We have all seen that there are articles from every major new source warning of threats of physical violence, harassment, and other forms of intimidation at polling locations, there are also concerns over there not being a peaceful transition of power if Trump were to loose.
So, what do we do as progressives to fight against this attack on democracy, we organize, we build coalitions.
In light of recent news, ORCA reached out to our allies to begin discussion on how to address these concerns. People from more than a dozen organizations have come together to fight to protect our democracy.
