We did this, friends.

Our voices were heard.

The federal government acknowledged that equality is equality, without exception.

That the effort of one human being is, can be, no more nor less valuable than that of another.

That we really do, finally, hold this truth to be self-evident.

There is still much work to be done.

The executive order applies only to federally contracted workers.

The law still allows for widespread discrimination.

The entire system is in desperate need of reform.

So we’ll keep at it.

Because that’s what we do.

But what happened in that room yesterday matters.

Our voices were heard.

And we moved one step closer to the future we know is possible.

With no one left out.

  1. As I said on FB yesterday, “Good job by everyone”.
    An extra good job to Brooke for her “Please” and “Thank You” signs.

    Love you,
    Mom
