This is an open letter to the Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau.

Over the last decade, we Canadians have watched the slow rise of fascism within the United States and felt powerless to stop it. The normalization of extrajudicial killings by the police, the repealed protections for members of the LGBT community, and now the inhumane concentration camps that brand people of Latine descent as being "illegals" under a conflated Mexican banner. Conditions any Canadian would  rightly view as appalling, but we have felt as foreigners completely unable to help.

This is our opportunity as Canadians to really make a difference. You have historically cultivated an image of standing up against these sorts of injustices. You have shown yourself to be the kind of person who cares about making things right with hurt and vulnerable demographics. This is your chance to put that image into action on the global scale. This is our opportunity as Canadians to be heroes.

I am making this petition to show you that Canadians and Americans alike are tired of our inaction. Americans are suffering and we want to help in whatever way we can. We are not as a country powerless in the face of fascism. This is a stand we want to take, together.
