Leslie's Voice

We will define this new presidency. It will not define us.

The ballots have abeen cast and counted and the news stations have  called it. The outcome of this election has shown us just how much work we still have to do.

First, take a deep breath. We know from history how the worst-case scenario might pan out. Fear is a natural reaction. Luckily, we have the time to make a difference and prevent that outcome.

We take action.

We work together.

We show the world the American people are not defined by an embarrassing president-elect with no manners.

While he may be the next head of the executive branch, we know that the government’s power really comes from the people.

We organize. We rally. We vote. We take back Congress in two years and unify behind a kickass candidate in four.

We make demands of our representatives in the legislative branch. To uphold checks and balances. To make necessary changes to ensure the fiasco of this election session, which has brought out the worst in almost everyone, never happens again.

This is the tipping point. This is where we make our stand and together, we say, “Enough.” We say, “Not today, Patriarchy.”

We will facilitate change. We will endure.

Please reach out to your friends and family–especially those who may be endangered by this new administration. Reassure them that you have their backs. Show them  you’re committed to keeping America safe for everyone.

Yes, everyone.

It’s starts here. It starts now. It starts with each of us. We all need to act. Together, we’ll show the world what truly makes America great.

  1. Thank you! I needed to read these words today. My heart sank when I heard the election results! It sank deep. I feel such a loss for womankind! I sank down to a loss of words. I am grappling. I need to know I am not alone in this!


  2. Thank you, though I just don’t feel like I can rally. I want to. I so desperately want to feel strong…feel like I can overcome anything. But today….today I feel abandoned, invisible…I feel pain.


  3. Sorry to sound stupid but didn’t you just ” make a stand”. You just had a free and fair election. Where I come from, Australia, we accept election results with good will and humility. From this side of the sea your sore loser tantrums make us understand why your side lost.
