Writers Against Trump are American writers who have come together to oppose the racist, destructive, incompetent, corrupt and fascist regime of Donald Trump, and to give their language, thought, and time to his defeat in November. They believe that this presidency is uniquely dangerous to our present and future society. Writers Against Trump collaborates with organizations seeking to encourage voter turnout, promote candidates who resist the Trump apparatus, protect the election from fraud and theft, and mobilize in the event of post-election trouble.
Writers are well-positioned to advocate for our democracy. They understand the strength of words, of rhetoric. Collectively, American writing has brought so much change. And Writers Against Trump seek to honor the legacies of the revolutionary writers who came before us by joining in now——and their choir must be deafening.
The brutal and criminal regime called an “administration” may remain in power a while longer, spewing disinformation, exacerbating ill health, earth-hatred, obscene inequality, race- and woman-hatred, and encouraging violence, but as an unintended consequence, writers and booksellers across the nation are coming together to resist. Join us in this struggle.
