The ability to vote is our power to change things!

The 2016 elections taught us that voting services must be available year-round and not just a few weeks prior to an election, people need to gather in a community to learn about national, state and local policy/politics and not just sit at home in front of their computer or on their phone and finally people want to know what to do to create the change they want. In order to end voter suppression, people need to understand whose vote is being suppressed, why it is being suppressed and what options are available to fight and ultimately end voter suppression.

Under-served communities require many different voter services that include: voter registration, Photo ID review, Restoration of Rights for Returning Citizens information, rides to pick up Photo ID and rides to the polls.

Our "COVID-19 and the 2020 Elections" webinar series launches with this two-day event that tackles what must be done to sustain momentum towards fair elections despite the uncertainties caused by the pandemic.  We believe that now, when things are so difficult and uncertain, is when we must build unity towards one essential goal - a fair and free election.  

Speakers will address:

  • Exacerbation of existing biases within voting systems;
  • The tanking U.S. economy and how elections are important for breaking excessive ties between work and healthcare that threaten to bankrupt huge numbers of American worker households
  • Inadequate access to reliable information and relentless attacks on an open and independent press.
