I just want us to remember these things as our wins, not just as random capitulations. These battles are so hard and dehumanizing. We only get the energy to keep fighting them by recognizing when we cross each finish line. Take the W today. Keep fighting and pushing tomorrow.
For Black history month 2019, Twitch raised up @Code2040 as a place folks were fundraising for. We were inundated with hate tweets, phishing attacks, folks trying to break into our bank account. We gave very direct feedback and we were questioned how we knew the two were related.
We got $2900 if I remember correctly and spent $10k+ on network security. We have been fighting these fights.
