It seems like everyday this presidential administration does something even more horrifying than yesterday, and staying engaged while busy with your day-to-day responsibilities is overwhelming. While it’s important to support larger actions like participating in organized marches and protests (nationally, regionally, and locally), we researched some ways you can counter these daily attacks by using your phone and computer. If you have 5 minutes during your lunch break, on the bus, or while waiting in line, use these great tools and resources to make your voice heard.
We’re introducing a series of interviews with women who are doing amazing things—using their platform to amplify marginalized voices and spread awareness about social injustices. To kick off the series, we’re excited to introduce Candace Reels, founder of the LA-based feminist apparel brand and Instagram account, The Female Collective.
When I created the Nasty Woman shirt, donating to Planned Parenthood was an obvious way for me to say “fuck you, Trump.” His despicable attitude towards women, rampant sexism, and casual talk of sexually assaulting women only underscored the importance of organizations that champion access to affordable healthcare, offer sex education, and support women’s autonomy over our bodies. I’m also a longtime patient of Planned Parenthood and am frankly disgusted with attacks against the vital services they offer to women and men. With the popularity of the shirt and my desire to keep creating products that highlighted our collective desire to resist this administration, I wanted to expand the organizations Google Ghost donates to.
