Day 5 of Trumpocracy: The cabinet

Posted | 0 comments

I'm back from the forest, and the short list is out. It is worse than we feared. Notably, Rick Scott made the short list for the Health & Human Services Secretary position. Let me say that another way. The man who recently tried to enact a "health" bill restricting access to abortion by stripping away Medicaid from women's health clinics such as Planned Parenthood made Trump's short list for the Health & Human Services Secretary position. This means women's right to access basic healthcare is very likely under attack, just as we suspected.

This means women across the country need to start organizing NOW.

If you're in the Tallahassee area, come to the Planned Parenthood of Tallahassee volunteer meeting tonight at 7:30 at Oasis. Also, if you're in the Tallahassee area, get in touch with me if you're interested in joining a Tallahassee chapter of National Women's Liberation, a grassroots, radical feminist organization that's been fighting in the women's liberation movement since the 1960s. I'm gathering interested names in preparation for a meeting soon.

If you're in the NYC area, you can join NWL there.

If you're in the Gainesville area, you can join NWL there. They have a meeting coming up on Tuesday, November 15.

If you're in none of these areas, find a local feminist organization and get moving! Get in touch with me if you'd like help finding a feminist organization in your area.

No matter where you are, consider making travel arrangements to attend the Women's March on Washington in D.C.

Now's the time to start acting. We cannot "wait and see" what he will do. We already see who he is selecting, and it's terrifying. The time to act is NOW.
