GMU Students for Hillary share why #WeGoHigh

First Lady Michelle Obama’s speech on campus inspired us to spread positivity.

Every campaign has a single scene that alters the course of an election, and every community has a moment that lives on in people’s memories. For our GMU Students for Hillary team, that moment came when we all got to shout “When they go low, we go high” with First Lady Michelle Obama during a campaign rally at Mason.

Michelle Obama has created unity among students who have worked so hard to bring social issues, like racial justice and sexual assault, to the forefront of our national discourse. We wanted to carry the energy from the First Lady’s message with us through each day — “When they go low, we go high!” And after brainstorming with 13-year-old Mariah Jackson, who was also inspired by the rally, we came up with a plan to do just that — with the hashtag #WeGoHigh.

This is not just a social media project. It’s a community building initiative. We are the generation that fights for social justice, marriage equality, criminal justice reform, decreases in student debt, immigration reform, and climate justice. All of these things matter now, and they will affect the future.

First Lady Michelle Obama inspired us to create and mobilize. Let’s continue to follow her advice. Let’s get to work and GO HIGH! With just three weeks left until election day, we need as many people as possible: Sign up here to knock on doors and help voters make a plan to vote for Hillary!

Together WE CAN, and together WE WILL elect Hillary Clinton as the next president of the United States.
