Last night, we told more than half of the country that their lives are insignificant. Today, we need to start taking action to remind everyone that their lives are significant. You are all just as important as anyone.
At LFC, our belief is that there should be no limit to what women want to be when they grow up. Not just white, American women. All women. While we may not have a President under our belt, we became one step closer with this election.
To everyone who is heartbroken, saddened, scared, lost, or any other emotion today, we’re here for you. We created this community with the goal of being a safe space for women to talk, and even in moments of fear, that is still what we are – a space for all women-identifying humans to come together. Because at the end of the day, we are all human beings. In the face of hatred, racism, sexism, and bigotry, let us show love. Let’s spread as much love and kindness as we can; because love always wins.
If you need to talk, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tweet to us at @lafemmecoll. Do whatever you need to do to reach us. We are here.
We would also like to mention some other great communities to look towards moving forward: She Did What She Wanted, The Wing, The WW Club, Black Girl Magik, New Women Space (and many more). Please take the time to check these out and get involved. Use your voice to talk about and fight for what you believe in and what is right as now is not the time to stay silent, but to raise our voices and come together. As we know, we're stronger together.
With all the love in our hearts,
Your team at LFC.
“This loss hurts. But please, never stop believing that fighting for what’s right is worth it.”
