In the weeks since the United States presidential election there has been an outpouring of monetary support for organizations supporting efforts that are threatened by Donald Trump's impending presidency.
Organizations that work to protect the environment, groups that fight for civil rights, women's reproductive rights, and the rights of racial and religious minorities have all been flooded with millions of dollars of donations as well as large numbers of volunteers offering support.
This is what we need right now, and what we need going forward into the future. A survey of Donald Trump's cabinet picks so far shows a group of people who represent an extremely regressive, conservative, and religious-minded group that has the makings to undo decades of progress on equal rights, scientific understanding of our impact on the environment, access to safe birth control, and the continued separation of church and state.
Please consider joining the fight if you haven't already. No amount of help is too small. If you can, donate to the organizations that support threatened causes. If you are unable to donate, consider volunteering. If you cannot volunteer, be a voice for these organizations on social media so you can help spread the word to others who may be able to help in other ways.
You can do something to protect our future from the close-minded, theocratic, anti-science, money-driven agenda that these people are going to be pushing on the American people beginning in 2017.
Here is a list of just some of the organizations that could use your help (there are plenty more!):
