Now more than ever it is imperative that we get out and vote. This pandemic has changed our normalcy. We are still in a major public health crisis and we live with a constant reminder to practice the 3 W’s – wash your hands; wear your mask; and watch your distance.
The coronavirus is still going strong with spiking cases; protests and marches are continuing in the wake of the horrific shooting of Jacob Blake; mass unemployment, systemic racism, and social injustice is blatantly prevalent. This current moment demands our unapologetic pursuit of justice for all.
From the COVID-19 pandemic to the senseless violence that continues to happen within our communities all over this nation day after day, we are seeing the ill effects of generations of piecemeal solutions and compromises with white supremacy that lead to the criminalization, dehumanization, and ultimate death of Black and brown people.
The reality is that systemic racism is something that has been spreading throughout this country for centuries. We can’t afford to say OK that it will run its course, we need to pivot and go in another direction and demand change by protesting, voting, and changing policies.
The vote is the most powerful non-violent change agent you have in a democratic society. You must use it because it is not guaranteed. You can lose it.John Lewis
