Elders: Could you use some help with grocery shopping?

Shop Around is a convenient, low cost shuttle that makes it easier to go grocery shopping for seniors over 65 and people with disabilities.  The shuttle takes you and others directly to the store in San Francisco where you like to shop.  You'll have about an hour to shop, and the driver will help carry your groceries on and off the shuttle.  Each one-way trip costs $2.00.  There are certain eligibility requirements.  For more information, call 415-351-7052.

Pushed & Punched (A Song)

Pushed & Punched

Verse 1
Smack down on the ground
All around the world
Seoul Korea, Africa, Canada & America
Not a drum, bones snapping POW POW

Pushed & Punched
Pushed & Punched
Pushed & Punched
By who? P.O.L.I.C.E

Verse 2
Dwight pushed out of his wheelchair
Sandy pushed to the sidewalk
Mentally disabled woman punched
What’s going on here?

Pushed & Punched
Pushed & Punched
Pushed & Punched
By who? P.O.L.I.C.E

Got a camera
But they don’t care
Investigating themselves
On video still justice is nowhere

“Get out of my way!”

Leroy Moore's Best 50 Quotes/Statements of 2011 from Leroy

1) When I was young I was looking for the mirror but couldn't find it until I looked within then reflected it outward.

2) We know that Ableism is a form of discrimination or social prejudice against people with disabilities. And we also know that the mainstream music industry and media refuse to deal with their ableism and ablest language. This is one reason Krip-Hop Nation is here among other reasons.

3) A pen becomes powerful in the hand of a community, activist and non-selfish journalist/artist. Rewriting our own story that leads to justice for our people.
