We all know fear can be paralyzing. It can be easy to get caught in a quagmire of panic and hopelessness with each new development that threatens people’s lives and promises to roll back progress. But if we lose hope, the opposition wins. Don’t let the corporate-dominated media and culture force us to give up hope for a society that works for all people. A society based on values of justice, love, and dignity, where all people -- of all races, income levels, genders, sexualities, abilities, religions, and countries of origin -- can thrive.
