About Lifting Generations (formerly Women Will), an indivisible group

Lifting Generations (formerly Women Will) pledges to promote and protect the rights of women, immigrants and minority communities through peaceful political action, partnering with like-minded activists, and community engagement to champion these causes and inspire others to do the same.

We have four goals to activate our vision:

1) Be aware, visible, and strategic by making our voices heard by our Members of Congress, and at marches, protests, and rallies through nonviolent means.

2) Form and utilize a quick response team to address issues in a timely, coordinated, and peaceful manner.

3) Support pro-choice candidates in open congressional races.

4) Support schools in guaranteeing the rights of minority and immigrant students and responding seriously to threats to these populations.

 

 

Lifting Generations (formerly Women Will) is an indivisible group.

    (Warning: This post and links contain disturbing stories of violence, misogyny, and racism.)

    I keep deleting the start of this post because I am not sure how to thank Jenn Budd for speaking to us last night.  How do you thank someone who has undergone unfathomable attacks and threats to her life and well-being while training and working for Border Patrol?  How do you thank someone for leaving Border Patrol and unveiling the truth about the violence, lies, crimes, misogyny, and shocking monstrosities that are the fabric of Border Patrol?  How do you thank someone who has dedicated her life to a humane border policy that treats migrants like sisters and brothers?  Dedicated her life to pulling back the curtain on abuse at the border?  It was not easy for any of us to hear the terrifying recounting of events but we are all better for knowing the truth.  We are so horrified that we must continue to take action.  Ways we can do that are to call out Border Patrol for their abuses and lies, write letters, take to the streets and Border Patrol offices and demonstrate, research local, state, and federal candidates to ensure their positions on the border ensure massive reform and respect for all of our sisters and brothers, share what we learned, and motivate like-minded people to register to vote,  vote, and write letters to get likely democrats to vote.  We raised $800 for Alliance San Diego.  Their New Border Vision is what we hope will gain traction so we can begin to live up to the promise of a welcoming and just United States.
