A struggle against xenophobia

Yesterday, Thursday, January 26, 2017, I once again held space.  The space in question appeared to be a park, adorned most prominently with some engraved slabs of granite, memorials to fallen Veterans.  But in this moment it was the center of a new struggle.  A struggle against the xenophobic and anti-islamic immigration laws being proposed by the new administration in Washington D.C.

Without much warning, we were able to rally a few dozen peaceful protestors to hold signs and listen to some speeches about building this movement for what is to come.  It wasn’t huge, but it was something.  We held that space.  And now, we must make it bigger.

Here is some coverage of the event:
