#Beyond100Days: Protect Vulnerable Communities

We’ve made it through the first 100 days of the Trump administration. It was a period marked by chaos and continued assaults on our rights and freedoms, in the US and around the world. 

But at the same time, there’s been hope. Our progressive movements have grown in strength and in numbers, mobilizing a powerful resistance to policies fueled by hate and fear. It’s on us all to sustain this momentum – through the next 100 days and beyond.

We're sharing resources on the threats we face, the policies we demand, and how we can resist together. Click here to learn more.

In its first 100 days, the Trump administration targeted Muslims, refugees and immigrants with policies that rip families apart, deepen Islamophobia and promote hate and fear. Here are just a few examples:

Our Feminist Foreign Policy Demands

We call on the US to:

  • Repeal all racist and discriminatory travel and immigration policies. Uphold standards under international law – promises that the US has made to the world – as well as US law for the just treatment of refugees and asylum seekers.
  • Reject dangerous and xenophobic proposals, like the border wall, that separate families and violate human rights. Furthermore, policymakers must recognize that there can be No Borders on Gender Justice.
  • Immediately halt all policies and practices that target communities – often immigrants and communities of color – for racist policing, raids and discriminatory treatment.

Our Resistance with Women Worldwide – And You

The Trump administration seems determined to exacerbate refugee and humanitarian crises: denying people safe haven, cutting humanitarian aid budgets, worsening warfare and violence. In the face of fear and hate, we will continue to provide life-saving humanitarian aid.

In Central America, we work with local women to combat the poverty and violence that can force them to flee their homes.

  • We support an Indigenous Ixil women’s weaving collective in Guatemala to help women suffering extreme poverty and discrimination to raise vital income for their families and communities.
  • We train Indigenous women in Nicaragua in organic farming so they can feed their families. And we organize local farmers markets so that women can sell surplus produce and earn much-needed income to buy necessities for their children, like shoes, clothes and school books.

Join us as we advance these demands and our on-the-ground resistance!
