Thank you so much. Getting ready to assess my bank account to see how much I can spare to donate today.

Hi, everyone. Hope you're hanging in there.

I have found it very helpful over the years to donate to specific projects at DonorsChoose.org that speak to the historical moment. For instance, you'll find a few teachers asking for copies of The Handmaid's Tale at this link: https://www.donorschoose.org/donors/search.html?keywords=handmaid%27s

If you go that route and find other projects we ought to know about that are focused on feminism, trauma recovery, reproductive health/education, etc., feel free to signal-boost them here. - SDB

Thank you for this. On a day like today it sucks to feel so helpless and these links help not feel so devastated.

You’re spot on. We need to feel some sense of recourse to this travesty. Today’s word cannot be final.

Thank you so much for this. I walked into the hair salon shortly after the decision came down and was shocked to see everyone behaving as if nothing had happened. Naturally, I did the same thing, to much inner tumult. Realizing others (besides Dem fundraisers) are feeling the same bereft way helps. I cannot believe I have to protest this fuckery again.

I was in a conference of writers today, holding on to my knot of grief over yet another pummeling our Constitution has taken, and how it feels like those are never going to stop. After listening to and acknowledging our collective despair over this regression into darkness and this abject thievery, it is still difficult to write or say anything that’s reparative. I’ll just say thank you for this post. I was too busy today to read it until now. We need these resources. Because we are not going to settle.

I’ve shared this information with others.
