: "In this pivotal moment in time of such intense and hateful rhetoric and policies that are tearing away our rights more and more, we must ensure we vote. But in order for voting to actually work, it is crucial to make sure we are also organizing. ⁣
Even though the voting system is flawed in this country, voting is an important act. Otherwise, there wouldn’t be such a concerted effort to suppress our votes. The recent attacks on USPS by the current administration is an attempt to disrupt our ability to safely vote by mail. ⁣
We must fight to vote because voting in this political moment is critical. Like protesting, voting is one tool of many in our toolbox in organizing for a better world. It’s not the end-all-be-all. We shouldn’t put all our hopes onto politicians. But voting can be a powerful tool to support progressive candidates who uplift the vital organizing work happening around the country.
Our votes can help determine the lives and futures of immigrants, of Black folks, of women, of trans and queer people. Our votes can help determine our access to healthcare we need, which is especially important given our country’s dire situation during this pandemic. Our votes can help determine policies around protecting our earth from climate change.⁣
We must continue to organize, but we must not ignore the importance of voting, especially on the local level. Your vote does matter.⁣"
