Hey, fam. How y’all holding up? We know, we know. What a fucking week. What a fucking year. What a fucking past few years.
Roe v. Wade was overturned yesterday. So many of us were shocked but not surprised that SCOTUS rolled back reproductive rights. They been on bullshit for a minute. We share your rage, numbness, terror, and fear. We will mourn and will continue to fight. We have nothing to lose but our chains.
Check out Brittney’s piece on navigating life as a pro-choice Christian in a post-Roe world and friend of the newsletter Rebecca Traister’s piece on why we can’t give up though we despair.
So, what can we do? The Right is in it for the long haul. They are eyeing contraception and gearing up for a federal abortion ban. Same-sex marriage too. We have to be in it for the long haul too. One thing we can do today, besides take it to the streets, is donate to our local abortion funds.
This shit is lowkey breaking our souls but dancing never hurt nobody. Shout out to Beyonce and Drake and so many other artists for helping to make house music the soundtrack of the summer. Cultivating joy is more important than ever. It is our birthright and part of our liberation. Take it to the dance floor. Take care of yourself, loves.
We love you.
