Moving from "Earliest Access" to "#DefundThePolice"

Previously when you visited logged-out pages on Shmeppy, you’d see this in the top left of your screen:

Clicking the orange text will bring you to Reclaim the Block’s twitter page, though I do wonder if there’s a better place to link to… Somewhere with an explicit call to action, like the various national resources docs. If anyone has suggestions, please share here.

(I’m still matching donations by the way)

Huge thumbs up to that!

Can you change it back? We’re still in earliest access right, and the old sub-label was both helpful and pertinent to the site. This new one is neither.

https://www.8toabolition.com/ would be a good resource to link to. Congrats!

This is a release from quite awhile ago.

I can but I’m not going to right now. Join us on Discord if you’d like to voice more thoughts on this.

I love the folks who made this. I’ve thought of doing this for awhile. Been thinking of having a little rotating set of links (chosen when the page loads).

But we’ll see, I haven’t actually decided whether I want it to be a permanent fixture of the site or not. It currently feels a little grafted on/random if it’s to be permanent and could use some sprucing.
