Post Election Options

November 16, 2016 at 9:00 am Leave a comment

Yes I know, we are feeling a bit “Brexited” after the US presidential election results. But for me, action and movement (see previous post) are the best options. Let me share a few I am engaging in and discovering. Please share and add those you have found for local, national or overseas action.

  • Wear a safety pin – Another nod to our UK friends post Brexit
  • If you haven’t already, check out some Facebook groups These are closed groups – ask to join and know they are moderated by private citizens not campaigns:
  • Sign the petition to change 2016 electoral college votes
  • She Should Run – Self nominate yourself or someone else to run for office
  • Support Planned Parenthood and Human Rights Campaign (HRC) wherever you are  – US or overseas
  • Join some great groups mobilizing for change
  • Check out the Hate Crime law so you know what is and isn’t and how to report and demand action. I worked at the Anti-Defamation League when this was made a law. It is currently a federal law enforced by the FBI.

A hate crime is a traditional offense like murder, arson, or vandalism with an added element of bias. The FBI has defined a hate crime as a “criminal offense against a person or property motivated in whole or in part by an offender’s bias against a race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender, or gender identity.” Hate itself is not a crime—and the FBI is mindful of protecting freedom of speech and other civil liberties.
