I've been informed that the day that food stamps refill can vary depending on your state -- just to be safe, you might want to check. Even better, ask someone you know who is or has been down on their luck. Check in with them. Make sure they've got supplies, aye?

The last week of any given month for anyone on SSI, SSDI, WIC, and/or food stamps is always rough. The amount paid helps a lot, but it's usually not enough for the whole month. We're used to tightening our belts. Please, give us poor and vulnerable first grocery dibs if you can.

Heads up for folks in the USA; If you're not having a food emergency, please don't go to the grocery store on April 1st and 2nd. Wait until the 3rd. People who are on food stamps get their accounts recharged on the first of the month, and have likely been running on fumes.

Buying year-long subscriptions or gift cards for your favorite small businesses is pretty critical right now. If done in mass, it can function like a grass roots bridge loan and make a huge difference in morale and bottom line. If you can, support support support. ♥️✌️

The first shipment of masks and coronavirus test kits to the US is taking off from Shanghai. All the best to our friends in America. 🙏

I’m a garbageman, I can’t work from home and my job is an essential city service that must get done. It’s a tough job, from getting up pre-dawn to the physical toll it takes on my body to the monotonous nature of the job, at times it’s hard to keep on going. Thread 1/3

I have a very close friend who’s a researcher studying public health at a major NGO, and he told me that this was THE week to practice as much social distancing as possible, even if you don’t have to go to work. I asked him to explain why. Sharing his answers w/ permission (1/x)

We do not deserve Katie Porter. She is a wonderful glitch in this timeline.

All workers deserve access to — now more than ever. Take meaningful action in the midst of this health crisis: Send a message to your representative and senators and urge them to pass paid sick leave now.
