8 organizations that prove that #HopeTrumpsHate
Since the election in November, a lot of people are worried about the future and how they’ll fit into Trump’s America. Inflammatory rhetoric trying to further marginalize women, people of color, the LGBTQ community, immigrants and people with disabilities has left people feeling alone.
The thing is, you’re not alone. In fact, a lot of us (some may even say a popular majority of the electorate) are concerned our interests won’t be represented starting on Jan. 20, 2017. Here are eight organizations who will continue to fight for you, ensuring that #HopeTrumpsHate, regardless of who lives (part-time) in the White House.
