What Do I Do About Trump?

Less than a month after Election 2016 there are already a number of fantastic resources for collecting one’s thoughts, researching issues, and taking concrete steps to plan a full-court press on the coming Trump Administration.

One site that collects a broad range of resources is What Do I Do About Trump?  The site emphasizes individual and collective action. Individuals looking to commit to a document can create a customized action plan via the “Make A Plan” section. Individuals looking to browse different methods of activism can explore the “Get Involved” section, which links to resources ranging from prescribed daily/weekly action listscalling elected officials, interpersonal connections, and more.

Of note is the “Protect Yourself” section on security. There are separate sections based on types of security—web, sexual/gender identity, personal—all of which are worth investigation, regardless of one’s background.

Also worth highlighting is the site’s resources for fostering new collective/group action. The “Inspire Friends” section provides resources for creating “Action Pods” to structure, support, and direct the energies of an individual and a manageable number of loved ones.

Thanks to Marit for sharing this and several other fantastic resources (which will be shared in the coming days)!

#StandingRockSyllabus

The NYC Stands with Standing Rock Collective’s#StandingRockSyllabus is both a guide to understanding the current resistance against the Dakota Access Pipeline, as well as a comprehensive resource outlining the connections between indigenous peoples’ rights, colonialism, private property, fossil fuel demand, environmental conservation, and many other concepts.

Twitter users can search the hashtag for a growing number of references. However, NYC Stands with Standing Rock Collective’s site is a rich resource on its own. It includes a number of useful charts and visualizations, as well as PDF versions of the syllabus with and without recommended readings.
