House votes to avert rail strike, impose deal on unions

"Congress is attempting to head off a national rail strike. I'm Ben Thomas with the latest. Members from both parties are pushing for it. Michelle fischbach, Republican of Minnesota. Our country's economy can't handle a strike that reports would say would cost $2 billion a day. Democrat Jim mcgovern of Massachusetts. Commuter rails that carry tens of thousands of people to work each day would no longer run. There will be shortages of nearly every kind of food in our grocery stores. The result, the a's are two 90, the nays are one 37, the joint resolution is passed. The bill would bind rail companies and workers to a deal brokered by the Biden administration in September, but voted down by four of the 12 unions involved, representing roughly 115,000 employees. The unions have threatened to strike if an agreement can't be reached before a December 9th deadline. Democrats aligned with labor have criticized Biden's move to intervene and House speaker Nancy Pelosi responded by adding a second vote, adding 7 days per year of paid sick leave for rail workers, a key issue. That measure passed by a much narrower margin two 21 to two O 7 with Republicans overwhelmingly opposed. It now goes to the Senate and White House press secretary karine Jean Pierre says a bill averting a rail strike needs to reach his death by this weekend. As for that second Bill, he does not support any bill or amendment that will delay getting this bill to his desk by this Saturday. Ben Thomas, Washington.

Bills, Vikings and Cowboys score Thanksgiving wins.

"AP sports, I'm Mike Reeves, it was a busy Thanksgiving Day in the NFL with three games on the schedule, the bills were in Detroit to meet the Lions, correspondent Denny cap, was there and has this report. Tyler bass boots a 45 yard field goal with two seconds left as the bills hang on to beat the Lions 28 25 on Thanksgiving Day, passes heroics from 8 necessary after he missed an extra point late in the fourth quarter, which allowed Lions kicker Michael batchley to sign the game on a 51 yarder with 23 seconds left. Sometimes you do everything that you write and sometimes you just get unlucky. We got unlucky, but we have a great group of guys that support me and have my back and I was able to reset and focus on the next big. Josh Allen put bounced into position to win the game, orchestrating a 48 yard drive spurred by a 36 yard pass the Stefan Diggs. Bob Stephens was on hand to watch the cowboys host the Giants. The Dallas Cowboys rallied to defeat the New York Giants 28 20 on Thanksgiving, overcoming a 13 7 deficit with 21 unanswered points in the second half. Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy says the cowboys time of possession keyed the win. Excellent division win game we had to have and I love the fire team and really what tried to break their method. And one thing I'm talking about is controlling the ball was a big focus for us today. That Prescott threw for 261 yards and two touchdowns the Dalton Schultz, CD lamb caught 6 for one O 6, while Daniel Jones threw for two 28 in a touchdown for the Giants. In Minnesota Kirk Cousins finds Adam Thielen in the end zone with 9 34 left to give the Vikings a 33 26 win over the Patriots, it was cousins third scoring strike of the game, just a phenomenal catch by him. I thought that the way he's able to catch that football, keep his feet in bounds. It just says a lot about his ability. One of the things he does really well is his body control and he's just overall athleticism and he showed it there. A great play by him. In college football, Mississippi state gets passed almost 24 22 in college troops in top 5 action number one North Carolina and number three Kansas are winners. I'm Mike Reeves, AP sports.

Caller: Pres. Trump Should Address Election Integrity

"Hi Todd. Thanks for the great job. You're doing on all of this. My take is that a lot of our listeners may included, we want to be Christian nice. You know, it's like Minnesota nice. We're Christian nice. And a lot of us can't even conceive of the manipulation of the vote that's going on. We can't even conceive of it. We don't think that way. And I worked on Wall Street for a number of years. And I was exposed to software. And I know that code can be written and algorithms can be written to change just one decimal point. And you can manipulate numbers on these machines. The machine has to go Mike lindell is right. We can have the most perfect candidate. We can speak to the truth. We can be Christian nice. We can have presentable wonderful people and all they have to do is change a decimal point on the software and own my gosh, Katie Hobbs, the carry Lake by 1%, isn't that amazing how close the race is. I think, frankly, when Trump talks tonight, I want to hear him talk about electoral integrity. I want him to clean up the vote. Not the vote, the electoral trust. And I want to see the machines gone. If people are interested in this, look at Mike lindell's website, he was following all the election and he's got literal proof as the vote totals were coming in and out of Edison, New Jersey, where they were tallied. They were actually moving the numbers up and down.

