Your Vote is Your Voice!

Published

Friday, Nov. 2 is the last day for early voting. If you miss your opportunity on Friday, you might have to stand in lines for hours on Tuesday, Nov. 6 – Election Day. Polls are open Nov. 2 from 8 am to 8 pm.

Entertainment mogul Oprah Winfrey made an impassioned plea to voters today to not less this opportunity pass them by.

“For anybody here who has an ancestor who didn’t have the right to vote, and you are choosing not to vote — wherever you are in this state, in this country — you are dishonoring your family,” Winfrey said in Marietta, Georgia, an Atlanta suburb. “You are disrespecting and disregarding their legacy, their suffering and their dreams, when you don’t vote.”

The Fight of His Life

Published

on

Not to be confused with the late Elija Cummings, United States House of Representative for Maryland’s 7th Congressional District and civil rights advocate, Georgia Congressman and Civil Rights icon John Lewis recently announced that he has been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. 

Lewis, 79, has served in Congress since 1986, representing Georgia’ 5th Congressional District.  Celebrated for his fight for civil rights, Lewis is also recognized for joining forces and marching alongside Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1965 to lead a voting rights march out of Selma, Alabama.

Lewis doesn’t plan on giving up now.  Realizing he will have to miss work and maybe even a few important key votes, he knows he is in the fight of his life with hopes of getting back to the front of the battle lines soon.
