To my fellow Americans who feel scared & hurt: I love you deeply.

To my fellow Americans who are immigrants, people of color, women, Muslims, LGBTQ, and/or differently-abled — and who feel scared, saddened, angry, and/or attacked by tonight’s voting:

I love you deeply, and we will continue to rise together in the fight for a more whole community. Do not lose hope or step back in fear, even in the face of evil and adversity. We just have to keep persevering for a better future.

And for those of you who voted for Trump because you are worried for your economic future or are frustrated at elite establishments, I understand these reasons and fears, these feelings of disenfranchisement (even if I do not agree with your choice). I invite you to join the voices of those of us who fight against the systems of oppression, so that we can have a fuller and more holistic dialogue about the issues that affect our everyday lives.
