Post-Election Resources and Safety Planning
In a lot of ways, we are living in unprecedented times and there is still so much uncertainty around the Election. We wanted to share some helpful resources following the immediate aftermath of the Election, which as of the time of this writing are still unknown.
If anyone needs anything or has any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us (email is typically the best way to communicate at the moment, given how many of our staff are still working remotely). Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any specific TA requests.
In the meantime, here is a roundup of resources to assist advocates and program directors. Please utilize for yourselves and for your clients. If you have additional resources you think might be helpful, please email them to email@example.com. We will be updating this list as needed.
