#OrishaLand now has a Wikipedia page 🎉

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orisha_L

At the moment, though, most of the third-party sources which could be used to expand the article are openly hostile to the Black autonomist project. Seems like the best way to expand it at the moment is to cite 400+1's own media and to create pages/articles/whatever elsewhere on the internet that are informative without the hostility. (Those also help people who don't wanna turn to Wikipedia or mega-corporate social media to learn about or keep up with the autonomous zone!!)

Non-Black fedi please consider this a direct appeal to show that you actually support Black liberation in a meaningful way. Please do something to help shore up this project's defenses so that it can survive, grow, & thrive rather than just be remembered after it's gone. If you would like to support in more direct ways than those suggested above or in the post please check out 400and1's social media to find out what they need most at this time.

Doing a repair for one of my partially sighted customers today, so here's your semi-regular to ask yourself if if your website supports high-contrast mode and do your social media posts and images online have captions? Are your display name and posts screen reader friendly? They're all small straightforward things that can be the difference between being inclusive or exclusive x

Question about #OrishaLand. Can any of you find a single article about it that isn't written by a cop when you search online? Very concerned about this, given that it's gotten a lot more attention from fascists, including local police, in the last few days. Can someone who's not fascist write about it? Can people work on a wikipedia page or something?

centrist exposure 

in the last several years it feels like there's a way higher percentage of profession-related images (album covers, workshop thumbnails, head shots, etc.) where black and brown femmes deadass look at the camera and refuse to smile in the slightest and i love it
