As of 2:40 a.m., November 9, Donald Trump has been declared the president elect. Hillary Clinton reportedly called Trump to concede the election shortly before.

This is it.

The results of this election will most certainly ensure that some die, some are injured, and some are irreparably changed for the worst. Our rights will be threatened and our well-being will be challenged.

Our thoughts are with those marginalized & minority groups to whom this horrific news affects the most.

Tomorrow, we fight harder than ever for progressive goals and Democratic freedom.

We have so much work to do.
