Feb. Luna Ride Recap–WHO’S STREETS? OUR STREETS!!

…I think we all had a mutual understanding that these mujeres were our neighbors, our sisters, ourselves.

When Sunhands brought the idea to us to dedicate the February Luna ride to the recent kidnappings and murder of two young womyn from our communities, I think we all felt it in our gut that this was the right impulse. In a very eerie way, I think we all had a collective sense that these mujeres were our neighbors, our sisters, ourselves. And just like that we began to organize the resources at our disposal, each and every Ova contributing to the ride in their own special way. “Who’s Steets? Our Steets!” became the mantra representing our unrest and our desire to create safe communities FOR ALL TO FLOURISH… ❤ mm
