This year, and especially the last few months/weeks/days… have been especially tiring. I know it’s been hard for everyone, but it has been especially hard for our BIPOC communities, women, LGBTQ+, disabled, and those experiencing mental and/or economic hardships.

I am beyond happy that we got to celebrate this weekend. Our celebration was not an indication that the fight is over, but that the fight is possible. But please be sure not to burn yourself out. The happiness takes just as much energy as the sadness. So take care of yourselves, rest, and come back ready to work. Because the work is going to continue. We just have a path forward now.
