BROADLY: What was your reaction when it was announced that Trump had enough votes to win the election?Jodeen Olguín-Tayler: It was terrifying. I’m deeply afraid for immigrants. I’m deeply afraid for my own family, who are immigrants. I’m afraid of the deportations and families being ripped apart. I’m afraid of people being kicked off benefits. I’m afraid for black lives. I’m afraid for Muslim Americans and immigrants. I’m afraid for a very violent resurgence of normalizing rape culture. I think it is incredibly important that we do what we’re doing today, which is to come out, stand together, and show that any attack on our communities is an attack on all of us. We are also here to say that Trump does not have a mandate. He did not win the popular vote, and he certainly does not have a mandate to govern people of color in this country.What does it mean to assert that Trump does not have the right to govern people of color? What steps are you taking to challenge Trump?Well, we’re starting with these mobilizations. We’re asking people to take a pledge to take ongoing action [against Trump] in the first 100 days [of his presidency] and beyond. There’s a network of activists and women of color-led organizations that are continuing to move forward with our agenda for equality. Fifty-three percent of white women voted for Trump. There’s a lot of education that needs to happen.We are also working with our white women allies, which is important because it’s no secret that this vote was divided along racial lines. We saw over 97 percent of women of color voting for a candidate who would have allowed us to continue our work to improve the lives of all people in this country, and we saw that white voters and white women were not with us. Fifty-three percent of white women voted for Trump. There’s a lot of education that needs to happen in terms of how many people are actually voting against their own interests based on this radicalized fear that has come out of the Trump campaign and the GOP more broadly. They have very intentionally riled this up. They have riled up a fear of “economic insecurity” so that they can do what they have done for over 50 years, which is scapegoating and othering people of color and immigrants. In reality, the GOP has no intentions of addressing their constituents’ economic concerns.
