Write a let­ter ev­ery day

San Francisco Chronicle Late Edition - - FROM THE COVER -

I was in­spired by Joe Garo­foli’s “Trump foe urges ‘acts of daily re­sis­tance’ ” ( Jan. 12): My daily act of re­sis­tance will be to send a hand­writ­ten let­ter each day to a leg­is­la­tor about a topic of con­cern to me. This in­cludes the pro­tec­tion of the Af­ford­able Care Act, fund­ing for Planned Par­ent­hood and women’s re­pro­duc­tive rights in gen­eral, the rights of im­mi­grants to seek a bet­ter life in the United States, LGBTQ rights, and the need to ad­dress cli­mate change.

Un­for­tu­nately, the list of con­cerns un­der a Don­ald Trump pres­i­dency is a long one. Sure, my one let­ter a day is not likely to make a dif­fer­ence, but what if oth­ers joined me in this ef­fort? It feels bet­ter to take some sort of ac­tion than to pas­sively sit and worry about a very un­cer­tain fu­ture. Cathy Somer­ton, San Car­los
