I could never imagine saying that Donald Trump’s election had any sort of silver lining. I just can’t bring myself to say those words.
I will say that a lot of people seem energized and politicized – some who may never have considered taking to the streets or writing a cheque.
This weekend alone, the [American Civil Liberties Union] …received more than $24 million in online donations from 356,306 people, a spokesman told The Washington Post early Monday morning, a total that supersedes its annual online donations by six times.
That’s big money and money helps a lot in social movements, and politics, and advocating for justice.
Keep it up, people. It’s only the beginning.
