For some, this is a season of celebration, family and feasts, a time of joy, warmth and good deals marked by Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
This is not a reality for everyone, however. All across the country, many people will spend this holiday season under a cloud of confusion, isolation, fear and anxiety. They may be the victims of hate crimes or the targets of xenophobic, racist, sexist, anti-LGBTQ policymakers, especially now as the Trump agenda is set to be introduced in January.
For many people this is also a season of giving. We ask that this year you give the gift of hope and strength to those in your community by supporting our effort to Help Build a Massive Protest at Trump's Inauguration.
On January 20, tens of thousands of people will come to Washington, D.C., to protest at Trump's inauguration to send a message that racism, sexism and xenophobia will NOT "make America great again." Buses cost thousands of dollars, as does the cost of printing flyers, posters and signs.
We have set up the crowd-funded campaign on CrowdRise, which allows each person to not only donate to this historic protest, but also become a fundraiser for it! You just click "Fundraise for this Campaign" — and then can start sharing your personal fundraising page with your friends on social media and over email. (If you want to set a personal goal for yourself, you can do that under "Edit Fundraiser.")
Every donation in any amount makes a difference, so please: give what you can. With this campaign, each individual can become an agent of positive change, please join us in this important effort.
