For the past few months, we’ve been working to increase our efforts centered around racial justice and equity (learn more about that here.) As we get closer to the 2020 election in the US, it’s become increasingly important to us that we encourage our community members to make their voices heard and vote — across all levels of government.
With the launch of our Vote 2020 campaign, we’re committing to using our platform in non-partisan support of voter activation and education to create lasting change and racial justice. In the next month and a half, we’ll be using our reach, community, and artists to help mobilize and inform in order to support increased voter access to information. Our goal is to encourage civic engagement in the protection of electoral freedoms everywhere.
Our first step will be to work with the League of Women Voters; Alliance for Youth Action; Civic Alliance; Common Cause; and Vote Early Day to share resources, toolkits, and information in the lead up to the US election on 3 November. We’ll be amplifying tools to get informed, get active, and get out there. Learn more about our partners below and check out our other Vote 2020 content and programming:
The League of Women Voters of the United States encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
A non-partisan, grassroots organization dedicated to upholding the core values of American democracy. They work to create an open, honest, and accountable government that serves the public interest; promote equal rights, opportunity, and representation for all; and empower all people to make their voices heard in the political process.
We’re looking forward to encouraging more voter awareness and engagement in our community and around the world.
Make your voice heard!
