”¢ Stand with those who are at risk. Support immigrants, people of color, the LGBTA community, women, people with disabilities (visible or not), anyone who is “other” and is going to be a target.
”¢ Donate, if you can. Time, energy, and money. Some organizations you might want to consider donating to:
â—¦ Planned Parenthood
â—¦ The ACLU
â—¦ The Southern Poverty Law Center
â—¦ The Trevor Project
â—¦ Immigration Equality
â—¦ The Wildlife Society
â—¦ The American Library Association
â—¦ Americans United for Separation of Church and State
â—¦ The Center for Reproductive Rights
â—¦ The Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN)
â—¦ Local food banks
â—¦ Local shelters for at-risk people
Stay safe, help where you can, and take care of each other.
