Here are all the anti-Trump benefits and protests in NYC before Trump's inauguration

Of course it makes sense that this little tyke would break into talk show hosting. via Youtube screengrab

We’re just two and a half weeks out from the day when Trump will become the 45th President of the United States. I know it’s hard to hear. I actually like to write it out a few times, in the hopes that either Beetlejuice or the Candyman will appear to swallow the Cheeto whole. Cheeto, Cheeto, Cheeto. Anyway, since that out is looking less and less likely, all we can do is keep protesting, encouraging our elected officials to voice our concerns where they have clout and hit up a few comedy benefits and fundraisers in between.

With that in mind, here are a bunch of worthwhile events happening from tonight through Inauguration Day in NYC. We’ll keep adding to this list as more come in, but there’s already something here to keep you busy most every night between now and then. Most of these are free and all are affordable, btw, so check out as many as you can if you have the time! (I mean, with the time any of us have left.) (more…)

WELP our dystopian nightmare has entered the “conspiracy theories about Halloween decorations at Roberta’s” stage, so it doesn’t look like things are getting better anytime soon. We’ve been tracking lots of ways to join the resistance, from volunteer opportunities and bystander intervention training to being a DIY graffiti vigilante and attending a 31-hour anti-Trump comedy marathon. We’re just going to keep listing events and other opportunities here: If you know of any we should add, email tim[at]brokelyn.com or tell us in the comments. (more…)

Remember how BuzzFeed realized they were running out of listicle ideas and decided to move into the news business? Well, now they’re looking for a lot of editorial employees. It seems incredible that the company that published Game of Cats is taking on serious journalism, but, hey, someone’s got to bring order to this changing media landscape, right? Bonus: they’re hiring. Check below for some neat gigs from them, the ACLU, the Nets, and more. (more…)
