Stories of Girls’ Resistance
Kelly, New Mexico


“It’s so interesting that you use the word resistance because I feel like I’ve been really focused on challenging… I’ve been focused on the concept that what you resist persists and so for me, I’m really trying to shift that and so I’m really trying to feel like what do I want to bring as opposed to what do I want to push against? For example, in New Mexico yesterday, we had 45 come through and so there was so much, so many feelings about that. And so I’m trying to figure out instead of resisting all of this, how do I really challenge and create a place for inclusivity and health and instead of against something trying to be for something.”
