We resolve to resist in 2017
As 2016 comes to a close, we are reflecting on our accomplishments this year and our work funding abortion for the last fifteen years in Texas. Thanks to your generosity, we look forward to building an even stronger network of support for our clients and our community in 2017.
Lilith Fund is participating in SisterSong’s #RJResolutions campaign to choose resolutions that reaffirm our fierce commitment to creating a Texas where all people have the resources and support needed to make their reproductive decisions a reality, and challenge us to be courageous partners in this work with our community.
- We resolve to resist hateful rhetoric and anti-choice attacks in our communities.
In just a few weeks, Donald Trump will be sworn in as president and the 85th Texas Legislative Session will begin. We face many challenges—including dangerous policies and laws—targeting abortion rights, people of color, immigrants, refugees, the LGBTQ community, and many more. We will not tolerate any attacks on marginalized or vulnerable communities. We will speak up and we will resist—together.
- We resolve to be in radical collaboration with our communities and draw strength from one another.
Our movements for reproductive health, rights and justice do not exist on their own. Our work intersects with that of other movements, and we will listen to those movements, to leaders fighting for justice in our neighborhoods and our cities. Now more than ever, we need to unite in solidarity and take action together. There is strength in our numbers. We will show up and be present.
- We resolve to build greater compassion for our callers, our abortion providers, and our supporters who partner with us to make abortion access a reality.
We will be courageous, kind, and compassionate. We will direct our energy into cultivating an inclusive and empathetic community. No matter what the future holds, we resolve to do this work with love.
Will you join us in working towards our vision for a more just Texas? Use the hashtag #RJResolutions to share your own resolutions for reproductive justice on social media, and make your end-of-year gift to Lilith Fund today. Your support makes our work possible.
Thank you for sticking with us through 2016. We look forward to partnering with you in the New Year!