I didn't know about any of this either. So anyone listening. Who's interested in doing this type of work. It really just takes getting involved. In whatever capacity and a lot of times. marginalized communities are shut out of these spaces. And that's definitely intentional. Whether it be on a subconscious level or unconscious level. So if you if you have the energy just put yourself out there and someone is going to you and someone is going to hold your hand and guide you to what you will later on do like that. I wouldn't be here without all these other people And i wouldn't be here without the opportunity to even attend a university attend the university of minnesota soul. I always think about how grateful i am to have those mentors and to also be mentors for others. Now that i can be one thing that is really important to me is Talking about like health and health insurance and mental health on university campuses so we did a lot of events Through the student board regarding mental health we had entire campaign for it called pledge to prioritize And what frustrates me the most. Because i went through. This personally is bolton mental. Health can be a wonderful resource if they had the funding right if they have the resources so like themselves so. There aren't enough There aren't enough therapists. Social workers there to be with all students how off how as often as they need to be met and on top of that too one thing. That frustrates me is in general with health at pointing. Not all insurances are in network so this is something that i want to focus on even on a larger scale. A guy just all universities to have this. And i'm definitely going to look into it. When i go to grad school but my insurance which i am from minnesota. I was born and raised here. i have mayo clinic insurance and through medica and that wasn't in network you of them so i ended up having to pay so much out of pocket for having one initial meeting with the therapist right and then i had to go off campus for that and of course we have great transportation. But it's like now. I'm going off campus because one. It's my insurance network too. It's not like. I could even get an appointment within the next three months with anyone pointed and it's not any of their faults. It's just the fact that that is so underfunded compared to other things that we have like whether it be athletics or you name it I think with how much renovating the us doing. I feel like they could spare..

