- We know what’s at stake in this election: abortion access across America, the future of affordable health insurance for millions of people, protection of Black and brown Americans from criminalization and state violence, the fundamental rights of transgender communities, guaranteeing a living wage and labor justice for workers, especially undocumented workers, protecting the land and autonomy of Indigenous communities, and so much more. We will not stop until we are safe to exist as we are, to forge families that we love, and to live in nourishing communities.
- The roots of white supremacy run deep in the United States. It’s no surprise that the racist institutions and processes that hold people of color back, including voter suppression, police and state violence, and unequal access to healthcare, have culminated in a nationwide reckoning around racial injustice, and an uprising for Black lives. We will not fold.
- What do abortion and voting have in common? They’re critical ways we exercise our agency and determine the direction of our lives. We make decisions based on what’s best for our values, what supports our families and ourselves, what options we have economically, and the paths we want to chart forward. It’s critical that we all have our voices heard when we cast our votes.
