Scapegoating immigrants and refugees – some of the most marginalized and powerless members of our society – for the problems we face as a nation is deeply racist, I rose to disrupt Trump’s ‘victory speech’ tonight to make sure that no one, whether in the arena or watching in their living room, could overlook the horrifying racism, xenophobia, Islamophobia and misogyny that is at the root of Donald Trump’s ideology. We want to build bridges not walls, and we want peace and love, not hate and war.” — Medea Benjamin
Daily Practice: Medea disrupted the RNC last night, her message is to build bridges not walls. It is the message of growing your local peace economy. To tear down the walls that separate us and build bridges of connection, respect and love. What can you do this weekend to continue building a relationship with your community? What is stopping you? Let Medea’s courage inspire you to have the courage to reach further, invest more and build your bridges.
