Nearly two weeks ago we were all together in DC on the closing day of In Solidarity. We didn’t want another day to go by without thanking you all for coming and for making it a shining example of the best of what the movement for girls must be.

In the days, weeks and months to come we will be challenged and we may face obstacles, but we will also know that we are not alone rather we are In Solidarity with each other – hearts stretched out across the country north and south, east and west. The power you felt in each and every space we occupied from the ballroom ringing with the music of the drum and jingle dress dancers to the joy we see in the photos from the photo booth to the sessions that stretched our minds to the new relationships formed – all of that is ours and no one can take that away from us. WE are the power we felt in those rooms and halls….

 

We look forward to 2019 and know that together with all of you – the 530 people who attended – we can ensure that as In Solidarity grows it will remain the same: a place and time of solidarity, safety, acceptance, laughter, tears and so much more that words cannot adequately convey.

 

 

During the coming weeks we’ll be sending you information about survey questions, t-shirts and more but for now we just wanted to say Thank You!

In Solidarity,
