I AM A PERSON.

"You want to legislate personhood? I for one think that’s a fantastic idea. Let’s hang person signs on the 408 thousand children currently in foster care. Let’s give person papers to the undocumented workers keeping your lawns so emerald green. Let’s grant personhood to gay couples who just want to marry the person they love. Let’s write in huge bold letters "you are a person" on the walls of inner city high schools on the hospital beds of uninsured workers, on prison cells and in tombs of soldiers kills for oil Let’s give the gift of personhood, to every woman, tell her your body is not a battle ground, your womb not a campaign promise, your bedroom not artillery" 

"Grandpa, you are a person, but you will never have to pass a bill to prove it" 

Personhood - Lauren Zuniga

Probably the most powerful poem I have heard. 

prettylittlereign:

are you human? then you NEED to know this.

there are more people physically enslaved today than at any other time in human history. 27 MILLION men, women and children are trapped in slavery around the world today. nothing will change until people are aware and act.

this february 27th (next thursday), join us as we SHINE A LIGHT ON SLAVERY. draw a RED X on your hand. tell your world that slavery still exists and YOU WON’T STAND FOR IT. just use your influence any way you can so even more people know. 

"you may choose to look the other way, but you can never say again that you did not know" - william wilberforce

“This is some Nazi Germany shit right here. First it’s banning them from certain restaurants and public places, then they won’t be able to sit on park benches or ride bikes or go to schools with the straight kids. Maybe they will make them wear armbands with “gay” on them, then round them up into ghettos. When people in America found out about the persecution of Jewish people, gay people, gypsies, and anyone who was different, back in the 1940’s they were horrified. Well guess who are the ones causing the horror now?”
