Who we are as a people.
We are teaching our children that bullies win and that women and minorities and Muslims and countless others have no value. And we’ve elected a POTUS who has no idea what he’s doing, and he has no desire to learn. We’ve never had a President like this and I am both scared and disgusted.
So where do we go from here? What do we do now?
I’m not sure that we’ll ever totally get rid of that feeling of being gutted over Trump’s win, but I do know that it is more important now than ever that we organize and do all that we can to fight against Trump’s bigoted alt-right agenda.
One thing we can do now is support progressive organizations that are pro-women, pro-immigrant, pro-environment, and anti-bigotry. They are our front line right now, and we need to do all we can to strengthen them.
Here are several organizations that you can feel good about supporting. And I’ve included links to donate, join, volunteer, and find your local branch beneath each.
