A Brief Pause, and Helpful Links

(Regular posting will resume here at Gothic Charm School some point in August. Things in the world have been very chaotic and stressful lately, which has led to a lack of writing.)

The Lady of the Manners gets political: The world has become a much scarier place for a lot of us, and we need to pull together.

• 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:

Black Lives Matter

◦The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People 

Planned Parenthood
The Southern Poverty Law Center
The Trevor Project
Immigration Equality
The Wildlife Society
The American Library Association
Americans United for Separation of Church and State
The Center for Reproductive Rights
The Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN)
◦ Local food banks
◦ Local shelters for at-risk people

Stay safe, help where you can, and take care of each other.
