Supporting Causes in Response to a Trump Presidency

I've been rather quiet since Donald Trump was elected as the next president of the United States of America. I'm not one to complain about something you can't change, it's usually a waste of energy. For example, how much are people going to talk about Hillary Clinton's national vote lead increasing when that's not how we elect our president?

Instead I prefer to take stock of the situation we are in, and determine what I can do to better it.

A future president Trump has mobilized me to support causes I believe in. Causes that I worry may be undermined by four years of his presidency.

I encourage you to take a look at the causes I've supported recently and think about supporting some yourself.
