#WhyWeVote: If you don’t vote, you don’t count!

Election Day - November 4 – this year will mark the first time in nearly 50 years voters go to the polls without some of the most critical protections of the Voting Rights Act. But we cannot let that stop us. We must use our vote to tell Congress that it must act to restore the Voting Rights Act.

>> We must use our vote to tell Congress that it must act to restore the Voting Rights Act.

#WhyWeVote: Economic Justice for All Americans

There are far too many hardworking Americans who work full-time and still find themselves either living in poverty, or just getting by. However, there are two policy changes that could address this situation and help America achieve economic justice: increasing the minimum wage and ensuring equal pay for equal work.

>> Take action: All Americans deserve wages that are fair and just. This November 4, take a stand for economic justice and vote.

#WhyWeVote: Immigrants' Rights Matter

Election Day – November 4 – is a time to make your voice heard on issues like immigration reform. Despite overwhelming support for comprehensive immigration reform and Senate passage of a comprehensive immigration reform bill (S. 744) last year, the House of Representatives has failed to act.

>> Take action: The rights of immigrants matter. Vote on November 4 because if you don't vote, you don't count.
