Hey folx,

Sharing my stuff since that seems to be a popular thing to do around here. Maybe help people get to know me and whatnot.

I am a black leftist specifically subscribed to socialism. While I'm traveling I'm also doing mutual aid for people who are willing to trust a complete stranger. I was originally going to travel to make an abortion abortion mutual aid network between safe States like Minnesota and unsafe States like Texas etc. I let go of that idea when I couldn't raise enough money for an e-bike. Now I'm traveling for the sake of traveling, and I'm homeless because I don't have a guaranteed place to go back to when I get back to Minnesota.

I'm currently in Colorado Springs, and my next stop is Albuquerque!

I took a few pictures of dt Denver, Before I came down to Colorado Springs.

There are no restrooms in the big ass transit building and the cops love to harass the homeless, as usual. Colorado loves to shit on people that have already been shit on. They tried to ban feeding people in parks and shit.

A lot of places are arresting priests and pastors from church groups for feeding the homeless, for not having a permit, except the city refuses to grant the permit.

I likes your photos though.

With a lack of restrooms, there's probably excrement all over the streets. It's a common complaint in San Francisco, the result of no public restrooms being available to the homeless. What else can you expect?

I only spent less than A-day in Albuquerque on the 4th in Albuquerque unfortunately. The city got rid of a lot of the homeless and low income resources and in update the didn't update the government city website to reflect any changes. They also closed 2 parks that were campsites and resource hubs.

Absolutely disgusting for a once decent city.

A lot of the businesses I used to frequent are still open. Unfortunately, the hostel I was going to stay in closed due to covid and became apartments.

I've been in Flagstaff since yesterday afternoon and it's pretty chill. I'm ok with the shelter I'm staying in. It's got a lot going on both positive and negative.

It's still better than the other shelter I tried. hope cottage is faith based and they require residents to attend chapel twice a day in the cerfew is 6. They're way more interested in Indoctrinating people then they are getting people off the streets into department housing. I asked one of the staff what the success rate was for people going into transitional housing or housing from the shelter, and she didn't have an answer. For her position to know all the rules off the top of her head, she should definitely know that part, too.

Then Then when I asked if there was somewhere else I could go, they looked surprised that I asked even though they told me they couldn't take me in. They were even reluctant to tell me about the shelter they directed me, too. That was my 1st hint that they are probably trying to tie people into the cult.

One of the people at the shelter that I'm currently in said I have too much personality for hope cottage! If you have too much personality for a faith based shelter, it's probably a cult!

I'm going to I'm going to continue to look for a place so I don't have to stay in the shelter for too long, And figure out a down sizing process for the stuff that I absolutely need to take with me while I'm traveling the West Coast. I'm going to take my time in Flagstaff!

Flagstaff is my hometown. My Mom was forced to stay in Hope Cottage for about a year or so. That place sounded like a nightmare. She was totally brainwashed when she got out. Went from a 'religion is not the answer' person to a practicing Christian. Its because they forced prayer on everyone to obtain services. Food? Sermon. Help with getting stamps? Sermon. Abuse/substance abuse counseling? Sermon. Church like 3 days a week.

Any abused/high risk women's shelter that disguises itself as such, only to force religious beliefs on at risk, desperate people, who have no other choice, is fucking evil. Fuck that place. There are many people in flag who want to see that place shut down, but I don't think there is another 'at risk' Women's shelter in Flag right now.

Good you caught the aire of that place and avoided it.

There are many travelers that have ended up staying in flag. If you frequent Heritage Square and the downtown neighborhood you will probably find some people to chill with. There is the Family Food Center on the East Side in the Sunnyside neighborhood that is a decent soup kitchen. They feed like 3 times a week or so. Look 'em up.

Not alot of places for free gear, unfortunately....unless that has changed since I was last there.

Flag is like the blue bubble of AZ, but do not get on the eye of the Flagstaff PD. They are fucking terrible. They used to do some fucked up shit to houseless people there before the panhandling case was decided by the Supreme Court, along with the camping bans.

While flag can seem nice at first, there is still a huge amount of assholes whi hate the houseless...along with minorities and queer people. Just know that when venturing into different parts of town/northern AZ.

Try getting down to Sedona if you have the chance. And the Grand Canyon.

Hope cottage - I'll believe it! They didn't like that Google review that I left them completely calling them out, either!

They deserve to be shut down for how they treat people! I want to see them shut down as well!

Travelers staying - I believe that, and I see why. Flagstaff is a neat little town! I've already come across a few travelers that have decided to stay here long term. I've come across a few people that's specifically higher homeless people because they've experienced homelessness or they're very aware of the injustices towards the homeless. Homeless people are the most marginalized across any demographic and spectrum. Some people understand that and some people don't.

A civil justice attorney by the name of Wendy White started an organization called cats, and they have a branch off called pause where they pay homeless people Arizona minimum wage to pick up trash in a few spots in the city.

I've already come across heritage Square, and there were some cool people out there when it wasn't snowing. Now I'm gonna have to wait a few days because there's no decide to stick around.

I yell acab whenever I see the Flagstaff police department! Fuck all cops! I've already heard other people's horror stories about them. But the police are horrible, so I'm not surprised.

I've already come across one person that was totally comfortable comparing mentally ill unhoused people that have to self-medicate with drugs and alcohol to children grabbing too much Halloween candy in terms of "being too nice to the homeless." And she didn't care that she offended me.

I don't really have a good reason to go to Sedona or the Grand Canyon. Sedona is just a suburb, right? I talked to another black person that brought up Sedona and they didn't seem too much impressed by it so I'm not worried about it.

Thanks for the tips, homie!
