My sister told me Sunday that she wants donations to Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, or the social justice organization of my choice for the holidays. (see: this list from Jezebel)

For the smol people in my life, I'm planning on gifting books with diverse characters (by diverse creators). resources on where to find diverse books

Consider also purchasing gifts from Black-owned businesses, and boycotting companies that do business with and/or back the Trump family.

It's a small thing, and won't cure everything, but for me it's doable. I have to do holiday shopping anyway, and I don't have oodles of spare cash floating around to make donations and buy holiday things and pay my own bills. (I figure excess credit card debt right now is probably just fueling the Trump train, so.)

This is a thing I can do.

My own holiday wish list includes some diverse books/media, and also donations. Possibly yarn for charity knitting? I doubt I can get my brother to break away from buying-from-Amazon, but perhaps other people in the family will.
