The shocking election of Donald J. Trump rocked an already divided America and left scores of citizens, including the nearly 63 million voters who supported Hillary Clinton, feeling bereft and powerless. Now, Gene Stone offers invaluable guidance and concrete solutions they can use to make their voices heard and to make a difference-showing them how to move from despair to the activism necessary to take their country back.
Before we can successfully engage, we need to be clear about the battles ahead. Stone outlines fourteen political and social concepts-including Civil Rights, Environmental concerns, Education, Social Security and Medicare, Women’s issues, Immigration, Voting freedom, Energy policy, Politics and future elections, International affairs, Labor, and Gay rights-providing a brief history of each, Obama’s policies and actions to promote them (good), and what Trump can do to effect them (bad). Stone then provides a substantial guide of organizations, people, sites, and other resources which support positive, progressive goals.
While protests and social media give voice to frustration, it takes action to achieve real change. Positive and reinforcing, The Trump Survival Guide presents the essential information we need to make a difference-and successfully limit the damage of an unprecedented Trump administration.
