Mourning and Organizing Locally

I just got done processing the election results, meaning I drank, cried, and was glued to facebook  for most of the day. I felt significantly better when I went for a bike ride and talked to one of my friends face to face for a bit. One thing someone posted was “Tonight we mourn, tomorrow we organize:”

So I’m posting links to some articles and petitions because I feel like it’s more helpful than sitting around being depressed. This is not an extensive list. If anyone has info on other organizations to help marginalized peoples please feel free to leave info in comments.
