We are all (together and individually) in an extraordinary situation, and our perspectives and opinions are not ones that are normally heard. We are uniquely in a position to be incredibly informed and aware of a situation that not many people really know very well.
We are young and as such are the political voices of the future.
We are women, we are American, and yet we are all personally connected to this place and these questions of identity, democracy, humanity, globalization, justice, what-have-you.
We know there are voices of reason and that they should be heard, wherever they are coming from.
We have different backgrounds but came together in this little patch of land. Here we are developing our thoughts on this situation, or solidifying thoughts we already have.
We are individuals who believe that together we can share something important with the world and with the people at home. They say all politics are local, but today everything local is global.
