This t-shirt started as a joke I made the day before attending the Boston Women's March on 21 January 2017.
"I'm not a yeller," I said to a friend, "so I feel like I should be wearing a t-shirt that says 'I may be quiet, but that doesn't mean I'm not angry.'"
It's a feeling I'm sure a lot of introverts will recognize. (It's why we all loved the wonderful "So bad, even introverts are here" signs we saw at marches and on social media.) We are farther outside our comfort zone that we ever thought we'd have to be--but the current US administration is making that necessary.
In subsequent days, sadly, there have been unbelievably reprehensible measures to protest, with the threat of much more to come. And the heroes of the ACLU--always at the fore of the battle for civil rights--have their work cut out for it in them days-weeks-months-years ahead.
So I invite you to join me in supporting the work of the ACLU, introvert-style. We're here, we're thinking, we're acting--and we're not going away.
