Fight back against Trump’s hate (sign the pledge)
It’s happened. A candidate who ran on a platform of hatred, racism and misogyny was just elected president of the United States.
While a Trump presidency will attack and assault every progressive value – from defending the environment to reining in corporate greed, from defending civil rights and the social safety net at home to promoting peace and human rights abroad, it’s important never to forget that his agenda and rhetoric put some people more than others at very real and very terrifying risk.
At CREDO, we are horrified by yesterday’s results, and we’re gearing up to stop the fascist who is about to become president and the Republican extremists who enabled and endorsed his racism, xenophobia and hate. But first, and most importantly, we want to make it clear that we stand in solidarity with the people who have the biggest stake in this fight.
No matter what, we will always stand shoulder-to-shoulder with every community Trump has attacked, threatened and marginalized in his campaign of hate. We will not be silent, and we will not back down.
