There's strength in numbers. Once we show the world that we're together, they can't stop us .

Connections are powerful. Connections are what allows society to function. While the internet has made connecting easier in some ways, it has made it more difficult in others. Internet communication and connection has had many hurdles to overcome. One thing that has been made much easier, in general, is making plans for large in person gatherings.
In the past, elaborate strategies to contact and assemble lots of people to support a cause included telephone trees and distribution of printed information pamphlets or literature. Now there are tons of platforms for people to put their messages on, and lots of search engines to help others find those messages. We have seen historic numbers of people gathering to protest and march around the world in the last 20 years.
