Listen, folks.

We are not fighting for our generation.

We were never fighting for our generation.

We are compelled to fight for the generations who will remember us.
This is gonna leave a mark. I know it's gonna leave a mark. People are gonna die.

I've already watched people die.

We're still gonna have to fight.
We're gonna have to build tools and networks and communities. We have to cast off the methods we've grown used to and we're gonna have to do more.
Are you in tech?

Good. Build an anonymous, secure Airbnb for women traveling to places where they can get an abortion.

In fact why doesn't this already exist?
Get used to cooking for guests and opening your homes to strangers and for fucks sake learn how to navigate without electronics.
Community means we support those who need it most and help create the structures everyone needs.

We needn't rely on institutions to provide what we can provide ourselves.

Let's create that world.
We have to stop hoping that a corrupted system will uncorrupt itself willingly.
The Constitution has been deeply corrupted and its framework won't bail us out now.
I learned some things from hanging out with drifters and queers in Appalachia and that is what solidarity means. Solidarity means that if you've got floor space, you've got room for a guest. It means you do the work for those who need it.
We have had the privilege of living soft.

We will now learn how to be hard.
There have been many underground railroads throughout history and we have the FUCKING INTERNET we can actually do this shit, people.
Oh and if you do this don't write line one of code until you've talked to three dozen midwives and PP nurses and sex educators

Remember: all the revolutions you read about were years or decades in the making.

Remember that we are suffering the effects of a multi-generational struggle on the side of the Christian right.
