Start Early. Stop Trump Today.

anti-trump-rattleI write heist fiction. I write about poor women of color who rob unscrupulous rich white men. I woke up this morning with a prayer that today’s Electoral College vote will be an intervention in the heist of our democracy. Unlike in my books, I’m not rooting for the crook.

I sent them an email. I find hope in the fact that the electoral college has decided in the past to intervene and keep unfit men from taking office. May they do it again today. Let’s help.

Email the electors directly. I just saw this today on Twitter & did it. It took me five minutes. Longer than it should have because Yahoo wouldn’t send to all the electors in one email & I had to break it into two chunks. Tip: only copy half the emails from the website at a time, it’s a hassle to try to delete some of them once they’re pasted into the “to:” field.

So I sent the email. And now I’ll be praying. And shaking my Latinos Against Trump Juju Rattle (see above). If there was ever a time that we needed good juju, it’s today.
