On November 8
our country will not only choose a president, but also representatives at every level of government and whether or not to enact certain measures.
For some of you, this presidential election has made you feel as though your voice and your vote don’t matter. But, take it from me
, your voice and your vote do matter. There is so much that hangs in the balance, that your voice and your vote matter greatly. The candidates who are elected and the measures and propositions that are approved and rejected will impact our communities for years to come.
So often the decisions made by politicians don’t benefit or reflect the voice and the will of the people in the neighborhoods they serve. We have to change that!I have spent my life organizing people to make changes that impact their own lives and the world around them and I have learned that we have tremendous power, if we vote together.
Election Day is the most important day of your life! Join the millions of people across the country and in your own community who will join together to vote for what and who they want.First, you have to register right now, it takes just a few text messages.
Then, pledge to show up on election day. Choose to be a part of a larger group of people who want to see the same changes you do. Choose to be a voice for social justice, women’s rights, access to education, equality and more!
The great social justice changes in our country have happened when people came together, organized, and took direct action. It is this right that sustains and nurtures our democracy today. Pledge to come together, pledge to organize your friends, your family, and your neighbors to take the direct action of voting.
Every moment is an organizing opportunity, every person a potential activist, every minute a chance to change the world. This is even more true during an election season when we can exercise our right to have a direct say in what happens and who decides. I know it feels like change is slow and hard to come by, but I’m here to tell you that "¡Si Se Puede!”, but only if you vote!
