It was such a privilege to be in D.C. on January 21st with a million of my closest friends for the Women’s March on Washington. I’ll never forget that historic day. The march spearheaded the resistance and made it clear: We’re not gonna let fascism roll over us. We’re never going away. Six months on, I ask: What’s next?

I remember lamenting 10 years ago that I couldn’t afford this brand new iPhone thing (“it’s a phone but also an iPod and camera and it has the internet on it!”). Now, 10 years later, we all have one or something made in its image. But are we better or worse off because of the iPhone?

Election Day is finally, finally upon us. There’s only one candidate who can save this country from an even longer national nightmare, and she isn’t the lesser of two evils.
