Reaction to Election Day/News Story
November 10, 2020
What we knew before the election still holds true: as people of color, as queer and trans- people, as immigrants, as students, teachers, and workers, as poor and working-class people, our power comes not from the State or the government but from working together, from being in community, from building strong alliances across difference to reduce harm and amplify good. No matter what happens in the coming days, right now we just need to be there for each other, to hold our fears and our fury, secure in the knowledge that we have a long history of fighting the injustice and inhumanity that has defined this nation from the start. We know that no matter the outcome of this election, our work is not done. As communities dedicated to a world where all of us can thrive, we know we must continue to provide care and support for the most vulnerable among us, work on every front to address the swelling tide of hate, corruption, and totalitarianism that we see all around us, and hold each other close in these trying times so that we can dream another future into being.
