Let's Not Forget
As much of a high as fans of civil liberties might be on right now, it's essential to remember that, with the negation of the VRA, there is a lot of work to be done. But in spite of the terrible injustices that occur, in fact, because of those injustices, it is important to celebrate the victories we do win. And to go on fighting for the rights of all marginalized and oppressed people. Hearing the voices supporting Wendy Davis last night brought me to tears. Those voices were loud, they were full of hope, they were full of anger, and they were full of power. They could not be silenced. But they will need to stay loud because, as Think Progress reported today, the dismantling of the VRA could mean that Wendy Davis, and countless others like her, are maneuvered out of office by those same men who tried to silence her last night. We can not let that happen. We need to stay loud.
