The “Post Trump edition” of the Feminist Community Archive of Washington (FCA WA) was needed to highlight the work of local organizations in response to Trump’s many failures to serve the people, record a truthful account of history, and to honor those whose lives were lost or made much worse due to these failures. There are four major areas where these organizations worked to combat his failures: immigration, education, mutual aid, and queer communities. When Trump was first elected, there was a large group of privileged people who downplayed the very real threat he posed. They gaslit members of marginalized communities because they could not see how their privilege insulated them from the harmful policies enacted during the Trump administration. This edition of FCA-WA holds the Trump administration accountable while also giving recognition to the organizations that altered their agenda or were created in response to the Trump administration’s criminal negligence.