It's been a process involving lots of people who are working together to kind of weave the foundation. So if one person is you know others can take off and then if one person is Overwhelmed than the other support the official said he was neuroscience And was your interest in mental health before neuroscience or like other result of near sent. I think it was before neuroscience definitely interest there. Okay so could you tell us about the before learning on your own mental health or emotions or trauma and then learning about it in this concrete way. What things what changing. What new things. What perspectives clicking. What ways you just like trauma. What things kind of shifted and changed and became more meaningful or became lessening for. Yeah so. When i was younger i went through. Something really dramatic and my response to. It was kind of like anger against people against situation. And i felt horrible almost every day because i could see people in my life like my parents. My brother making the effort to kind of feel happier like kind of have these joyful experiences by their idea was if we can if we can help her have fun time. She'll forget about that trauma like that's a guy ends way of sometimes by just don't remember that's how i grew up thinking so i kept thinking will the reason. I'm not feeling joy in what i'm doing. I was like winning. Science competitions was. I was proud of. I was like learning new skills. I was doing really well in school. But i kept thinking all these great things are happening to me. I feel joy for million our at the max right back. Go back to being neutral. Went back to just being angry. So i kept thinking. If it's up to me. Just forget something that maybe. I'm forcing myself to remember. Something played the victim. Because i i need some type of attention or anything and it didn't feel like that for a long time but also of control over my emotions. I was angry when i didn't wanna be angry. I will the noida sad when like good things were happening in. Everyone's making an effort. I feel bad because as bad to not. Your child is like really painful. For parent A broader sibling. Anyone there in seoul. But then i started taking psychology classes so i came back super interested in psychology class on morality and kind of decisions that we make those first year course and i love the topic. 'cause it wasn't just a blind like year. You forgive our you. Don't forget it felt like it took a lot of situations in also in my way of thinking about trauma into not only like yes or no ends like that gray area in between of why do i remember certain aspects of my trauma not registered aspects. How does that affect the way that i utilize how i interact with people. Do i go into situations like this person is just like the person who caused by trauma. Do i feel. There's something different when i learned about neuroscience is when i thought just a sense of control. 'cause we burn annoys exercising were weightlifting in like doing pilates and he was like super happy as while he was like that. That's just what you like to do. An and alert neuroscience is tied between being able to set goals when it comes to fitness exercise. And seeing you reach seeing yourself reach those goals yes and will kind of re learn how to feel joy realize i connection because no one no one knew it. Everyone is exercise is good for your health but like how can you explain that how to control. I just felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulder. I think i stop blaming myself for like a lot of my emotions and learn how to realize yes. I feel a russian anger belaid. I can rationalize that. As i know why it's happening. Es percents fear different scenario. I can use this fear. Should i be fearful innocent or can i rationalized Calm down radio. And i think over the biggest thing elect neuroscience that the brain is very protective if vish basis some type of trauma or stress. It doesn't wanna face it like again. So finds little cues that could show like oldest. Be dangerousness could you. In some way or this person could xyz the pools from your past experiences so indefinite filling. Nothing's zayed your anger. That i had was. Because i was in the same space of where my trauma happened and so adds a learn to rewrite to tell myself like that trauma isn't still happening. It's like yes. Teach myself had a rewrite what those spaces met for me. So home was always a space. That was kind of weird. Because i liked love family by didn't like the physical space in but believe weren't able to move who couldn't afford it relearning. What home meant for need learning to kind of give to those author neuroscience. So you're my four years by being evacuated was under southerners. I don't think of goodness. I think but very personal mission than i e it through and all of that is around teaching myself to see joy joint experience it he does say that so happy event but can they. Can they feel that joy themselves. Experience neuro chemical wise. You know just that. Russia light joel. I think we don't ask ourselves enough like yet. I'm happy but like in my experiencing joy or state of being and so. I learned a lot about that. Just related to feel joy. I think mineral science. Open the door for me. Psychology also opened by floods neuroscience. Really kinda through the door. And i did. Yeah the key insights. Oh thank you so much for staying. Jc a few things come to mind. And maybe you might want to touch on one of them. Were all of them thing one. How would someone go through this process without lending your sense. How what are the ways or other channels are there people to be able to realize Or this is happening and for you. This cost of steady allowed. You learn about yourself and understand. What's happening with within your brain. Because i guess you letting your brain but also your emotions and your experiences in your trauma and working through even your your own wellness. How do you feel others can have this journey without the nearest hand aspect. What other ways do you feel like could feel that gap or help them that process that selena third line because people always ask me like what are you studying you know. How are you doing it but then my neuro science research papers are even for me.

I guess from behind the scenes when we were thinking about what resistance and kyle is. But i'm curious to hear from you. What does that what you let me see that. Yeah i think that. Also that when i think about resistance in color i think about solidarity of communities color anti like within that solidarity. There's a lot of learning and learning to happen unpack a little bit on what she mean on the learning. What do you think we've learned. That is bronx i mean. I guess there's a lot but tell me a little bit of what some of the things that come to mind when you see that. Yeah i think this year. There's the in an emphasis on Unlearn anti blackness within the asian communities. Because of what's been happening over course of this year and the past year. And so i feel like you can't really be in solidarity if you aren't getting rid of on past contests and pass believes that are internalized. Mom have internalized through years and years of education or other types of learning that you received from other people you know for sure misinformation i guess also stereotypes prejudice missing yeah misinformation stereotypes on other stuff that internalized and sometimes i feel like you don't even realize that your die..

