While an in-person Windycon cannot happen this year, please come on over to our lighter virtual offering – Breezycon! The COVID-19 pandemic and the economic upheaval in its wake have highlighted the frailties and inequalities in our social systems. What were once the mundane routines of our lives have become acts of courage and love for our families and communities against an invisible killer. Furthermore, in the United States, we have been struggling increasingly divisive partisan politics .. continue reading that threaten the basic civil rights of the most vulnerable groups of our citizenry. At no point in the last four years had this threat been made more apparent than during the presidential debate on September 29th, when the sitting President of the United States, on broadcast television, gave tacit approval to a known hate group by telling them to "stand back and stand by". In these unprecedented times where trolls and bad-faith actors half-attempt to pass of their vile words as "sarcasm" and accuse those who call them out as "not being able to take a joke", I find it is necessary to be unflinchingly explicit in rebuking such insidious ideas before they take hold. As the current chair of Windycon, let me be very clear: we completely reject white nationalism and ANY movement which discriminates against people based on their race, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, or religious affiliation.
