One of the problems we see in digital activism today is in how we react to the messaging of our opposition. It's a catch-22: on the one hand, we must address the egregious nature of the points being shared, but by doing so we inevitably do the work of spreading their talking points. Is it better to ignore them, or to address the damage they are causing?: https://bit.ly/3E5OVpm

'This Is Our Lane': Why the Women’s March Took Up Police Violence - Rewire News Group

"If we meant what we said about allyship and anti-racism last summer, we have to do more than talk. Because posting a black square on Instagram or writing 'BLM' in your Twitter bio isn’t enough." - Rachel O’Leary Carmona / Rewirenewsgroup

For too many Black and brown women, police are a source of fear, not a source of safety.

How Growing Up in New York After 9/11 Shaped These Muslim Leaders

“I was 9 years old when I watched my congresswoman wear a burqa in Congress to justify the invasion of Afghanistan. For the rest of my life, I knew that as a Muslim woman my identity would be weaponized to justify American wars. 20 years of war later, what did we accomplish?” - Rana Abdelhamid / The New York Times

Linda Sarsour, Shahana Hanif for City Council, and Rana Abdelhamid For Congress are just three of the powerful activists & leaders that have risen up from the #Xenophobic #Fearmongering that defined a generation plagued by the consequences of 9/11. #NeverForget: https://nyti.ms/3A3DwEb

“I watched the generation that was silenced and then I watch a new generation coming up now that is fearless,” one activist said.

2020 has been a non-stop kick to the gut and so we felt a desperate need to do something to uplift our collective spirits and feel hope again. We are Kana Mota and this is our song "Mr President” we created this music and made this video to re-energize the progressive community. Mr. President Video Link: https://youtu.be/Cn8oTg6eru4 The response we have received since we released it last week has been overwhelmingly positive! We hope you will take a moment to listen, watch, and be inspired to SHARE this with others so we can get this important message of light out to as many as possible. Let’s keep the positivity going all the way to ‪November 3rd‬! "When they go low, we go high"! Peace, Chris and Kana Mota