"I hope you're sticking through the whole series because we have a meaning people still lined up and for this officer. We are inviting maria to join the conversation so a little bit about her. She is a second generation american women who is a first generation college student pursuing psychology and she is currently in the math narrow scholars program doing research for the summer at the university of minnesota twin cities where she is also going to school. In addition she's also part of the transnational feminist organization called the firm where she's learning how to organize a fight against oppression and all of its forms. So we'll maria you thanks for having me here. Yeah welcome wilco To start with. We've asked this question to everyone comes on on the show just to hear what different people have to say. What does the term resistance men to you and then if we stay in color resistance in color does that change the definition of what. What does that sound like to you. Yeah so when. I think about resistance originally. I kind of just think about how i've gone through struggles by when thinking about resistance in color. I realized that when i go through struggles. I don't go through them alone and i have people that are with me and a lot of those times. It's really just people of color that you are backing me up. So i think that resistance really has a strong sense of solidarity with other people especially people of color because we go through things that you know. Some people without colored might not be able to understand and so resistance. It's something i've always. I'm always learning about. it's never. it's not something you just know. It's like something you kind of learn through time and you gain with other people and just as a community. It's something that you have together. Ince fishing. I really love that answer in going back to some of the things that we said in your introduction of your work because student as a researcher How do you think identities have impacted your work or any of your passions like are they Impacting you in any way in terms of like you being i shun among american woman excetera. Yes so when thinking about my identities i would say like being version has been a big part of a life alot. Although fortunately i've been able to their siblings to guide me through college and many of its from my sisters and so that's where i feel very passionate about feminism. Just because through all my life my sisters have been the ones to guide me through many of like my obstacles. And i just feel like in this society. It's really hard to kind of be alone. Women of color in so having just more women of color to back you up guide you through. Things has been super impactful and just has to be more resistant. india and being second Among women it's tough among cultures. Kind of cousin. Times is very patriarchal. And i'm very much taught to not have a voice..

He says organizers student.

This podcast series has been made possible by the fund for safe communities grant of the minneapolis foundation to nami. Minnesota's multicultural youth advisory board. Welcome and thank you for listening. Welcome to this week's episode of resistance in color. My name is theory and guests. Today is tracy who is recent neuroscience gadget for macalester college the going to macalester college. She grew up he some in texas with our family that comes from kumasi ghana and she loves to learn how people develop and change their identity or sense of self and studied near science because of interest in mental health children and trauma. Thank you for joining stacey. Thank you for having me excited to talk about. Children mental aiding related to kuku jc. Our podcast i said it's called resistance in color and i'm curious what you think what you think when you hear that. What does the resistance in columbia into your sound to you. I think roundabout. I go straight identity in the ways that we kind of view ourselves as present ourselves. I didn't color oftentimes corleones. Arrays are like your skin color things like that more than that. It's like the experience you have with in that any any black is diverse we to think of this one narrative and yet there's so many sites to blackness and replicated by like where we live where we grew up norm here. Our families our community. So there's not just one like individualistic view of flatness existence. I think how can we kind of go against kind of those. Stereotypes are those narratives. Zimbabwe's npr own true cells that ties of course back the mental health. You know how you yourself how you present yourself how other people view you affects. How you feel affection Defense like just your thoughts. And so i always think of resistance as less of like constantly fighting something more ways to kind of disappear south in the space or time. That doesn't see your net light. I think that super aren't they have good college. You know it's super hard to ask someone on to beat them. So why does that mean exactly is on super simple and yet. It's like super super hard to do that. Assumes that you know who you are your static in some rain. So i always find asking you. It's hard but i think it's something we have to ask ourselves to do. More often swiping resistance. I think of asking ourselves to ourselves. Even notes. renominated. Oh asking himself to be self and i guess even if and then the answer to that is i don't know who myself and it's me taking the time to then discover what that means or discover who pities and what tracy legs and the things about. That's a good. What has i'm curious. Then as to you mentioned identities you mentioned knowing yourself you mentioned natives against i guess the school or what other people would have defined. You is all have decided. Those things are resisting all that. Tell us about what you feel like. Your journey of resistance has been like oh has looked like and that could be at any phase of your life or whichever identities that you want You feel like have been most coming into to discover who you are and especially going into this posterity twenty. I think the biggest identity nam answering a question for you know. I want to hear from you and especially what it looks. Like in twenty twenty. That is a really good question right. Think about my own identity. I guess i grew up in texas but my oath. Everyone in my family's from done so that's like my roots are very strong ideas when it comes to like gender might what warmer also do versus men in those type of roles as well so i grew up seeing a narrative ghanaian fashion growing up in a in a an estate or lead. Just a work in the. Us were those roles are pronounced but not as much as they are in cultural right. Yes i didn't growing up. And i'm the only daughter my family and i'm the youngest journalist so it a lot of the duties of white cleaning and cooking and all that stuff kind of fell on me and it was always a struggle because actually enjoy doing those things i love. I like love cleaning. I love like baking how my parents always like. I'm the youngest of the family and can contribute financially. But like i can wash car you know as i grew up in. I saw that that was what the traditional woman lake was made to do it kind of became difficult. Because i was do. I like these things. Because i'm third. Because general jenner generous. Jim with interest in it. Yes our new because like a mix between me accepting generals and kind of locking myself into this is what a woman is. Yes dallas always hard. Because i'm gonna came to mcallister and even this past twenty year me living alone. I felt like. Do i do these things because i feel like you know as a woman swam supposed to do. But it's like.

