The Sound Mind Streamer

For those of you who have been following the journey of the Sound Mind Streamer, I'm so moved right now. I'm so grateful to give the following status report.

Our donors have come from all walks of life: national and international participation from amazing people that have used all manner of social media to contribute to this program.

A few notable donors are Tio McDonnald from The East Oakland Time who donated discs loaded with Type Beats. Sister Kathy in Fremont, California who donated discs with over 900+ songs of spiritual inspirational music. DJ Jules created a playlist of LGBTQI+ urban persepective content all the way from the Netherlands. Yes, over 50 playlist hours of videos.

Acting with compassion and truth group, wow. Thanks for believing in us.

Our donors communicate with each other by way of phone calls, emails, and one even created a YouTube channel to use as a workstation for expanding ideas.

The donated contributions from the public are now being screened by SQSP Media Center Administrators, and inner campus programming just may begin before a kind soul transcribes this work.

Our major contributor is Between the Bars.org, who allowed us the opportunity to blog this amazing story, as incarcerated people and people all over the world handwrite life and share this post with the world. And then magic happens, and that magic is better known as humanity. Thank you, Michigan, and San Rafel, California family for keeping the lines of communications of our donors connected.

Humanity hasn't always been translated in urban culture for those of us who identiful as LGBTQI+. And when we find cracks to the doors of crowded closets, we can go inside and share care, love, and gifts like the Sound Mind Streamer.

Okay, so yes. For me, this was impossible, physically dangerous, emotionally draining, and at the same time, extremely amazing. I'm so honored to have experienced love, care, and help to deliver morale building, spirit lifting, educational, venting, ideas to the most under served population here on campus, where now over 4,373 people have access to content that challenges the spirit of fear with the power of power, love, and a sound mind.
