President Barack Obama once said, "Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek."
In order to create a more democratic, just, and accepting world, we must rewrite the systems that define and create our society. We must actively fight for any progress we wish to achieve. The history of America is not a history of progress and rights being handed to us; it is a history of brave individuals who stood in the face of adversity and demanded change.
Once again, we are at a crossroads. This year’s election will define legislative models for years to come on issues such as climate change, civil rights, immigration, and health care. Contrary to popular belief, the fate of these issues will not solely be determined by the presidential election, but will be greatly impacted by the elections that lay lower on the ballot.
We’re making it as easy as possible for millions of volunteers like you to get involved with crucial down ballot races with our new dashboard: ActVote.win.
