UPDATE: WOW. The response to this form has been INCREDIBLE. For those who are just now signing up - a little context. I created this form at Midnight on Thursday after election day, for the 30-40 people in my friend circles who I figured would be willing to respond to the one request I had received for accompaniment. This list is now 5,500 people as of this writing, so for those signing up - it is more likely than not that we have more folks offering to accompany than those who are requesting. That said, it is CLEAR that you all want to find a way to support and protect your neighbors. By putting your name on this list, you will receive a few (I promise, just a few) ways to invest your energy and resources in the event that you never get tapped for accompaniment.
IF YOU OR ANYONE YOU KNOW NEEDS ACCOMPANIMENT: please email firstname.lastname@example.org, with "ACCOMPANIMENT REQUEST" in subject line. Do not give your personal information, but instead include: neighborhood commuting from, neighborhood commuting to, time accompaniment is needed, train line, and preference of who you would feel most comfortable commuting with. Please indicate if you need a accompaniment both ways.
We have a long fight ahead of us, and are going to need to find ways to support and protect our neighbors not only in the first few days of a Trump presidency, but for the next 4-8 years. Stay engaged, stay activated. We need all hands on deck
