As we prepare for the many frightening ways the Trump/Pence administration may affect the LGBTQ community ― and all minority groups ― it’s important that we begin to consider the best way to allocate funds, time and resources to protect the most vulnerable Americans.
While the list below is by no means exhaustive, the organizations featured on it ― from Planned Parenthood to Lambda Legal ― are crucial in the fight for the rights of those most likely to be under attack when President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence take office in January.
Since many of these organizations are national, it’s also important to research ways you can make a difference in your own, local community. Do a web search for advocacy groups (or reach out to national organizations) and ask if they have ideas or contact info for local chapters or advocates doing similar work. You can also check out a list of grassroots groups doing great work here.
We are in this together.
