As we reflect on 2020, we saw people around the world come together to help others facing unnerving odds, as allies and advocates for not only their friends and neighbors, but for people they may never meet — providing financial support amid an economic crisis, donating protective gear to the people who need it most, and taking to the streets to demand justice for all.
Although the path forward into 2021 may feel uncertain, one thing has never been more clear: To change the trajectory for the better, we have to come together, work together, and support each other in building a brighter, safer, more just future we can all share. We need to believe in our power, as humans and humanitarians, to reshape the world into one where healthy love is possible for everyone. We have to stay focused on our potential, as individuals and as community, to achieve this fundamental goal.
What we do now, together, will shape what happens next.
