What a week. We hope you are all taking care of yourselves and each other as best you can. We’ve been listening, hurting, witnessing, regrouping, and working on our Love issue, which launches tomorrow. It features angry, caring, and brilliant feminist essays, art, poetry, and fiction. We cannot wait to share it with you.

Here’s a very short list of links to fuel your rage, motivate action, or soothe your hurt:

âpihtawikosisân locates U.S election results within a larger history of white supremacy and settler colonialism.

Desmond Cole thinks through the U.S election and Canada’s response.  

Zoé Samudzi demonstrates white women’s investments in white supremacy.

Toni Morrison’s No Place for Self-Pity, No Place for Fear, on making art in the face of political malevolence.

Women of colour on healing, and caring for themselves.

Jezebel published a list of pro-women, pro-immigrant, pro-earth, anti-bigotry organizations you should support, if you’re able to, in resistance to the current president-elect.

Adding to the list, since capitalist white supremacist cisheteropatriarchy and settler colonialism are not limited to U.S borders, here are some organizations that you could send your money to:

Native Youth Sexual Health Network

Trans Lifeline

Black Lives Matter Toronto

Onaman Collective

Walking With Our Sisters

Supporting the work of these groups is so important, especially if you’re a cisgender white settler with some extra money! Also, please send us links to any other organizations doing resistance work in Canada and we can continue to update this list.
