Yesterday We Mourn, Today We Fight

I acknowledge that Donald Trump is the president. I understand, intellectually, that he won the election. But I do not accept that our country has descended into the hatred-swirled slop pile that he lives in. I reject out of hand the notion that we have thrown up our hands and succumbed to racism, xenophobia, misogyny, and crypto-fascism. I do not accept that. I reject that. I fight that. Today, and tomorrow, and every day until the next election, I reject and fight that story.

– Leslie Knope

On Friday, November 11th, I participated in a peaceful protest at the Love Trumps Hate Rally at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, CA. These photos were taken by me. The quote that I used above is from “A letter to America from Leslie Knope, regarding Donald Trump” which you can read here. Sincerely, Alexis Renae Griggs
