Resist’s Donor Quarterly #1
The world is in deep turmoil, shifting and changing almost daily. We are amid a global pandemic, the fight for Black lives continues, and we’ve survived domestic terrorist attacks in Nashville and even in our nation’s Capitol. We’ve experienced two mass shootings in the last two weeks and stood in solidarity with the AAPI community against racist attacks. It’s hard to see a clear path forward at this moment. But the “great unveiling” of these last four years has also shined a light toward endless possibilities to create the world we want. The question remains, how do we get there?
We’re all at different stages of our understanding. Some of us are just beginning to understand the impact of the systems around us; some have been organizing for years or even decades. Regardless of where you find yourself, we want you to think of Resist as a political home. The movement doesn’t just need resources; it needs you. It needs your presence, compassion, and time but most of all, it requires all of us to commit to ongoing learning and transformation. As a Resist donor, we want to support you on this journey.
This is why I am excited to introduce to you Resist’s Donor Quarterly. In this newsletter, we will share resources that include articles, videos, and podcasts that will help you develop a deeper understanding of how the communities on the frontlines of justice and liberation movements contextualize and respond to this moment.
