If you tuned into the Academy Awards tonight, you saw celebrities like Sting, Jaden Piner and Colleen Atwood wearing an important symbol -- the ampersand.
Why the &?
It stands for unity. Because, together, we must resist the powers that seek to divide us. All of us must stand in solidarity. None of us are just one identity, and many of us are under attack. All marginalized communities are under attack, and we will not be pit against each other. The ampersand is the symbol that unites us.
Together, we resist.
