Had a great time celebrating #juneteenth with and hearing from Boston’s Black community.  If we’re going to bring real equity into this city then we have to uplift every voice into the conversation.  Join the #mejiamovement and have your voice heard!

I spent a beautiful Saturday morning in the district starting at the Greater Lowell Area Democrats meeting. I then stopped by the Prostate Cancer Awareness Month event in Lawrence, and beat the heat by grabbing a smoothie at @frobiescafe in Dracut #mapoli #prostatecancerawareness #andover #dracut #lawrence #tewksbury

⚖️The 3rd District Court of Appeal overturned criminal convictions of five Sacramento defendants who had been caught with marijuana in their prison cells. The 20-page ruling says, “Consumption, not possession, is the act voters determined should remain criminalized if the user is in prison.”
•
🍁But the ruling comes with a major caveat: Consumption of marijuana by California prisoners remains a violation of the state penal code, and possession can still be punished as a rule violation by the California Department of Corrections. But if inmates wants to keep a jar of weed next to their bunk, the district attorney can’t file charges, according to the ruling.
•
💨Smuggling marijuana into prisons, and smoking, eating or otherwise consuming it remains a crime. And of course, prisoners could open themselves up to federal prosecution by possessing it.

‪Really enjoyed biking to work today, nice end to the daily commute to Boston for #CarFreeWeek! Takeaways are I need to get in better shape and that @NightShiftBeer @owlsnestboston is a super fun place to live the #BikeLife and break up your ride.‬ ‪Route: Bike the Charles‬ ‪Time: 1hr, 20 min, with a pitstop ‬

Notes: - Stopped for a beer with Nathan Phillips at Night Shift Brewing Owl’s Nest along the Charles River, amazing way to end your Friday night
- Curious to see if I’m sore tomorrow, I feel tired, but good tired, I could definitely get back into the habit of biking to work (I used to living in New Mexico)
- The headwinds were brutal today, Nathan tells me it was a bit worse than usual - Still, all in all biking to work is an awesome option and one I’m hoping to do a lot more of

Always inspirational Franklin County CAC breakfast this morning. Honored to partner with this organization. “Rep. Paul Mark told the crowd that because of Children’s Advocacy Center, there is hope and healing, triumph over some of the worst is society. He said he, Rep. Natalie Blais, D-Sunderland, and Sen. Jo Comerford, D-Northampton, are working tirelessly to make sure the center and other advocates for children receive the funding they need.” https://www.recorder.com/Child-advocacy-26282264.

I am one person, by myself I have been able to accomplish a lot but I have been completely unstoppable because of my team Thank You @thumbprintrealty @thumbprintcares @otbagency #justinSpringer "While working with my mother you get all her attention. She doesn't care for anything else except what you want and what's best for you. Everything that is done by her is done for your benefit. She will sit at the dining room table for hours by herself or on the phone with her client/s until she finds what suits them the best. There are moments when she works hours on end without a break. My favorite part about how she works is that she gets to know all of her clients and her personality makes it hard to not love her." #Asariah

🙀🥳The Nevada bill, AB 132, which goes into effect in January, makes it illegal to “refuse to hire a prospective employee because the prospective employee submitted to a screening test and the results of the screening test indicate the presence of marijuana.” What complicates matters is that many Nevada workers won’t be affected by it thanks to a series of exceptions.
•
🚒🚑Firefighters and EMTs will still be subjected to drug tests, as will anyone with a job that “could adversely affect the safety of others” in the employer’s eyes. Also out of luck are workers for whom federal law dictates a test is required (like truck drivers), as well as those who are mandated to take drug tests because of employment contracts or collective bargaining agreements.
•
👷🏽‍♂️That last category is important—workers under a CBA are union workers, and unions were wary of the measure because a no-drug-testing policy might make it harder for them to be insured and collect workers’ compensation in case of accidents. "They don't want to put their employees at risk," said Madisen Saglibene, executive director of the Nevada and Las Vegas chapters of NORML, which supported the legislation. The next step, she added, was to figure out how to get anti-drug-testing language into CBAs without negative consequences for the workers.
•
🗣"By the time it was having its final public comments, most of the stakeholders who were initially against it testified as neutral,” Saglibene said, “which is saying a lot, actually, considering they were so vehemently opposed."
•
🤷🏽‍♂️It’s unclear how many jobs will actually be open to habitual pot users once the new law comes into effect, but the first-in-the-nation bill is a clear win for activists like Saglibene.
•
👍”We're very pleased,” she said. “This isn't the end-all-be-all but this is absolutely a step in the right direction."

