JASS Movements Newsletter

July 2015

Just like the moons and like suns, With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high, Still I’ll rise. ~ Maya Angelou

We open this newsletter with an excerpt from renowned poem, Still I Rise, which is filled with words that uplift our spirits and remind us to keep working to create a better world for all, even as the tides get steeper. It reminds us to pause, re-evaluate, and start again. An important message given the changing political landscape, where it’s becoming increasingly dangerous for activists who are on the frontlines of crises to speak out.
