The unimaginable has happened. President Trump.
Dear Mr. Trump,
This is not what greatness looks like.
The world rejects your fear, hate-mongering, and bigotry. We reject your support for torture, your calls for murdering civilians, and your general encouragement of violence. We reject your denigration of women, Muslims, Mexicans, and millions of others who don’t look like you, talk like you, or pray to the same god as you.
Facing your fear we choose compassion. Hearing your despair we choose hope. Seeing your ignorance we choose understanding.
As citizens of the world, we stand united against your brand of division.

On behalf of Ricken, Alice, Emma, Christoph and the whole Avaaz team.
PS - Here's a letter with some more thoughts on the moment we're in, and the plan going forward:
We wanted to write from the heart about what just happened in the US, and what's happening around the world.
The shock is justified - the most powerful nation in the world will be led by a breathtakingly ignorant, bigoted, violent, pathologically lying, sexually predatory, vengeful, authoritarian, corrupt reality TV star. Those aren't insults, they're facts.
How is democracy coming to this? How do we deal with it? We want to offer 5 points:
Ricken and the Avaaz team.