"This path for me on. I don't know. I don't really know how fell into it. I always been a person who has struggled with and struggled with my purpose. Because i've always understood for myself that i really wanna help people. I remember as a freshman in high school and my mom just like all like you need to figure out what you wanna do that. At all. And i i just. I just want to help people. I don't know what i wanna do. I just want to help you. And i just remember feeling so much people and he always wanting to understand and know how people feel and know how people's days are because for me. I don't know. I care about people a lot and i think that's kinda how it kind of leads me into the work. I don't know what you wanna do. Sometimes some people you know are born and they like. I know exactly what i wanna do for me. I just i didn't know. And i didn't have a lot of direction and a lot of role models that looks like me or role models in my life. Who did the things that. I felt like i wanted to do so. I just felt like i never. I don't really know what i wanted to do. I really wanted to actually lead into college Because high school yeah. I didn't do anything really. I was like i was really shy and i was really scared. I did not believe myself. I did not feel like. I was worthy right. Because i felt like being in a school that was predominantly white and i honestly felt really i just felt like i belong and i always was so afraid to speak english because i grew up speaking with because i wrote my grandparents and i think that's a blessing on but i was always very self conscious about how i processed things and how it came out in english and ohio. Writing really helped me. Because i was really bad for me at that time. I felt like it was really hard for me to process things verbally but writing things was an i l. Always known that. I was reading just came easily to me but i didn't understand that i was good. You go yeah. Everyone's getting writing. And then all. And then i just like that's how i express myself through writing. I used to keep journals all the time as a kid writing stuff game matter. My brother light You know and once they hit college was when i met a friend and he was actually the person that kind of pushed out of my shell and i actually did my first spoken word and he was also really creative person and so he he re introduced me to like journaling and like writing and and i think that's what i felt like. I had the confidence to like being artists. And then once. I did my first spoken word and it was For a day. And i just felt like you know i think i could. I can do this. You know. And i and i just kept doing it. I was so nervous. Y'all like i was so nervous. I stayed on. I four like practicing it and with me like fell asleep. And i was like myself like until four. Am in the that was like eighty am and so but ever since that day just continue doing it. And i felt. I just continued to come. We're confident where i started going. I danced for three years. And i started really late but a lot of people who washed. They're all like did use the dance like as a kid. I'm like no. I just started when i was like twenty one. They're like super surprised.

"Time. I also want to add that if anyone who's interacting with a community that is not that has any type of diversity inclusion your company or your organization should represent that as well not absolutely make sense for a bunch of straight white men to go into like different parts of the world. That don't have those people as a majority of their population and tried to talk to them or communicate with them and understand that because they can't because they don't have their yeah is so beautifully put like a course. You're the company sugarless like the population demographics. That's all i'm saying. Yeah yeah yeah. Yeah and i think you say culprit but i think actually even in the in the nonprofit sector to some of these things out as as well. I worked in a nonprofit. And i think you you see that as well and i wonder i wonder now because direct female. I wonder if that changes how with into your research. I would be curious to find out what that looks like too. I wanted to go back to something that you had said earlier. And we live the capitalism for hanging on pause for a little bit. It's much now lives. And so focusing on the different ways that you identify and how those become relevant in different context. We have an n. Listening this podcast is a product of a multicultural. Young adults advisory board With non minnesota and one of the things that this board and i guess hopes to do is have conversations are admitted to health that in many ways in line with what. You're talking about intersection. -ality looking at mental health through different cultural lenses because mental health and expenses about mental health and identities are not the same with different cultural groups so looking at that and thinking about experiences with your identities and with how you feel those different identities impact you or your you end or your communities mental.

