Take action. After weeks on the ground in New Hampshire working tirelessly for Hillary and other Democrats, my friend sent a message to her millennial friends (which includes her and my kids). Here’s an excerpt:
. . . ironically, the anger and alarm about a Trump presidency seems to be calling more people than in previous elections to respond actively and constructively to protect the gains that we have made . . . If you are not sure where to start, I’d suggest climate change. For your generations, in particular, this issue is paramount on the broadest level . . . How you work on the problem of climate change will be different for each of us, but if you are looking for ways to learn more on the broader level or become part of a larger movement, find an organization that you are comfortable with along the environmental movement spectrum.
Some organizations to consider:
- Natural Resources Defense Council
- Environmental Defense Fund
- League of Conservation Voters
- Environmental Working Group
