Jennifer Lawrence is trying to keep hope alive during this dark time.

After Donald Trump somehow managed to triumph over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Presidential race, half the country has been left devastated and terrified of the probable social injustices to come.

Luckily, in a passionate op-ed for Broadly out Thursday, the Hunger Games actress highlighted the reasons why the election's outcome is so troubling for so many people, writing:

"Is this the stark reality? It doesn't matter how hard you work or how qualified you are, at the end of the day, if you're not a man? Is that what we just learned? This country was founded on immigration and today the only people that feel safe, that their rights are recognized and respected are white men."

But as tragic as the thought of a Trump presidency is… the blonde bombshell is asking us all to work toward protecting our future, rather than dwelling on a past we can't change, saing:

"I want to be positive; I want to support our democracy, but what can we take away from this? It's a genuine question that we all need to ask ourselves. We shouldn't blame anyone, we shouldn't riot in the streets. We should think strongly and clearly about what to do next because we cannot change the past."

The 26-year-old championed for concerned individuals to research the causes that need protection, support those fearful of facing discrimination, and fight back against injustices.

And while she admitted the situation is bleak… she doesn't think we should lose faith:

"If you're a woman and you're worried that no matter how hard you work or how much you learn, there will always be a glass ceiling, then I don't really know what to say. I don't know what I would tell my daughter if I were you. Except to have hope. To work for the future."

She concluded with a powerful call to action, exclaiming:

"We're all allowed to be sad that the present isn't what we thought it was. But we mustn't be defeated. We will keep educating ourselves and working twice as hard as the man next to us because we know now that it is not fair. It is not fair in the workplace, so you make it impossible to fail. And like Hillary, it might not work.

But like Hillary, you can still be an inspiration and get important things done. Do not let this defeat you — let this enrage you! Let it motivate you! Let this be the fire you didn't have before. If you are an immigrant, if you are a person of color, if you are LGBTQ+, if you are a woman — don't be afraid, be loud!"

Well said, Jennifer.

Do U think most minorities should be fearful of President Trump??
