I'm not pleased with how the election turned out. I also feel sad, really getting, that living in California (gratefully), surrounded by progressive, tolerant and hard-working people, I truly was in denial about the result we're now looking at. That said, I know taking action, educating oneself further, and helping others where/when we can, is always possible. Yesterday, my money went to a Planned Parenthood donation & a copy of Bruce Sringsteen's new book "Born in the USA." Today I got Rebecca Solnit's "Hope In The Dark " FREE via Hay Market Books.
I was also heartened by a statement made of California Legislative leaders:
"California is – and must always be – a refuge of justice and opportunity for people of all walks, talks, ages and aspirations – regardless of how you look, where you live, what language you speak, or who you love.
California has long set an example for other states to follow. And California will defend its people and our progress. We are not going to allow one election to reverse generations of progress at the height of our historic diversity, scientific advancement, economic output, and sense of global responsibility." Read the full statement HERE.
I also found a handy-dandy post "What Can I Do" that's chalk full of useful actions. Check it out here: http://www.whatcanido.io/
