The new Administration has already filled our broadcasts and newsfeeds with a surreal onslaught of bad news that’s only just begun. We need to defend ourselves against deliberate attempts to shock us into submission. Together, we can fortify ourselves for the work ahead.
Your resilience will be vital. That’s because protecting our rights and communities will require all of us: you, MADRE and committed activists around the world.
That’s why we’ve created our Time Capsule.
We’re giving you a space to capture the beliefs you hold most dear. Because when you do that, you’ll be better able to hold your ground, even when the mainstream lurches further to the right. Your values will keep you on solid footing.
Think about these questions…
- What do I believe in?
- Who am I fighting for?
- What will I refuse to accept?
- What action will I commit to?
- What do I want our future to look like?
When the answers come to you, write them down. Draw a picture. Grab a photo that represents those values.
Even the briefest phrase or the smallest memento can hold meaning far beyond its size. Capturing what we believe in boosts our resilience for the work ahead, combats the normalization of the unacceptable, and holds us firm to our convictions.
