Donald Trump is Not Who We Are

To defeat Donald Trump, we need to build a movement from the bottom-up, in every corner of the country. We can’t leave it to politicians or the media - it’s up to us to take a stand and to protect our friends and co-workers most at risk from mass deportations, religious bans and other forms of hate.

Starting an open letter is a powerful way to show that patriotic Americans are coming together, from all walks of life, all political beliefs and all racial and religious backgrounds, to affirm the values that make us who we are: diversity, openness and compassion.

Take a stand against Trump's brand of hate: Create an open letter to rally members of your company, place of worship, civic or affinity group to say, “Donald Trump is Not Who We Are”.

Once you’ve launched your open letter, we will be with you every step of the way, from getting your colleagues to sign on to getting your letter media attention so you can have the most impact.

  • Members of the Game Developers Community say: "Donald Trump is Not Who We Are"
    This is important as a member of the game developers community because we have listened to Donald Trump over more than a year with growing anxiety and we believe that Trump would be a disaster for game development, given the fact that he is bad for tech (and space for that matter) and has ties to organized crime. His vision stands against the open exchange of ideas, free movement of people, and productive engagement with the outside world in favor of his unpredictably isolationist, protectionist, anti-progress, anti-modernization, anti-tech, pro-Russia and pro-war views. Particularly, his views on war with nuclear weapons are particularly terrifying. Trump doesn't rule out using nukes on Europe, and insisted that other countries such as Japan and Saudi Arabia make them. He also has shown that he is unstable at most times, leading him to launch a nuclear attack against any country in any given moment. His Russia-friendly stance, as given by his repeated admiration of President Vladimir Putin is chilling. Also, a loud-mouthed Russian ultra-nationalist politician that is the leader of Russia's political party LDPR, Vladimir Zhirinovsky, who, despite being part of Russian opposition, is widely seen as a servant of Kremlin policy used to float radical opinions to test public reaction, is similar to Trump itself, and wants Americans to vote for Trump or face nuclear war which will end with millions of Americans dead and the US in ruins, with no Internet and space missions such as SpaceX's Interplanetary Transport System is totally ruined. Regardless of the outcome of this year's election, all of this will lead to our technological level being driven down below where it was posible, and the creation of an atmosphere where hate and lawlessness dominates whatever left of humanity, and that would be Russia as the mafia authoritarian nation-state left standing. Criminals will be everywhere, be it paid thugs, thieves, and contract killers. Lies and hypocrisy will be everywhere. Our planet will be unrecognizable in every aspect at a minimum. The English language will be extinct along with other languages save for the Russian language. There are no names left to remind anyone that there's ever been today's world. At a maximum, there is no progress but stagnation, oppression and corruption. Nothing ever changes, as journalist Oleg Kashin lamented, with tomorrow being the same, and the day after tomorrow, and after that, and forever. We tell you this not to be alarmist, but because, based on everything we know, we are ourselves alarmed. Russia has the capability to end life on the planet with instant impunity, given its new weapons making retaliation instant, undetectable and overwhelmingly lethal, especially if Trump loses in November. Nuclear war is not the only immediate grave concern that stops game development. Trump is anti-technology, and he seems to call for the Internet ban, and invite Russia to conduct cyber attacks on US institutions, including the Democratic National Committee. He, like Putin, is a technophobe who views the entire internet and computer ages as a "mixed bag" and thinks people should wean off both the Internet and computers, a move that goes well with not only Putin, but also individuals, including those who go by the name of "BatteryIncluded" on Wikipedia and "forcedmemefred" on Cheezburger's Know Your Meme. Trumpism could lead to creation of anti-tech movements which uses violence against those who invents and possesses tech, and it could be bad for game development. As humans, as Americans, and as game developers, we continue to develop games to educate people about the upcoming dangers and threats to humanity, and Donald Trump is really not who we are.

  • Members of the NextGen Climate Community say: "Donald Trump is Not Who We Are"
    This is important as a member of the NextGen Climate community because a vote for Trump is not a vote for climate and his energy plan could be disastrous to our environment. Trump wants to expand fossil fuel development and protect corporate polluters. He also wants to abolish the EPA which would be detrimental to our water and air. We only have one planet, should we really let this man ruin it?

    Members of the Women for Clinton Community say: "Donald Trump is Not Who We Are"
    This is important as a member of the Women for Clinton community... We have a strong voice for many reasons. As MOTHERS of children, family members who have special needs, as tax payers, as black, white, native Americans, latino, muslims, Christians, jews, Catholics we can't afford to have Donald Trump stomping on our beliefs. Trump has proven simply by speaking that he is a liar, masogonistic, bigoted, money grubing, egotistical, immoral and just simply not a nice, caring nor compassionate man. This is not someone we want to lead this country. Please get out and vote blue. Invite your friends and family on board.

  • Members of the veteran and disabled veteran community say: "Donald Trump is Not Who We Are"
    I am a disabled veteran and the disrespect that Donald Trump has show to veterans disgusts me. Donald Trump does NOT care about veterans at all. Its important that veterans speak out and not allow this heartless man to ever see the Oval office. He is NOT for veterans.
