Honestly, there are so many things to remind myself of, to be inspired by, to be motivated to never give up. Yeah, the Electoral College just put into the presidency the most uninformed, racist, misogynist, serial lying, narcissist we have ever seen. But then I remember the power of us working together, me and you and so many others who share our passions and priorities. And the resolve rises up within me.
And I know you are afraid because to do this work means there will be a loss. You might lose friends, family connections, jobs or status with some people. But my people are losing their whole lives due to systematic racism and bias. If you believe in the movement, you must act. You need to enact your power as a bystander.
