Donald Trump has been long known as a perpetrator of bigotry, xenophobia, Islamophobia, misogyny, sexism, racism, and fascism. Despite all this, his supporters told us to give him a chance.
He hasn’t been in office for even a full week, but he’s already moving to block women’s healthcare services around the world, deport immigrants, ban refugees from Syria and immigrants from other Muslim countries from coming to the U.S., and reinstate the Dakota Access Pipeline.
Now is the time to take a stand and fight back. Trump and his cronies may be drunk on power, but together we can show him what true power looks like. Join the fight by volunteering with and donating to these organizations standing against Trump and his policies.
1. Sexual and Reproductive Health
It is estimated that 1 out of 5 women in America has visited Planned Parenthood center at least once in their life. Planned Parenthood isn’t going anywhere even if Trump stated that he would block the access to this sexual and reproductive health care – but yes, Obama has said otherwise. The donations go here; volunteer info goes here.
