You Don’t Have to Go It Alone When You Speak Out Against Trump

You Don’t Have to Go It Alone When You Speak Out Against Trump


The daily headlines are overwhelming and nonstop. The Trump “agenda” is a perpetually moving target.

But the Indivisible agenda is basic: resist the Trump administration.

Indivisible Tacoma exists to make sure you don’t have to go it alone.

You are one person with demands on your time and energy. Meanwhile, you (like many others) find yourself at odds with Trump’s agenda. No one expects you to single-handedly respond to all that is repugnant within the current administration.

Here’s What You Can Do

With amplification through Indivisible Tacoma: speak with your own voice. Take steps that align with your personal values and strengths. Resist the presidential actions that strike the very core of your identity. Take heart in knowing that your Indivisible Tacoma community is behind you. Our individual efforts may differ but our collective action makes up a full complement against the Trump administration.

In reality, perhaps no single person can effectively tackle election reform, racism, immigration, nuclear war, nepotism, taxation biases, health care, special interest groups, environmental protection, women’s rights, ableism, or foreign collusion by themselves. No one expects you to right all of these wrongs by yourself.

But as a member of Indivisible Tacoma, you don’t have to. Speak up to Donald Trump’s “agenda” in whatever manner reflects your voice, your passions, and your concerns. You are not alone–and your voice sounds in harmony with hundreds of other local, like-minded individuals who stand in chorus with you.

Speak your mind. Express the concerns that matter most to you. Communicate and engage in ways that work best for you. Share your voice and your story with Indivisible Tacoma. Take your own steps and take comfort in knowing that you have leveled a collective roar against the Trump regime.

We know that by ourselves, we can’t resist and defeat Trump all alone. But we also know that we don’t have to.

We are Indivisible, Tacoma, and together, we can fight Donald Trump’s agenda today to ensure the future and progress of American democracy tomorrow.

Resist Those Who Profit from Human Misery!

Today’s post comes from a freshman activist who attended the Tacoma City Council meeting regarding the Northwest Detention Center:

Those who profit and flourish, monetarily and/or ideologically, from the Trump agenda, are smart enough to distance themselves from his name and his rhetoric. But they still base their arguments on some well-dressed variation of, "Let’s agree, those bleeding-heart liberals simply don’t get how things really work."

This bleeding heart begs to differ.

Yesterday, countless brave members of the community shared testimonies about life-or-death health care crises, rape and sexual assault, malnutrition, extortion, exploitation of labor, lack of due process, willful separation of families, and near-complete lack of either operational accountability or transparency in the Northwest Detention Center. Representatives for this company, which profits from human misery, stood in their suit and ties, arguing essentially this:

Nevermind the snowflakes; there is no avalanche.

To which I say: no! Resist. Resist. Resist. Find solidarity through your Indivisible Tacoma community. By whatever legal means you’re comfortable with, and for whichever issues Trump stirs that strike most against your core values, speak up with your elected officials.

You don’t even have to be politically liberal or a so-called snowflake to take these urgent, important steps. You just have to resist some part the Trump agenda.

Don’t assume that Facebook activism actually accomplishes anything. March, boycott, and picket, but perhaps most potently, take the unglamorous, seemingly boring actions of engaging in everyday democracy, every day.

Your actions and your voice and most of all, your tenacity, are the undoing of those who, blatantly or tacitly, support a fascist president and take strength in a wink-nod approach that underestimates your power. Expose the cracks in that approach by making yourself heard.

Be indivisible, Tacoma.
