In the wake of Trump’s victory, we must redouble our efforts to debate, connect and organise against hate and division.

openDemocracy is building a hugely improved web platform that gives you – the readers – more of a voice so that you can engage in what happens next. Supported by a stronger editorial team and much better networking for our supporters, we will build a resilient, self-sustaining global arena which defends, builds and sustains human rights and democracy.

openDemocracy is precisely the sort of space that Trump and authoritarians across the world would love to shut down. Help keep us open, and growing, so that together we can rise to this moment and hear the voices that autocrats would silence.

Thanks to the generous support of the Open Society Foundation, any donation you make to support our new platform will be doubled.
