I'd been working on these posters for a little bit when the Muslim Ban was announced. I went from feeling helpless and miserable — I'd gotten very distressing news from Ali's family — to feeling motivated and angry and determined in a way I'd never felt before.
So today I printed out the pieces pf the posters I'd completed (more or less) and joined the protest at SFO. It was a humbling experience to say the absolute least. Bless the wise women of color who led us today. Bless the refugees and detainees who seek our shores. Bless every single body that showed up and shut that shit down today. It was a very small success but hopefully one of many to come.
