Our Thoughts on the 2016 Presidential Election

Our heads are spinning and our hearts are heavy. Rather than celebrating a shattered glass ceiling, we feel the weight of a lower one bearing down on us. This election is a reminder that real change is almost never linear and steady. It happens in fits and spurts—in maddening steps backward for every relentless push forward.

This week, we have found deep comfort in knowing we’re not alone in such an uncertain and troubling time. Our greatest strength comes from our ability to listen to and share with one another. In that spirit, we’d like to share some of the compassionate, wise, encouraging and even inspiring words from our leaders, nonprofit partners and friends, with the hope that they bring comfort and strength to you, too.