"In recovery is a life long journey. I've always been long. Term recovery lay it it is not become a oh now recovered. I'm a norm. Your whatever people say terms that recovery is a lifelong journey. Like you're gonna be in recovery recovery forever. And i'm okay with that because now i know how to navigate a half funny recovery and amazing thing. They've recovery of being a mom to my kids and the best that i can be all these roles that i have among my family dynamic and i'm still be okay without without you know chemicals in my body. You know the other intoxicants in these things. That influence my decision making in the past. So i can so busy saying Middle cleansing my heart. You know having great intention that nia aspects on really purifying myself You know so. So yeah i hope that makes sense. So does the. I have a question. How does your family and community reacted to your reaching out for recovery and attaining recovery. What's how what was that process. The second part of that question is when did they do that. Really helped to. Did they do something that really helped you. And if they did what was it yes yes so and the beginning Because of all the years that i've just stayed suffering because You know the big mine everything. I have to get honest so once. I got to get honest and open the door for so many more so like telling my family. I'm going public letting you know. I'm i'm going because at first they will you gotta to heal. What can we do to help you. he's stopped doing this case out doing it. I didn't know because addiction becomes so huge. I mean it became a big over of me. And i didn't know how a like a big hole and i didn't know how to climb out of it and i thought that was the first part was this acceptance peas and and being honest with myself and and saying i i need some help. How can i. How can i get some help. Although i knew. Because i've worked in programmed in the past and i knew what it was like. Being a professional and now the goal was switched to being a client in that hartberg lay. Oh my god. Oh my client. Has this move away from that. I'm telling my family and my community. There's been a lot of positive feedback. People are like you know. We're so happy you know like your your jabbie. He can do like you are an ambassador for us. What can we do to support you. So it's amazing. It's been really an amazing journey. And then why family what my family did helped me was accepted me and they also said we love you no matter what do what you need to do for yourself and your recovery and and. I want to let people know doing this. Work is not easy. It's not easy so we must also have some self care and self care is so important like We will be able to take a step back and look in and say you know what i gotta make. Sure i go to my own therapy appointment. I have one coming up next friday Make sure that. I'm on top of being what i need to do for myself like taking away like leaving work at work shutting the computer off and all of that like you know everything so that you're able to go for a walk. Hang out with your kids. Do some fun activities of other also important part of my recovery journey because so care is also important to so families In my community the hoyle hoyer man in mahato in early here in america and in like that one language you know so i could kind of started thinking somali but like i heuer's us all important like hoyos mothers they some mothers in our community And connected with the my community just meant so much because They they did deal with so much you know they so my sometimes they don't know whether their son or daughter was gonna walk out the door. It's gonna come back and it's hard because my mom has been there. She knows what his life for me to leave out the door and in going to come back or what happens to me. Or if i'm dead. You know somewhere in the ditch. And i sh- she didn't know so it's constant worry so i wanna be able to really create a safe space for mom to and the fact that this is a family disease and the family can also heal together. Yeah they love them. Yeah that is so beautiful. I think we can kind of kind of thing. Because we're wrapping up today I wrote down something that i picked up from. What you said But i thought. I like to reflect on resistance and i guess as i'm listening to the guests on the podcast speak on little facets and definitions of what resistance could look like and in your conversation. Today i picked up. You said Self-care therapy recovery spot of resistance and advocacy. All of these are different ways. That new are as an individual for your community for yourself or your family Being active and actively resisting color. And i think it's such a gift that you have been able to come on here and share that with us with listeners. Who might be in recovery or thinking about recovery thinking about how we can use their voice to help others Or being part of a community of being part of family To see how different ways that they too can like become resilient and how they can be of assistance in color to thank you for sharing your voice. Thank you so much for your insights And thank you for presenting nia and for and for the birth of nia And so as we look at closing out today We've talked about a lot of things Is there one thing that you would say to somebody you look. I am right now. They're struggling. Is there one thing that you could say To help them on their journey. I see you i really do. I know that you're hurting. You don't have to hurt again. You'll have to hurt by yourself. You don't have to struggle some here. I want to give you a home. Everything will be. Okay yeah.

