Born and raised on Chicago's South Side, Kayla Mahaffey (also known as KaylaMay) is quickly becoming one of the city's most sought-after artists with her unique blend of flat, cartoon elements with brilliant photorealism. Mahaffey's work gives voice to the unheard stories of contemporary youth and, as elucidated by the artist, "serves as a guide to bring hope back into our daily lives by cherishing each moment not in the mindset of an adult, but with the fresh eyes and imagination of a child.”

4:54 vs. 5:14. The mere threat of action mobilized a response in 20 minutes.
Strikes work. Withholding your labor works. Threatening working class mobilization works.
Let's get going.

People on here should know about the mutual aid app! It’s really growing in the Chicago area (created by some college students from the suburbs), and it’s also being used in ABQ, parts of Colorado, and in the Navajo Nation! Sign up folks in your area and start growing your network!

Chicago Tribune 4.01.21
Chicago police murdered a 13 year old Monday. His name was Adam Toledo.
The police and other white supremacists are using the argument that because he was with someone who was armed/that he was armed that he deserved to be chased and killed. No child should be hunted down and executed for being drawn into a gang.
If you want to know how to prevent this, you should’ve been paying attention to BLM the past year. Black and brown communities need adequate funding: schools, jobs, housing, healthcare. Police divest from Black and brown communities. Gang violence is not preventable through policing, but it is preventable through community investment ensuring economic security.
Defunding the police (as a means to abolish) and guaranteeing a decent standard of living to all people is the only way to end the violence our current system produces.

Lori Lightfoot is such a great example of how voters get duped into electing reactionary politicians hiding behind rainbow flags. She consistently used her lesbian identity to campaign. Then, once elected, used Chicago police to attack BLM and queer protesters. Can’t have a queer city if it’ll cost ‘em money.
