Top 5 Reasons Why You Need to Vote

Published

on

Didn’t have a chance to make it out to early voting? Or were you one of the many voters who thought early voting continued today?

Tomorrow is your last chance (from 7 am to 7 pm) to let your voice be heard. If the thought of standing in line for hours is too fearful, here are some of the top reasons why you should vote:

  • Voting is the great equalizer. The richest billionaire in America gets just one vote, the same as me.
  • The people who don’t want you to vote because they are afraid of how you’ll vote – have won.

  • To honor people who struggled for civil rights, women’s suffrage, disability and equal rights and the ideals of justice for all whose diverse voices are essential for our nation’s moral health and community vitality. Freedom needs affirmation.
  • Regret is preventable. Nov. 7 is one day too late, and “could have, should have” are sorry alternatives to acting. Have a “no excuses” attitude by committing to vote, ask others to join us in voting, and promote a positive approach to making a difference among family, friends and colleagues.
  • Non-voters are voiceless and by not participating can become victims of their own neglect.

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.
