This festival spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil, and hope over despair... all which is especially relevant after last nights' midterm elections. Change won’t come simply from the White House, but the stats around voter participation (especially in youth!) have me feeling some type of way; our efforts in civic engagement must always be rooted in caring for one another, building community. Nevertheless, there’s now more in Office that reflect that; here’s to looking at you: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, Sharice Davids, and so many more.
Also: Transgender equality upheld in Massachusetts! Democrats have taken control of the house! More women have been elected to the U.S. House of Representatives than ever before in history! Now let the struggle continue & let’s put in the work 👊🏽
