350 Action Responds to Election of Donald Trump
BROOKLYN, NY - Following the election of Donald Trump as President-elect of the United States of America, 350 Action Executive Director May Boeve issued the following statement:
“Trump’s election is a disaster, but we must channel our anger and fear into hope and resolve. Our work becomes much harder now, but it’s not impossible, and we refuse to give up. The hateful rhetoric promoted by Trump’s party will only strengthen the ties between progressive groups and make our movement stronger. Together, we will put everything on the line to protect the progress we’ve made and continue to push for bold action. We refuse to leave the future of our climate in Trump’s hands. Now is the time to take a deep breath and fight like never before.”
350 Action will continue to fight for the bold climate action that science and justice demands.
FRIENDS: Help Us Fight
Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
