Among the national organizations that could potentially suffer under the looming Trump administration is Planned Parenthood, a reproductive health nonprofit that endorsed Hillary Clinton for president and is often targeted for proving abortions to women in need.
Which is why pop superstar Katy Perry—who campaigned for Clinton herself—just gave the group $10,000. "It's time to turn words into action," she wrote in the caption to an Instagram post of her donation. "There are so many steps to take, but my first vow is to support organizations that may have their funding support taken from them in the future by the government." She went on to explain how Planned Parenthood "educated me on my body and my reproductive health, so that I could focus on my dreams and using my voice until I knew the timing was right for me to make a plan to have a family."
Other organizations seeing a flood of donations following Trump's election victory are the American Civil Liberties Union (which has vowed to challenge any and all of his unconstitutional agenda in court), the Southern Poverty Law Center (which fights hate groups and bigotry with educational campaigns), and the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (which is the country's largest anti-sexual violence institution). And if you want to do more than just contribute cash, all of these places need volunteers, too!
