@Wewereseeds lol, my partner had the same reaction... i totally figured this was a joke and jabbing at the ridiculous preppers and portlanders who lose their shit whenever snow happens
@Wewereseeds this is too ridiculous not to be satire, right? :P

@Wewereseeds lol, we live in sad times for satire.
I'm deciding not to click through profile to find some anti-vaxxer MAGA fuck with a small bunker and the worst politics.
Going with sassy local with a sharp take on Portland foolishness :D
When you're on McLoughlin between Milwaukie and Oregon City you know you're in the redneck country.
It's changing lately especially in the city of Milwaukie proper but North Clackamas used to be definitely a right-wing stronghold.
(One of Milwaukie's city commissioners is a lawyer who works full-time for ICE.)
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
