We are entering a very difficult phase in our movement. People are worried and saddened about the uncertain future. This is a time to create space to share, listen and commit to love and protect each other and to realize the power that we have in the face of looming threats. This is also a time to resist racism, sexism and xenophobia. ICIRR members made it immediately known that the resolve and resiliency of our communities will not waver.
