All The Bay Area Election Events and Protests

Well it’s here. The day we’ve all been waiting 4 years for.

Take a deep breath and then let it out. I’m sure you’re as anxious and stressed about the upcoming election as I am. Hopefully Trump will be overwhelming defeated and will not contest the election. If that’s the case we should celebrate, and then get back to work fighting for a better world for everyone. If Trump does win or tries to contest the election, there are some very dark days ahead of us and there’s even more work to do. Here’s a guide on what to do if Trump reuses to concede.

Regardless I’m honored to be by your side struggling for equality, equity, and justice. Sending you lots of love and solidarity in these fucked up times.

BE AN ACTIVIST FROM HOME:

If you need to stay home, you can still help by making phone call, sending emails, using social media to inspire others, and supporting protestors. Hopefully, you already learned how to do some of this during the BLM protests and in the run-up to the election. Here are some links to help coordinate from home action:

Protect our Democracy County Election Officials contact template

Ways to Support Street Protestors From Home (this is from the BLM protests but the same advice applies)

No matter what, get ready to take some form of action. If we don’t have to, we can all breath a sigh of relief and take a a little time to rest. If we do have to take action, preparing means you will be less anxious and ready to move that much faster.

    And what do we do if Trump wins by a large margin?
