Despite Trump victory, we must remain a voice against injustice

As a community advocate in Merced fighting for health and justice for all, it is hard to acknowledge the fact Donald Trump is now president-elect for the United States of America. For over a year we heard Trump put fear in the lives of many by degrading women, insulting people by their race, gender, and religion, and igniting violence between people and further dividing our country. People throughout our community are afraid and they should know there are organizations in our community such as Building Healthy Communities where people can come, ask questions, seek support and mobilize to continue pushing for a safe and inclusive community for all. Merced communities will rise when we all stand together and support each other. Never be afraid to get loud and be a voice against injustice.
