What's more, thousands of people who can’t make it to the District on Inauguration Day are reportedly planning to attend protests against Trump in their local areas.

Donate: For those unable to participate in a protest but still want to support a cause, many groups are accepting monetary donations to help fund their efforts. Some organization still need help providing transportation, shelter and supplies for people planning to attend protests in the nation’s capital and other areas throughout the U.S., and a donation could go a long way in helping groups get the most participation for their causes.

Volunteer: If traveling isn’t an option but free time is available, people can spend a few hours volunteering at local organizations, agencies and non-profit groups fighting for causes that may be directly affected by Trump’s incoming policy – and there are plenty of them from immigration to race relations and women’s rights. Search for local organizations and get involved.

Write to representatives: One of the best ways to protest Trump and support issues that could be adversely affected by his policy is by writing to local government reps. Send letters or emails requesting representatives take the necessary action and do all they can to prevent legislation that could have serious effects on societal concerns. After all, representatives are put into office because of the voters, so speak up on the causes that are of most concern. To find a local rep, check HERE.
