"I am not free while any woman is unfree, even if her shackles are very different from my own."
—Audre Lorde

We aim to bring together individuals, communities and organisations that represent diverse populations into a global movement that not only refuses to go back to the normal that yesterday brought us, but that also strives for an affirmative tomorrow.

The status quo has long been an emergency for many, and we seek not to react, but to build on what has been germinating. We must make our own demands, of ourselves, instead of looking to imaginary powerless institutions to solve these issues.

We cannot be bystanders, passively consenting to what has been an emergency for so many, for so long. The volunteer coordination that rose up to support the British NHS, the global mutual aid networks that are coordinating help to where it needs to go, reminds us of our collective power.
