In the wake of the terrible shooting in Orlando early Sunday morning, we will forgo our usual feminist rhetoric. Not because it doesn’t matter, but because we need time to grieve. To grieve for our sisters and brothers who were killed and wounded. To grieve for a community already vulnerable and constantly attacked. To grieve for a culture that aids and abets violence.
Take care of yourselves while you grieve and process. (Here are some tips.) And know that you are not alone. Because here at the empower couple we believe that all humanity is connected, that we are one human family. And we deeply know that no one is free until we are all equal.
We will not stop being Proud. We will not stop celebrating Love. We will not stop advocating for Non-Violence.
