#Beyond100Days of Trump

We’ve made it through the first 100 days of the Trump administration. It was a period marked by chaos and continued assaults on our rights and freedoms, in the US and around the world. 

But at the same time, there’s been hope. Our progressive movements have grown in strength and in numbers, mobilizing a powerful resistance to policies fueled by hate and fear. It’s on us all to sustain this momentum – through the next 100 days and beyond.

In the coming days, we’ll be sharing resources on the threats we face, the policies we demand, and how we can resist together.

In the face of mounting abuses of women’s rights, MADRE stands ready to do what we do best: defend the rights of women worldwide. 

We know we can do this. Because we’ve resisted under threatening US administrations before. And because we have over 30 years of experience working with grassroots women’s organizations around the world to meet urgent needs for women and communities impacted by harmful US foreign policy.

Together—MADRE, our grassroots partners, and you—can resist dangerous policies that violate human rights. And we can move beyond resistance to build the peaceful, just world we all need.
