We are proud to partner with @miryslist and take part in their first-ever new arrivals festival June 28 in Los Angeles. Part of the event will include a pop-up #welcomeblanket exhibition. They are choosing to share this big loving craftivism welcome as a collective show for the community and then take the individual gifts and  wrap them and give them later on (we will keep you posted). Here’s a link to register for the event (it’s a pay-what-you can situation) https://miryslist.org/events/2018/6/28/new-arrival-festival-a-cultural-celebration-of-the-newest-angelenos 😻 #Repost @miryslist

"i really don't care. do u?" what was she thinking? "it's a jacket. there was no hidden message," a spokesperson for melania trump said after she wore this on a visit to a child detention center in texas, a day after her husband ended his policy of separating families at the border. so far 2,342 children have been separated from 2,206 adults, and it's still unclear whether they'll be reunited. click the link in bio to read the full story.

Nadie deja su hogar si su hogar no le echa, con fuego bajo los pies, sangre caliente en el vientre. (...) nadie sube a sus hijos a un barco, a menos que el agua sea más segura que le tierra, (...) nadie pasa días y noches en las entrañas de un camión, alimentándose de periódicos, a no ser que las millas recorridas, signifiquen algo más que el simple camino.

Each piece is crafted using the traditional Middle-eastern techniques of weaving and twining. Yet they mutate into wearable sculptures as Su translates them in her own language. Imbued with the weight of heritage, the organic shapes of the pieces envelop the wearer like external limbs. (By Marie Couvert-Castéra) 
Many thanks to unique people who made the performance incredibly moving.

This is my Grandpa, Peng Tiequan. I've been having many convos about privilege lately, and I want to share a bit of his story.
_
The son of a Manchurian Mayor in Northern China, my Grandpa was forced to flee home as a kid during China's Civil War. One of 9 kids, he and his siblings ran from city to city under the wing of their courageous Mama after their Dad fled to Taiwan to escape execution. They made it to Beijing where my Grandpa went on to attend Tsinghua University. He became a decorated athlete, breaking the national marathon record in 2hr 30min. He was captain of the men's track team and met my Grandma while she was captain of the women's track team. The rest is history. ☺️
_
I'm usually pretty sheepish about this story cuz I felt a lot of pressure growing up in the shadows of a legacy family and telling it can feel brag-y. But recently with all the news of oppression against refugees, I can't help but think of my Grandpa and all the hardships he had to face to get to where he is today. I am incredibly privileged to lead a life of choice, to travel and do work that I enjoy and I owe a lot of that to him. 🙏🏼❤️

Cannot mention this often enough these days: my grandma was a refugee, too. And there were many of them. Remembering this helps me seeing strangers as human beings with no choice but their will to survive. A smile is easy and does not cost anything except a little courage to take step aside our thought patterns. Welcome and embrace diversity. It‘ll make you richer in the end.

“Say it with me, Yo Soy Muslim. Our prayers were here before any borders were.” (Excerpt from #YoSoyMuslim)
•
My heart has been hurting watching photo of children crying and families separated. So I spent yesterday visiting several bookstores in Los Angeles, autographing surprise love letters in the inner jacket of my children’s book to whoever bought them.
•
What did i say? “Thank you, for caring for children of all prayers and languages.” For in this moment where we are witnessing children being harmed at the border, spoken of as less of a child because “they’re not ours”, I wanted to give a small gift to the parents of many faiths, who’ve been gifting this story of loving yourself in terrible times, a special thank you. A thank you that reminds us.

It was recently #worldrefugeeday, every day displaced adults and children are living with this uncertain and traumatic reality, because of invisible lines and war hungry sub-human (at best) psychopaths.
.
Victoria Square, Athens, April 2016
Seconds after I took this photo Ahmad had run over to me asking me what the sign said. We went through it, and I pointed to a group of Greek anti-fascists and said, those people are on your side.
Our meeting shook me, his words about Afghanistan, politicians and why his family needed to leave; his resilience and seeing this child who was now clearly an adult.
.
Then you come back to the UK and hear things like, from your own family:

then you come back to the uk and hear things like, from your own family:
"tell me why they have mobile phones and wear designer clothing", when you break it down for them, simply put, point out their mother is an immigrant and how mass production works because of capitalism, their brains tick over. but its ok for them to be migrants, out of choice, because they are white. .
or this blinding comment from your landlord "you need to stop banging this refugee drum", he said with the news on in the background depicting war in iraq and the reporter states how many more displaced people this will create.
.
fuck you.
.
if as a member of the human race you can justify the wars and politics that are mass traumatising and abandoning these children on such a huge scale, if you cannot reach into the pits of your humanity and understand that actually, this is clear cut, this is fascism. if it doesnt bother you when you see children suffering because of what ahmad demanded from me to know:
"why are the politicians doing this to us? don't they know we are human too?" - then you aren't someone for me however we know each other.
