On Tuesday on the Senate floor, Senator Elizabeth Warren tried to read a letter from Coretta Scott King in which she opposed now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s 1986 federal nomination. The Republican senators voted to formally silence her, saying: “She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.”
It’s been so encouraging and uplifting to see so many people use this as a rallying cry to continue to fight for their rights and the rights of those around them, to lift each other up, and to figure out new ways to work together to build a better future in our communities. Inspired by this, we made a set of #Resistance Facebook covers to help break up our Facebook feeds with some positivity and reminders that our struggles are part of a long history of people who constantly push the boundaries in the present so we can all have a better future.
We’ve made these Facebook covers all available for free to download here (just right-click and select “Save Image”) and on our WISeR Facebook page.
