childhood, learned how to sail and kayak and wanted to become a computer scientist. She was told there is no future in IT and that this is not a field for #women . Although she signed herself in for IT at college, she was signed out against her will.
She worked hard - in a Polish company, as a baby sitter in England (without knowing any English), as a waitress in #Germany (again, without speaking the language) - now she still works hard as a mother and in elderly care.
When I told her I wanted to study anthropology (not exactly a well-paid field), she was happy and wanted me to follow my dreams. She trusts me and supports me in every choice I make.
Forever grateful #Mama .
So basically for those who don’t speak French, there’s has been videos circulating on the internet of Libyen criminals selling africain immigrants that are travelling to Europe passing by Libya as slaves. I have no words to magnify how grotesque and inhuman these Disgraceful criminals are but for now just keep the information circulating to denounce this disgraceful act. #libya#criminal#justice#onu#cnn#african#immigrants partagez et Écrivez a #ONU et S’il vous plaît écrivez au premier ministre du Cananda ,moi je lui écrit à lui et à l’ONU , plus ils verront nos messages plus ils seront forcés d’agir , c’est déjà faire une action merci .
Happy 5th birthday to us! Thank you @southportcorridorchicago @thisislakeview for loving and supporting us the way you do! Thank you for leading by example on what it is to support #smallbusiness Shout out to @sroper94 @caviar_and_pbr for the amazing spicy chocolate/red velvet empanada cake! It was amazing! And thank you to all of the cafe tola employees who have always shared our vision of building a business that feels like home. In five years we started with 5 employees and have grown to 25!!!! This is why small businesses matter! We contribute to the economy in big ways, putting good people to work, good food in your hands, and it all started with immigrants like my grandmother Doña Tola @donatolatacos that helped build our family with hard work and love for her family. #chicagomade#homemade#bestempanadas#chicago#love#happyanniversary#immigrants#cafetola#donatola#love
The American Language Institute is proud to honor former student Angela Diniz from Brazil for her courageous and selfless actions during last month’s terror attack at the West Side Highway. Angela, a school crossing guard at Chambers and Greenwich Streets, led 15 children to safety during the attack and is shown here with NYC mayor Bill de Blasio. Angela, we are honored to claim you as one of our own. 💜

If you take a school bus or public transit, tell the driver to drive safe when you get off!!! On a particularly stormy/snowy day, it can mean a lot more than just ‘thanks’ (which is of also great and honestly everybody should thank their bus drivers) but they work so hard and have to get up super early and deserve a little appreciation and acknowledgement that they’re human, too.

Brace yourself. It won’t be easy. It won’t be smooth. Your heart will oscillate, between I can and I can’t. And ever swinging pendulum. Your heart will fight a battle with your mind that it never prepared for, a battle where the only opponent is your fears. It’s a wrestle with your thoughts, you’ve prepared your entire life. Past the pendulum of fear, memories wait for you with the yearning of a thousand years.

I DECIDED TO SHARE THIS BECAUSE IT'S MORE IMPORTANT THAN FASHION AND BEAUTIFUL PICTURES ON INSTAGRAM..
14 November 2017 , CNN has published a report about the slave market in Libya, the majority come from sub-Saharan Africa who fleeing war, persecution by the djihadistes, or poverty .. This make me so sick and disgust me to the highest point. I can't stop crying to see that in 2017, 21Century, people are living that, that people are sold and traded like slaves to work in farms and house.... i can't stay silent, you can't stay silence. This is not a battle about Blacks people, but a Universal battle... I demand of those who have a conscious to let their voices be heard about this horrific nightmare. .
J'AI DÉCIDÉ DE PARTAGER CECI AVEC VOUS CAR C'EST PLUS IMPORTANT QUE LA MODE ET LES BELLES PHOTOS SUR INSTAGRAM.
J’ai le cœur qui saigne, de découvrir qu'en 2017, au 21ème Siècle, en ces temps modernes, que les hommes sont encore vendus comme esclaves, afin de travailler dans les fermes, dans les maisons, ou devenir des esclaves sexuels.. Je ne m'indigne pas seulement, du fait que je sois Noire et qu'en 2017 l'on vende encore les hommes Noirs comme au temps de l'esclavage, ou comme ci être Noir est un crime contre l'humanité. .
Mais je m'indigne encore plus, du fait qu'un homme puisse vendre un autre être humain comme lui. Ceci n'est pas un combat pour les noirs, mais un combat universel qui nous concerne tous. De ce fait j'ai décidé de ne pas être silencieuse à propos de tout ceci, tu ne peux pas être silencieux après ce cauchemar que tu viens de prendre connaissance, levons nous tous et unissons nous main dans la main, en partageant ceci afin que ceci circule et réveille la conscience de nos grands dirigeants. ✊🏾 L'HOMME N'EST PAS À VENDRE

The @ISSofBC was one of my most eye opening experiences! They are a full service centre to ensure that immigrants & refugees have a base to begin their new lives & ensure they have financial stability in #Vancouver w/ @VancityCU. As a child of immigrants, it really touched my heart that as a Vancity member, my money helped other immigrants settle.
