Voting Power, Your Power

Our voices are heard when we vote together.

Dr. Ryan A. Starzyk

So many things are on the ballot this year:

  • We have climate change, which is an existential threat to humanity.
  • Our health care system is imploding under the stress of COVID-19.
  • Women’s rights are threatened.
  • Racial tensions are higher than ever before in history.
  • Education is failing our future generations and crushing so many with unprecedented debt.
  • The right to vote is under attack.
  • Corporate influence in our political system has reached unfathomable levels.
  • Wages are stagnant, and our economy is on the brink of a depression.
  • Tax breaks benefit the top 1%.
  • We are experiencing a mental health crisis.
  • Veterans are taking their own lives.

Yet we sit here angry, frustrated, and with the power to change it all.

Vote like your life depends upon it because it does.
