Hi guys,

I thought it might be nice to have a thread where we can post resources for people who may be struggling, given the results of the election. Could we post links to helpful things (hotlines, shelters, planned parenthood) for people who are vulnerable right now?

PLEASE do not use this thread to debate. This is for supporting folks who may be targeted at this time. I'll start with a few, let me know if any of these are problematic.

Here is the trans lifeline phone # and website:
US: (877) 565-8860
Canada: (877) 330-6366
http://www.translifeline.org/

Information on obtaining your passport/ID for trans people:
http://www.transequality.org/know-your-rights/passports

GLBT National Youth Talkline:
Toll-free 1-800-246-PRIDE
(1-800-246-7743)
http://www.glbthotline.org/talkline.html

Please please please add to this with other resources, especially those for minorities, Muslims, immigrants, GSMs, women, abusive victims, etc.

Very good idea! I'll add to this list later.

probably obvious, but don't forget the American Civil Liberties Union: https://www.aclu.org/

donate what you can, they will be on the front lines against whatever new laws come down the pike.
