“Yor vote is precious, almost sacred. It is the most powerful non-violent tool we have to create a more perfect union.” -Rep John Lewis
The act of voting is one of the ways that you know youâ€™re alive and awake: that you know you matter, that you are enough to make a difference, that you have a voice that you will use, and that you know whatâ€™s at stake. Â So please,Â GET YOURSELF REGISTERED! Â Critical regiration deadlines are fast approaching, so don’t wait. Â Register now! Vote early if you can, and be sure your friends, family, Â and neighbors are registered too!
And while we’re on the subject of voting and civic engagement, I wanted to direct your attention to two fantastic articles by my dear friendÂ Sarah Sofie Flicker. Â She perfectly sums up the urgency of this moment and the power of your vote. Â As she writes,Â ”Even if you believe that politics have become a divisive, blurred, money machine of a shitshow, it does affect us.” Â So after you’ve registered, check out her pieces on HelloGiggles (here and here), they’reÂ DEFINITELY worth the read.
