We are coordinating a group to restore life-saving medication access to a beloved organizer and support professional in our community who is in crisis.
We need your help!
Please comment on this post or send a private message to this page (tip: there is a button at the bottom right corner you can reach us with). We will include you in whatever way you need so that you can most fully participate.
Please share this post prolifically.
Thank you for your kindness, courage, and collaboration in the amazing resilience of this community.
More about the group that is working now, in need of participants:
We are helping one another learn how to engage diplomatic outreach to businesses and organizations producing resources (such as medications) that are needed at intersections of violent multi-marginalization where they are immediately life-saving and provide substantial community relief.
Our process is focused to catalyse greater awareness, build trust, and establish ongoing relationships so that support and resourcing can flow more easily through all our communities.
Our efforts employ marketing professionalism and human-centric networking expertise where it occupies the same space as sustainable community nourishment and respect for living beings.
These skill sets directly benefit ANY and ALL income-generating projects.
If you want to practice professional skills of any kind (hit us up with your brainstorm, bet we’ll say yes), this is an excellent opportunity to volunteer on behalf of a community member in need and simultaneously increase your own inherent capacities to achieve goals like these.
* Please share this post widely and repeatedly in every way, including multimedia versions as needed and copy+paste.
* We crucially need people on Telegram messenger, our network disability aid. If you can install and use it, you do us a profound service by communicating with us there.
* We crucially need EXISTING PROFESSIONALS in and around our networks to recognize and get involved with these efforts, as all our active members currently are severely disabled and experiencing physical extremity.
* We need people able to type; think in numbers; use a business brain; make simple phone calls with scripts; send emails; make web pages; express their support in their own authentic way; cheer us on; signal boost with stickers and emoticons; other needs also, not yet included on this list (do suggest).
* We need people to care that this is happening, to engage with this effort consistently, to know that when we work together none of us are helpless, and to center the fact that we have known solutions — right now, immediately.
Please help us implement these solutions right away by reaching out to us.

Intuitive Community Juice is establishing necessary kitchen access, support, equipment, and safe, organic, whole food ingredients to multiply-marginalized, severely disabled people, especially in communities of color affected by environmental contaminants.
In the context of our Intuitive community network, this resourcing radically reduces and reverses racial health disparities across all communities.
As survivors and their families are strengthened by safe food after debilitative injury and illness, they gain economic independence and regenerate new and better (and as you know, urgently needed) resources for teaching cross-community cultural competence and racial justice.
Intuitive Public Media stands ready to help survivors build their own professional platforms at request, to amplify and respectfully interconnect their lived expertise across the Intuitive community network — especially where they can create ongoing income streams.
We recommend this:
Restore self-led recovery, creative expression, and economic freedom to communities of trauma and hardship.

Thank you to everyone who has been so patient and supportive in regards to my severe neurological effects on Facebook.
I work very hard to cultivate a sense of normative narrative for those who need it, which means that — every time I show up in public, especially if I’m using Facebook — I am minimizing and hiding severe symptoms to a profound degree.
Doing this work makes me much sicker, and at the same time, I will not survive without establishing a reliable personal income stream.
(To underscore this last statement: I do not have *any* reliable income stream and very rarely receive donations. On a daily basis, I am without crucial emergency supplies, safe food, clothes, shoes, health interventions, and disability aids while too ill to care for myself, and frequently do not have money to access the most basic solutions to prevent suffering.)
If you’re hearing from me in public, I am almost always *faking* greatest possible function, struggling through physiological severity to make it happen. The moment I go offline I am much sicker than when I started.
When you hear from me in public or when you think of me, please check on me.
If you don’t hear from me in public on a given day, please check on me.
The symptom cascades I experience from daily exertions are extreme. Without support, my body can die of complications within days.
I really, really, really appreciate people who check on me.
If you value the work I’ve been doing through personal and cultural apocalypse, please consider sharing a little of what you have here: https://Intuitive.community/donations
If you want to help in a non-financial way, please read this page, participate (please and very thank you!), or give me feedback if you are able: https://Intuitive.pub/support
Thank you for courageous heart-lights shining. I am feeling it — in miraculous ways, it is sustaining.
Intuitive Public Radio is an Internet-based public health art and advocacy project that I have been working on with international friends and colleagues for a number of years.
One of the things we have done each day is to imagine together the lives of microbes.
The lives of microbes and our own lives are so interconnected — especially for those of us who are aware of how we and our microbes eat together.
Understandings of microbially healing foods and safe fermentation practices strengthen our communities and those we have been reaching out to, especially at this challenging time.
To talk about this on a public platform with kindness, solidarity, and a healthy dose of whimsy (you must know!) is restorative to all of us including and especially many very scared people and whole communities suffering in pain or confusion.
My own healing journey has required deep emergency education about fermenting every possible food I can ferment.
A crucial part of restoring my function after digestive failure has been in building relationships with the populations of tiny people in the cultures I am fermenting — friends and neighbors to me, sharing food with me, sharing their lives with me even invisibly.
This food based relationship building has also been a relief in prolonged isolation and a means of recovering from trauma, all of which many people are newly experiencing.
In community, when we imagine together what we cannot physically see, people who are struggling find they can learn and develop new skill sets more easily.
This is a leverage point I have used to come back from neurological injuries a number of times, and has proven life-saving for us to remember on a daily basis.

Wartime medicinal kitchens save the lives of environmental disaster survivors every day.
We are building inclusive, accessible, intuitive, community-serving medicinal kitchens based on the emergent specifications shared by members of our communities.
With the help of Intuitive Public Radio, we are bringing this resource to your neighborhood — asking you and the people you care about what makes your lives better, what foods heal your family, and what you need in your kitchens.
(Hungry? Feel like you need to say something? You’re invited.)
There’s something about discussions about caring for one another and eating together — commensality — that captivate us these days.
These two things go together.
What is it about them?
The desire to be closer to our food and closer to one another seems driven by necessity; we are sorting out catastrophes of misinformation…
We are regularly put through painful misunderstandings, exacerbated by trauma affecting all participants.
But when we raise a focus on caring and commensality, something shifts.
We notice that when we prioritize both effective communication and effective digestion, we have different and better outcomes than before.
We don’t feel so much like we’re dying; we share food with one another, we build understandings with one another, we notice a new resilience despite physical duress.
