"Women, LGBTQIA folk, and people of color are leading the resistance. Anyone who has been systematically marginalized by these policies and our society is leading the resistance. We will not sit down and stay silent as our rights are stripped from us on the daily. We will not be content with our second class citizenship any longer. This is our country too." - Becki Fernandez
