The 2020 Election is the greatest test we face to save our democracy.
With everything going on in our country, it’s easy to be worried about the election. We believe that action can be an antidote to anxiety, which is why we have researched organizations that provide actions to help you support progressive candidates, protect voting rights, or encourage getting out the vote. Whether you do one, or all 27, every bit helps.
Democracy is not just about one, it’s about everyone. It’s also about engaging in your community. We know that it’s more fun to participate with friends and other like-minded people (who may become new friends) than alone. Also, even if you live in a strongly progressive area, you can still play a significant role by helping get out the vote in other states.
Voting is a process: from registering, to researching candidates and ballot measures, to standing in a line. This year because of the global pandemic, mail in voting is more important than ever. But voting shouldn’t be intimidating and the right to vote should be respected and protected at every step. You can help ensure everyone is able to vote.
