@Setsuna 👋🏾 from Toronto
@Setsuna mew, i am in Ottawa :3
@Setsuna o hai
I’m in Ottawa, which *may* count but I moved here from Toronto.
@suetanvil Good enough for me! Nice to meet you!
I see you’re in Oakville. I grew up in Burlington right by the border.
@suetanvil Yeah, the body’s parents grew up in Oakville and Etobicoke; the mother’s parents have been here since ‘69. We just came from the West Coast and boy people in Oakville do not like seeing humans who are different. I’m growing my hair out and getting my bridge piercing removed until we can get back to the U.S.
We know of Burlington because it has a mall! Apparently there’s a queer support group that meets there, too.
Hi I'm also in Toronto 🌊
OrgSpace is a social media instance on the Mastodon network built by, and for, community organizers. We believe social media is a critical tool for political education, relationship building, mobilizing folks; however, facebook, twitter and other mainstream networks have opted time and again for profit and commercializing personal data regardless of the consequences.
Mastodon is a decentralized, but federated network. This means that when you join organizing.social, you get to interact with everyone you choose to on the wider Mastodon network; but you also get to see locally scoped content (from this instance) and help build a network particularly focused on building community and organizing those around us against oppressive systems and towards a society rooted in equity and global justice.
Setting up this instance has been a project of PDX Outreach for Justice, but we want this to be a global network of organizers and welcome moderators, admins, and engineers, and others who would be interested in contributing and shaping this process
