1. I Am Back - A Message from lauren Ornelas
And I have yours.
For me, November 9th, the day after the election, was surreal; I felt detached from my body and tremendous grief and confusion.
But as my grief fades, my determination grows.
As many of you know, I have been arrested more than a dozen times for non-human animals, and I am writing to let you know I have your back; if you are LGBTQ or have loved ones who are, if you are undocumented, if you are a POC or a woman – I have your back.
I will put my freedom on the line to defend you and all who are vulnerable as I am not sure what recourse we have when all branches of government are held by someone so hateful.
I am scared for so many I love, but I will not let fear stop me.
And I am so sorry for what has happened, but I am coming out of my fog – fighting.
In strong solidarity,
