What happened to this nation last week deserved a moment of silence. We at CHC took the time to talk to each other about what this meant to us as individuals, to our families, to our communities, and to all the hard won victories that impact equity. In many ways, we will continue to move through a process that will take all types of responses and actions to understand what comes next for us as activists. Nearly half of the country decided it was ok to sit this one out and many in our communities voted for this new reality. That is truly difficult to reconcile.
