To the next generation of activists,
(You may not think of yourself as an activist yet, but a lot’s going to happen in the next four years, so please hear me out.)
The election of Donald Trump as president of the United States was devastating for so many of us. He’d spent months threatening immigrants, women, people of color, Muslims, and the differently abled, among others. This goes against everything I stand for. But within a few days, my initial feelings of despair began to change into something more powerful and productive: the resolve to resist.
