The elections of 2020 will likely be the most important of our lifetime, with repercussions that will directly impact the futures of young people, many of which are not yet old enough to cast a vote. The “A Vote For Matt, Is a Vote For Me” campaign highlights the role we have as educated voters to speak up for the voiceless, advocate for our LGBTQ+ youth and most importantly make our vote count! We do this by inspiring young people who can vote, to register and exercise their rights, while also giving those too young to vote a platform to share their thoughts with adult allies who can, and should, vote on their behalf.
As we see increases in voter suppression around the country, it is vital
that we come together with our communities to overcome these barriers
and vote for candidates set on expanding, not limiting, rights. Voting and
getting involved in our local politics can help ensure we protect BIPOC
and LGBTQIA+ rights, even as the federal administration seeks to strip
their rights away. By “Voting for Matt,” and voting for progressive
candidates, you can help protect people like me.
