It's been a dark 40 hours. And it will continue to be hard. But we want to remind everyone, including ourselves here at ReVamp Collective, that you are not alone.
At times of such despair, when fear is closing in on so many in our country, we need to lend a hand to our neighbors. Reach out to someone, for their sake and your own. Cherish those you love and you know love you.
There are many ways we can still work to fight for a better world right now. There are many pro-women, pro-immigrant, pro-earth, anti-bigotry organizations that you can support. There are ways you can channel your frustration, anger, sadness and fear into positive action.
This was not an ordinary election. This was not an election that was focused on political issues, this was an election that was focused on the heart. And right now half our American heart is bleeding. We can only hope that the other half, that might have felt ignored or forgotten before, will give us the time and space we need to heal.
We will continue to challenge our audiences and community to fight, to believe, to question, to empathize, to make their voices heard, to persevere, and to know they matter.
At a time of such hardship, darkness and fear we get to choose: flight or fight.
We choose to fight.
