Even though this is a hiking site, this post is going to take a different tone today because it is necessary to focus on what is important: equality for all. Sage and I are Sisters Hiking for Equality for a reason; we believe in the equality and unity of people from all backgrounds. People from all ethnicities, genders, and sexual orientations should be treated the same and should be judged only by their personalities. This election has been hard on all of us, and it still is considering who won the presidency. We need to come together and stand up for what is right. Everyone has to be a shining bulb of justice in the midst of the cruelty and discrimination which has skyrocketed ever since Donald won the electoral vote. Just remember that Hillary won the popular vote, and she will remain in our hearts and our spirits as we fight the force of hate.
I want to thank all of the people who donated to Global Fund for Women (GFW). It is a fantastic organization and it promotes equality for women around the world. That being said, we feel we have to take care of our own country now, because progress has been pushed backward. Our future and the future of our country is at stake, and therefore we will be focusing our contributions on American organizations that support equal rights for everyone. We will have more detailed information about our plans next month.
In the meantime, here is a video we put together to express our thoughts and ideas for moving forward.
