Post-election blues hit Philadelphia particularly hard, a city where Hillary Clinton garnered 82 percent of the vote. It was bad.
But the blues were quick to fade, and folks are coming together to take action. Heather Squire is among them. Squire, a second-year Ph.D student at Temple University, is designing a map of local social movements and care providers in Philadelphia.
Squire needs to raise $7,000 to print 3,000 of them.
Think of the Philly Solidarity Map as a tool to continue cultivating unity among the city’s activists, organizers, service providers and concerned citizens under President Donald Trump. Plus, the map looks damn good.

The map, Squire writes on the project’s Kickstarter page, began as a cartography project, but was given new life after attending a post-election PHL Solidarity Forum meeting.
Squire is also mapping out consequences of policies surrounding reproductive health, minimum wage and education.-30-
