Survivorship and disability: Organizing for liberation togetherSex and disability. When is the last time you talked about that? We live in an ableist culture that often infantilizes people with disabilities and denies their sexuality. We live in a culture where we do not have meaningful sex education for young people with disabilities. We also live in a culture that turns away from thinking about sex or sexuality in long-term care facilities or with elder-care facilities.
Language access as justice: Supporting survivors as helpers and leaders in our communtiesAPI Chaya is building on its Natural Helpers program and creating the Multilingual Natural Helpers Program. This development is part of a broader shift to improve language access, not just for clients, but for all multilingual people – including survivors of violence, folks with disabilities, low-wage workers, and workers in prison – as part of our vision to end violence.
At first, filmmaker Jessica M. Thompson’s feature debut The Light of the Moon plays out like a familiar vigilante or rape-revenge story: Bonnie (Stephanie Beatriz of Fox sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine) has her seemingly perfect life (handsome boyfriend, successful job as an architect, nice apartment in a hip area of Brooklyn) shattered when she’s brutally raped by a stranger while walking home from a bar late at night.
Here's why I think the #GOP didn't block the #NetNeutrality vote: they have 2018 + 2020 in mind. They can make it so it's difficult to register to vote online + suppress vital information about candidates + will target communities of color. Just you watch. #SaveNetNeutrality
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
