The feminist Ms. Foundation for Women wants supporters to send Trump a valentine, telling him they’ve got “no love for bigotry.”
MoveOn.org is organizing a series of “Let’s Make a Date” rallies across the country tomorrow, urging members of Congress to hold town hall meetings with their constituents.
