Hi I'm Rich, gonna be mostly reblogs and complaining on here

 

(Need) Couch - Seattle - Urgent, One Week Left

transhousingnetwork:

Hello everyone, I am in a bit of a bind here.

I moved back to Seattle from Portland in May to take on a job that the employer didn’t feel that she needed to pay me, I obviously left and was never paid, I am 30 years old, Male to Female Trans* and am looking for people accepting of that to read this post and help if you can.

I came to stay with someone who has been really cool but that time is nearing it’s end (Around August 1st) as well as originally agreed to when I came here, right now I am staying in Bremerton and looking for work in Seattle, as I have no interest or desire to stay over here, and there is no transit system not having a car so it’s not an option at all, I have a 2 mile walk to the ferry from here and it’s killing me, I can’t imagine doing that on a daily commute even if I could afford it! I don’t have any family and am pretty much boned after this place runs out, shelters are not an option for me due to a personal trauma.

The commute from Seattle is too much money and has stalled my job search out minus one or two promising second interviews coming up, I am getting 3-4 calls a day on a good day and believe I will have work very very soon as it behind moving is my #1 goal, my job search is literally frozen unless I can get out of here this week or next.

The reason I am coming here is because I am broke, I am asking some kind soul who lives back on the “mainland” Seattle and it’s suburbs if they have a couch I can crash on for 1-2 months max while I finish this job search, I am a quiet and confident person so I know I will get through this but getting out of Bremerton after a 3 hour commute to Bellevue yesterday for a job I may get was too much, I could even pay a little once I do start working within reason if you so desire, but I just need a boost to get out of here and be able to get to interviews, 8 dollars a pop via ferry is not going to work anymore.

If you know someone with a couch to crash on, an extra small room or a corner to crash in for a while please message me, I have my own food budget and am usually toiling away on my laptop searching for work or playing an occasional game, I can also be a friend if you like as I don’t know anyone here and really want to change that.
Thanks for reading!

Right now I’m uninsured (Medicaid won’t come through for me until August 1st at the earliest) and in debt from the last time I bought hormones, so I would appreciate any help I could get. Even just a few bucks would be greatly appreciated.

Someone at the Associated Press must have come in to work still drunk from last night because they accidentally tweeted out the truth, but the mistake was quickly discovered and they apologized.

i recently reached $5,000 on my surgery fundraiser! that is almost 17% to my goal! I still have nearly 25k to go to be able to afford my facial feminization surgery (which is necessary for my well-being). 

I am actually starting to look in to some of the practical aspects of doing this now (like, what surgeon I am going to see, where I am going to stay, et cetera) which is an amazing thing to experience after being despondent for years over the idea I would never be able to afford this on my own.

if you can easily afford to spare a couple dollars please do that (if all of my followers donated just $10 I would have more than enough to get this surgery) and if not please continue to signal boost my posts about this. Thank you so much 👼

i like it when people yell at me for having a surgery fundraiser because it reminds me to reblog posts about my surgery fundraiser. and as you all know, i love being reminded of stuff

Israeli Soldier Leaks Accounts of Revenge Attacks Against Civilians by Troops in Gaza - International Middle East Media Center

Eran Efrati reports, “Soldiers in two different units inside Gaza leaked information about the murdering of Palestinians by sniper fire in Shuja’eyya neighborhood as punishment for the death of soldiers in their units. After the shooting on the Israeli armored personnel carriers, which killed seven soldiers of the Golani Brigade, the Israeli army carried out a massacre in Shuja’eyya neighborhood.

 Let’s remember that 120 Palestinians died that night in Shejaia. This was no accident. They weren’t collateral damage. They were the targets.

People Power Movement joins fight for real affordable housing as tenants organize to stop rent hikes in Kingsbridge Heights, the Bronx.

New York City - In Kingsbridge Heights, where Wall Street real estate developers are fighting over what will be the world’s largest ice skating rink center in the Kingsbridge Armory, local residents are fighting their own battles against rent hikes. Tenants in 2800 University Avenue, just a few blocks from the Armory, are taking a stand against rent increases in their building. They have been supported by the Kingsbridge Heights Neighborhood Improvement Association (KHNIA) and the People Power Movement-Movimiento Poder Popular (PPM-MPP) to organize a tenant meeting in the building lobby. Al Chapman, President of the KHNIA, and Jason Javier, Vice Chair of the PPM-MPP, led the discussion with the aid of English to Spanish translation.

Tenants of the building were in disbelief after being notified that their rent would go up $11.69 per room, including kitchens and living rooms. Most tenants could not believe that a landlord who had provided scanty repairs would be requesting them to pay more rent. In addition, the building has a number of code violations, including a missing side entrance gate and broken side door entrance that have yet to be fixed. The meeting allowed for tenants to voice their opinions and opposition to the rent hike proposal, and to meet others who have lived in the building for decades, some of which have never seen a rent increase before.

This rent hike is due to alleged “Major Capital Improvements” (MCI) to the building, which has recently surfaced throughout the city. The MCI request also includes a permanent rent increase, meaning that tenants will continue to pay higher rent even after the “improvement” costs are paid for. According to sources in the area, 2800 University Avenue is not the only building to be hit by an MCI rent increase. Many in the community feel that this phenomenon is closely related to the changes being made to the towering Kingsbridge Armory in the community. Tenants in buildings like 2800 University Avenue are preparing to fight MCI’s, as well as future potential annual rent increases by the NYC Rent Guidelines Board.

During the meeting, tenants themselves elected representatives in their building to be President, Vice President, and Secretary, and essentially created their first tenant association in over a decade. More importantly, all of these representatives are women of color! The new Tenant Association is demanding for an extension time for a proper response to the notice, and preparing to compile reasons against the MCI rent increase. A few tenants have already responded by refusing to pay higher rent. However, due to the language barrier, most could not understand the MCI notice, nor the part indicating that English is the only language allowed. What is more, some received the MCI notice later than others.

Given that many of the residents do not speak English and that the demographic of the building is majority Black and Latino and working-class, PPM-MPP says that these are racist transgressions that allow landlords to unjustly push people of color out of the area. These acts add to the ever-present issue of gentrification in our communities. This battle can only be achieved through collective action, and tenants in 2800 University Avenue are demonstrating the potential for a movement against gentrification led by the people. Tenants are urged to take action on this injustice!

LANDLORD, LANDLORD, THIS WE SWEAR, WE’RE NOT GOING ANYWHERE!

NO MORE RENT HIKES! ! !