"And it's something that i often don't really talk about okay and so but i'll just kinda reference it a little bit here. I think it's super important to remember the context of like some of the words. That were using select. Mutual came up all why and this year of like a new one thing or whatever but it was interesting because i mutual aid has been something that a lot of you know. Marginalized groups have used such as disability communities. Yes you know Or like clear communities because organizations they couldn't rely on organizations or like class barriers or whatever to just like provide each other with care so i fled. Mutual aid was a word stella work and i'm trying to like get back to the root of what it means because it became so popular. That kinda got out of its like original context. What another word itself care and like originally self-care came from i believe. Rg lord And but it was. It was a clear black woman and they had breast cancer. So it's interesting that when we talk about self care like we forget that the person who even created that famous quote like self care is not self-indulgence but self-preservation was a breast cancer like survivor and also like was navigating that at the time. Yeah so. I'm saying that because i think like and again i'm trying to get back to like learning more about the the person that made that made term self-care popular. Yes because now south cares related to some of the stuff that you said earlier and And i think because let's coded all of us light then.

"And my face really shaped me. That's that's really how was able to really be this woman that i am today and then i made my repentance to god. I repent it after. I made my repentance. I know. I don't care what anybody else thinks about me. I only care about what god thinks about. Because he's going to be the ultimate judge so that's why. I became the empowerment of sharing. My recovery story came from that source and it was god power. Yeah think you're saying Tell us a little bit about. I think a couple of things in back. Maybe i'll come back to this later. but tell us about the decision and the process of creating the space within of your organization. Well was the the genesis point of this moment. that was a what shape expanses of wanting to create This recovery community organization. And actually tell us about your your platform because no one right neo. Recovery initiative is Is the first recovery organization in the entire nation to help our east african immigrant refugees in the muslim population to stay in their recovery at the community level. As you all know that minnesota is such a treatment state and we don't really invested recovery community organization so people really Initiate recovery treatment center when they can do like twenty days thirty days or at our earth facility or something like that but then when they come out where do they stay recovery in the community so I wanted to create neo which intention so in and chen meaning that you intend with your heart to be well and healthy and therefore you have all these other Sources of you know helping us to succeed for your recovery Leeann was established from a place of good intention and stories of women and men that have lived through experience of recovery And and i have to make really hard decision and say you know our community really needs this. There's not this has not been done so other communities in in the united states can there are serving our population Can really adapt what we're doing so we're just learning and right now so we're just learning and doing the work and nobody else is doing So that's a little bit about nia And we use the model of peer recovery support to help Other community you know someone else lived experienced helping succeed them in their recovery. We're building relationships was To forty five g. or treatment providers. We're getting a lot of positive positive support from the community because this has never been done so cool so thank you and i think even at the level of wanting to. I'm hearing you speak to. And and i think about involving the community in the process of recovery. Because i know a lot of at least of infamy in my in my community takes a village to raise a child and so. This is part of that process to win. It should take village. I guess to make to make to make us feel welcome to make us feel that be allowed to feel vulnerable even in recovery and in the process of treatment. So thank you sharing that. So i have a question. Yeah so we're talking about it. Takes a village and it takes a village for recovery takes. It takes a nia village and intentional village for recovery. So what do you feel needs to happen in this village to start this movement this process. Thank you that's a great question. You're absolutely right like you cannot do recovery work by ourselves like even if you are on the other end community support people need support. I needed support And what it's gonna take as for people my community to really wait up like wake up because This is addiction and mental health. Recovery is not going anywhere You know it's not gonna go anywhere. We need to because right now our community we're burying at least someone Every weekend like because of the opioid epidemic taken over the whole country so Young men and women are dying overdosing and parents and community has to really wake up because it it you know it's our responsibility to do something about it And i really. I would love people to understand What mia is and what it means to the community and that this is a community driven initiative and that. I want them to get on the table. I want them to help me move this. Help us move this initiative forward for future generations so that they don't struggle my i growing up in this country. Yeah yeah tall. And as the speaking about the opioid epidemic. Something that we have also seen at least in the past. Y'all of twenty twenty coming into ten to one is also this increase in a lot of hate just blatant hate for people that look different. Look different from others I think we're coming off of the week of the week In the wake of there was a a murder this past weekend. If any of you saw it. And i think it wasn't kinda doubt where the young man Ran over a muslim family. That was taking a walk and there were like a son. Nine old was the only one who surviving. And he's now in the hospital. And i hope i'm getting the facts straight and killed his whole family just because of i guess prejudice and statements that we have about ideas that we have about who a person in job represents a who passan who is an asian on the street represents and we've seen a lot of hate crimes happening this past year. That also really does make it. Multiplies effect of of of being in a space aware. It feels like fitter score is against you. And i think this could also be something that puts punctures the the process of recovery or even maybe increases what what you're seeing that effect of like substance abuse and dependence. Could you speak a little too even in the wake of what we've seen this. Even the twin cities. Could you speak a little bit to that as well. Yeah i did see that story. It was really sad story on social media and you know stories like that. Just really break my heart. Because it's my words that compassion. Where's the compassionate people I don't know much about that story. See similarly but i do know about the sex of covert nineteen this pandemic and what it has and you know. And how much is really has increased mental health and substance use disorders and the opioid epidemic as well There was a twenty seven percent increase in overdose deaths from the minnesota department of health. Twenty nineteen twenty twenty. That could have been preventable And with the social isolation and.

