WHAT TO DO TODAY USA ELECTION 2020

2020 has been a year. From COVID19 to the resurgence of the struggle for racial equity and Black Lives Matter to calling for greater collecive accountability, we're all likely barely surviving. However, it's time to do more. We have less than 100 days until the United States of America 2020 Election. Now is the time to show up, engage, & take action. Daily you can find a list of events, actions, & news to help.

Days Until USA Election 2020 (CT)
Day 78

Day 78

This week is the 100th year anniversary of the 19th Amendment. Or, better yet, we should remember that this week is only the 100th year anniversary of the 19th Amendment.

Even more timely? Last night, being the sci-fi nerd I am, in watching Lovecraft Country last night many pointed to how Lovecraft Country included several images such as the tribute to Gordon Park’s 1956 photograph outside a department store in Mobile, Alabama demonstrating the only to recent segregated past of the United States.

One of the simplest things each of us can do is to reach out to people within our network, help them develop a voting plan, and keep your folks engaged.
