Here’s a post I hoped that I wouldn’t have to write.
Sigh! What happened?
Change your spending habits
Donate to organisations that will be affected by the Trump administration, like The Trevor Project, Planned Parenthood and Earth Justice.
The Trump Administration will not champion women’s rights, LGBT rights, Black Lives Matter, non-Christian religious freedoms. We have to.
Here’s a list of pro-women, pro-immigrant, pro-POC, pro-Earth groups that need your help.
Not sure where you’ll get the money? Boycott Pro-Trump businesses: Here’s a helpful list
Hold Trump to his good promises
-Get rid of the TPP
-Drain the Swamp
-End the Iran Deal
-Save Medicare and Medicaid and Social Security
-Never be in a bicycle race (yeah, no one wants to see you in Lycra!)
Criticise his shitty policies (…most of them)
-Merry Christmas (Fuck you, Trump! I’m gonna wish everyone I know Happy Holidays and Kwanza and Hannakuh, even if I never get another Christmas present ever again
-Defund Planned Parenthood
-Ban on Muslims entering the US
-Kick out refugees
-Jail Hillary; just try Donnie
-Be Unpreditable (do you mean unstable Don?)
Support those close to you
There are women, LGBT people, POC, immigrants, young people who you know, who are scared, terrified, petrified right now.
Scared because their country just told them, that they don’t matter. This election makes any marginalised person feel like nearly half the country said they wanted a bigot in charge.
They need support so check in with them, be strong for them, be there for them.
If you are scared, I’m sorry. I want to help. What help do you need?
Call out hate speech and acts!
The Midterms are in 2018 (that’s next year). If you can fill the Senate with people who support LGBT rights, believe in science and will work to support ALL Americans, you can help America.
