“The day after the election I was feeling very upset,” Rev. Ashley Horan, a Unitarian Universalist clergywoman, tells the St. Paul Pioneer Press. “I knew how afraid and hurting everybody was in my community, which is full of queer folks and black and brown folks and immigrants. I needed to do something.”
And so she, and some other churches, handed out chalk and sent members out to do good work, which has spread around the country thanks to the #neighborhoodlovenotes hastag on Twitter.
