We Vote. We Count.

Your Right. Your Vote.

The right to vote cannot be unjustly denied. If you have had trouble voting we want the world to hear your story.

It’s time for the United States to adopt sound policies that include full voter protection at the polls. Fight for change.

Make It Count

Voting interference doesn’t just affect us at the polls—it affects our neighborhoods, families, and way of life. Both the 2020 Presidential Election AND the 2020 U.S. Census report provide an opportunity for voters to let their voices be heard, and their families be counted. Crucial decisions are made based on data from the U.S. Census report —including how schools, fire departments, and other public services in our communities are funded, and how we’re represented in the United States Congress. Communities of color have historically been underrepresented in the voting booth and in U.S. Census, with devastating consequences. In 2020 and beyond (elections at both the local, state and national level occur all the time!), let’s make our vote count at the polls—AND in the U.S. Census.