🗣"By the time it was having its final public comments, most of the stakeholders who were initially against it testified as neutral,” Saglibene said, “which is saying a lot, actually, considering they were so vehemently opposed."

🤷🏽‍♂️It’s unclear how many jobs will actually be open to habitual pot users once the new law comes into effect, but the first-in-the-nation bill is a clear win for activists like Saglibene.

👍”We're very pleased,” she said. “This isn't the end-all-be-all but this is absolutely a step in the right direction."

Friday was #BikeDay of #CarFreeWeek! Had a blast riding in, I’ll definitely do this more often. If you are able, this is definitely your best, cheapest option.

Route: #NewtonMA to Storrow, then #bike path 
Time: 1 hr, 12 minutes (And I’m slow)

Notes:
- That was much easier than I thought! The hardest part was probably getting up Beacon Hill after a long ride, but this won’t be my last time
- Ran into Sean Roche who took a pic of me along the path
- Stopped for a nice view at a little more than halfway. I did a modest job of keeping up with bike traffic.
- I thought I would double google’s prediction for ride time, but it was only about 5 minutes off
- #UnexpectedGeeseCrossing was a nice treat

"While working with my mother you get all her attention. She doesn't care for anything else except what you want and what's best for you. Everything that is done by her is done for your benefit. She will sit at the dining room table for hours by herself or on the phone with her client/s until she finds what suits them the best. There are moments when she works hours on end without a break. My favorite part about how she works is that she gets to know all of her clients and her personality makes it hard to not love her." #Asariah

Glad I took the umbrella, this #CarFreeWeek was wet! And the bus was delayed 23 minutes. Don’t worry: the MBTA website and google assured me it was 0 minutes away the entire time. Bonus biking fun to events around Newton!

Route: Walk to 554 Bus (23 min late) from Summer @ Otis

Time: 1 hr, 13 min

Notes:
- Thanks to a kind passenger next to me, I was given a bag to stick my umbrella in so as to not have it dripping all over myself. Thanks for saving my faith in humanity for today, random stranger!
- But wait, there’s more! Today I have some events to go to, so I’ll be riding my bike - rain permitting - or as a last resort taking various buses all around God’s Green Newton
- Bonus transportation: I biked around the city this evening for several events: to support the re-election of my friend Vicki Danberg, we had campaign coffee & discussion in Newtonville, then stopped in to meet @c2cboston at their new headquarters in Newtonville!

What a treat to share my #immigrant journey with the students at Renaissance k-8. I can't believe they asked me for my autograph. Knowing the impact Liz Walker had on my life I value these moments. Led by my dear friend and social justice sister in service Farah Assiraj it was so great to incorporate lived experience with activism. If we want to change the game we have to change how we play it. I have come to learn #ItsTIME to update the job description for city council. These times require bold activist leadership and bringing people into the policymaking mix is the missing link. Join my #MejiaMovement through the link in my bio.

So humbled and honored to have been able to meet @repocasiocortez today. We need more voices and stories like the congresswoman’s in positions of power to change the current conversation. We need to realize that it’s more than about race, but also about the intersection of class and other identities as well. Listening to her speak today reminded me exactly why I am running for Boston City Council At-Large. Her realness has inspired young and old alike to step into their power to lead. I rock my hoops and speak my truth as I strive to assume the seat my sister in service @repayannapressley left behind! ✊🏻✊🏽✊🏿 #JuliaForBoston #MejiaMovement

Thank you @bospressphoto for honoring my coverage of Massachusetts Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley in the #BPPA Pictures of the Year Awards with an honorable mention in the Politics category. My image of Pressley canvassing with Campaign Manager Sarah Groh was taken 8 hours into their 14 hour day, just four days ahead of the primary and under a 92 degree summer sun.  Have a look at some of the honored work of other Boston area photojournalists including all of this years winners over @bospressphoto feed.•
