We will fight on

persevereBy a slim margin, this nation has elected a demagogue who trafficked in bigotry, stoked racist hatred and normalized misogyny. The election of Donald Trump as President threatens basic principles of human dignity and justice.

Many of our most cherished values—inclusion, honoring difference, embracing equality, dismantling oppressive systems—are in jeopardy, but we will not be deterred.

This is the moment we are called to resist. We are about to be tested as never before, and speaking for myself, and NCLR, we will not stand down, sit idle or be silent in the face of oppression, bullying or threat. This election result is devastating for our nation and especially for the most vulnerable. But with you by our side, we will fight on and will never give up. We must be the ones we are waiting for.

Together, we fight on and we fight back. We must harness our grief, fear and outrage and serve justice.

Onward,

Kate Kendell, Esq. NCLR Executive Director
