Natasha F Agrama  Finding Forever ✨👁💧👁✨

Dream team! So happy to b home and back to work with my LA peoples...

This movement is like a precious infant and music is it’s comfort.
As the rally of (5000?) marched on, this small group stopped at the nations capital to formally deliver 2 huge boxes of documents containing the demands of the Poor People’s Campaign to whom it may concern... The breadth and scope of the greatness of the individuals who all came together here LITERALLY is beyond words. Look around at these faces, you may recognize a few, and those that you don’t know are each representing their state’s steering committee, some of the most beautiful active and compassionate individuals I’ve ever had the honor of sharing space with.

Summer Solstice ✨ so glad this was the longest day of the year because it was the best day yet. Celebrations for the completion of 40 days of Non Violent Moral Fusion Direct Action at 41 states and DC to LAUNCH the Poor People’s Campaign: a National Call for Moral Revival!

MLK speaks on a revolution of values:
“…we as a nation must undergo a radical revolution of values. We must rapidly begin the shift from a “thing‐oriented” society to a “person‐oriented” society. When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered…True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar; it is not haphazard and superficial. It comes to see that an edifice, which produces beggars needs restructuring. A true revolution of values will soon look uneasily on the glaring contrast of poverty and wealth…A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.”
—“Beyond Vietnam” (April 1967)

In the presence of my hero today. Our generation’s MLK ... Dr Rev William Barber ... still can barely process.. i will always remember this blessed day when i helped lead a march of hundreds of some of this nation’s most beautiful souls- who use their lives to make audible the voices of the voiceless, to make visible all those who are systematically overlooked and oppressed... to right the wrongs of the warmongering machine that is our government. We marched from the National Mall to this profound force of a man who met us at the Nation’s Capital ... all the way honored beyond belief to be in this place singing my heart out leading songs and chants on the bull horn that I then handed to him so he could lead us up to a wall of 1000 or so police to successfully commit civil disobedience in the name of LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL. I knelt down and wept privately at his feet forrealllll... woah. How did this happen??? Grace is real. My dream is coming true.... The time for LOVE’S REVOLUTION is NOW and my tears and sweat and voice are serving a greater purpose. When they were booking us after arrest, i guess i was staring off into space, only thing is the space was filled with a cop’s eyes and i guess it seemed to him i was doing that intentionally because he then looked at the sign i happened to be holding which read, “poverty wages are violence” and he looked back into my eyes and affirmed - “Respect.” Just a microscopic example, but affirmation nonetheless that THIS NATION IS UNDERGOING A RADICAL SHIFT IN VALUES... I’m grateful for all the everyday heroes and even the villains for the consciousness they are spawning. I’m proud to be a living drop of blood pumping the beat of this country’s awakening heart. ❤️📢😭

❤️ oops I missed the jump off cuz I was inside the action... luckily Frankie has my back🙏🏽What a way to culminate the launch of @californiappc... IT IS TIME TO CHANGE THE NARRATIVE AROUND MORALITY! It’s time to claim once and for all that Poverty is immoral and systemic, Racism is immoral and systemic, Ecological Devastation is IMMORAL and effects us all, the War Economy is immoral and completely out of control, and finally we have to look at the distorted moral narrative in this country that blames poverty on the poor while strengthening a system that just perpetuates interlocking systems of oppression. Join us and feel the power of coming together to put in good work to fulfill Dr King’s dream... And now I’m off to DC to stand with my hero Dr Rev Barber 😭 REPRESENT!!!!!!✊🏽 I have so much to say about my own experience and how grateful I️ am for this opportunity and all the gifts it’s giving and developing in me but for now I’ll just take a nap.

We are a new unsettling force and we believe that 🎤Everybody’s Got a Right to Live🎼 and Before This Campaign Fails, We’ll All Go Down to Jail✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿✊🏼✊🏻art by @miss_destiny_nolen

Our co-chair @kaitziegler speaking in the middle of the Senate Chambers take over after authorities had already forcibly evacuated more than half of us. The senators did not recess, many clapped themselves and listened, to me some looked filled with hope with these voices arresting their well oiled machine. I️t maybe afforded a time to re-examine the scope and purpose of their work, perhaps momentary - but don’t worry... we’ll be back.
Today’s focus was on housing, homelessness, the right to LIVE and all that entails. (Ps pls pardon vid not being sync’s to music .. live-streaming from the @californiappc Facebook page which you ought to follow:)

ADELANTE! @californiappc @poorpeoplescampaign FEELS LIKE A STRONG START... ✊🏽 celebrating our take over today of the Senate Chambers, declaring- NO MORE BUSINESS AS USUAL! ❤️ WILL WIN. FORWARD TOGETHER !!! Not one step back.

Baby’s first ride... still smells the same as the days my mom loaned it to me before I even had my permit... hashtag happy belated badass mothers day

Very grateful for this movement... nothing like hundreds of empathetic and passionate hearts raising up their voices as one in the House of the people. We covered that Columbus statue with signs that said RACISM IS IMMORAL, POVERTY IS IMMORAL, etc... we sang all day until they arrested us at 9pm, though I didn’t get cuffed today... it was a hard choice to make truly but i have work tomorrow and have to make the drive back to LA in the early AM... Feeling deeply grateful there is a place for me in this movement... and just feeling honored to be able to be of service with my limited and specialized skill set; turns out Art IS revolution! ・・・
SINGING IN OUR HOUSE, AND WE WON’T BE SILENT ANYMORE. Welcome to Week 2 of the birthing of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival.
#poorpeoplescampaign #unitethepoor #moralmonday #moralmovement @californiappc @poorpeoplescampaign

I’m doing this for the world, but I’m also doing this for me: for the little girl in me who grew up heartbroken ever since the first day she saw a homeless person in LA, who’s heart broke further when she discovered what slavery was, and further when she found out about the plight of native peoples around the world as well as people of color, and further still when she heard about her first hero’s work and assassination, feeling the time for Love’s revolution had passed with the 60’s. Im doing this because staying silent in these times is a crime against humanity. I’m doing this because it’s always been my deepest dream to be a part of Dr. King’s legacy, to help him in his work. I’ve finally been given my chance: this is HIS movement, led by clergy people, directly impacted individuals, AND organizers, with concept of MORALITY at its crux. This is the only way for me. I’ve always felt that art and music are the highest forms of activism, and this movement upholds the importance of art and music and keeps them in the forefront. There is no feeling like hearing hundreds of voices raising up as ONE!!!! 🙏🏽
So I’m inviting you to go to
This movement has a major educational back end - discover facts that will activate your compassion into action, naturally! WE AIM TO DEFIBRILLATE THE HEART OF THIS NATION!!! We are saying Poverty is IMMORAL, Racism is IMMORAL, the War Economy is IMMORAL, and Ecological Devastation is IMMORAL. 🙏🏽
We will be at your state capital this Monday and every Monday for the next 5 weeks, and we’ll be singing, “SOMEBODY’S HURTING OUR PEOPLE and it’s gone on FAR TOO LONG... and WE WONT BE SILENT ANYMORE!” I want you to sing along...!! I can’t hear you!!! A little bit louder now!!!!
