The polls were wrong and political reporting misled us. It’s been a sad, frustrating, scary week and there are many more to come. But we have each other, and we have a little bit of time right now to get our plans in order. So gather your strength; we’re going to need it.
I made this for us.
We will stick together.
We will be resilient.
We will repel Republican attacks on women.
And we will maintain control of our bodies.
We will speak truth.
We will bust Trump’s lies.
We will not allow our communities to give in to white fragility.
Because together we will take out white supremacy.
We will contain their hatred and bigotry.
We will surround each other with love and community.
We will protect LGBTQ rights.
And love will win.
Now more than ever, we must band together to apply social and political pressure.
We must agitate.
We must organize.
We must resist.
And never, ever settle.
