vote! Vote!! VOTE!!!
This month's liberation action is Voting.
Election day is Tuesday Nov 8.
This is a simple way to translate your values into action. For people whose very identities are politicized, we don’t have the privilege of “staying out of politics.” So here it is, front and center in this black-woman led company's newsletter. A call to action to reflect on the systems of power at play and vote!
- Hold time on your calendars,
- remind your colleagues, and
- give grace for meetings that day.
And if you want to review (or share) information to better understand what’s at stake in these elections, check out Vote411 or Ballotpedia. (Only Vote411 is linked here.) Based on your entered address, these tools help you evaluate candidates and issues that will be on your ballot.
“Not voting is not a protest,
it is a surrender.”
-Keith Ellison, Minnesota's first black Attorney General