"Last word here is my last word. That just absolutely drives me to have an extra cup of coffee is word microaggressions by yes. We had this discussion. We have night. I'm going to give you the two minute. Elevator speech aggressions. Are those common everyday things that you know of. Racism perpetrated against black and brown people and the way that it's described is is is that they're minor things where the individual perpetrating the micro aggression didn't intention it. It wasn't intentional. And so this is the biggest scam going seriously. Here's microaggressions are the things that from conception through our entire life result and people having higher levels of hypertension diabetes you know stress related illnesses and that contributes to whole groups of black and brown people dying ten years earlier so black people have tenure shorter lifespan because of the stress related illnesses ten years. That's a lot by the way that's considered a public health crisis in case anybody was wondering it's a public health crisis when a whole group of folks die ten years early. So here's the thing. There was a study that was done here in minnesota by this doctor and they followed the lifespan of black people born and raised here and then they follow the lifespan of african people. Who immigrated here right and as long as they were not born here. The african people had the lifespan of white people. That extra ten years the minute. They had a baby born on this soil their lifespan reduced. And we want to call it a micro aggression so this so mike can kill you ten years earlier. Change the quality of your life. That isn't micro. And my question is why would we. Then focus on the unintentionally of the supposed- unintentionally of the person perpetrating it and not the outcome of the action right great. Yes yes you know. I think common theme and even relates to bad where we're some police and and all this you know and it's like it..

"And i can say a tangible way that it's worked for twenty twenty just as we said that we were talking about george floyd yes. I think you can see in a very tangible manner. Just the worldwide impact that had Wit protests that sparked everywhere. And now we see we see new ideas coming were like joyous boy police in that and things of that nature you see these protests lead into policy changes and one tangible way that you can identify the impact of protest is look at the opposition in the now. Look at what they are doing in response right. Look at all these anti protests in law yes look at all these voter restrictions and these things come about because that's that's the white supremacist system. Fight him back yance. Try not to get taken down. That's shows you that. These protests are having impact. I think if you really really look at it. Opposition look at the way the reactions towards baynes Thorough people in power positions. You see i mean it. They are just having an impact no doubt for sure. So what sorts of things would you say to the young person about taking their voice Against inequity injustice. You know what would you say to them to encourage them as we go through this very very very difficult time because it's been it's been difficult in change. Usually you know the situation usually gets worse before it gets better. And so what can you say that would be encouraging about activism and about What it does for you as well absolutely and and and it kind of piggyback off the last question with this one and just even our encouraged one way. I wear occurrence. People young people to see the importance of their boys. And i will how what it means is by looking at what these protests from a lot of young people. A big one. I'll look at the voting impact that it led to in this last election The voter turnout look at what we did what we accomplished..
