Elections are one of the most important moments we can use to shape the future of our community. They impact all of the issues that energize us, that keep us up at night, that move us to action. Now till November 6, we have the chance to make our mark on these issues through our voices and our votes.
Know your issue, research the candidates, and exercise your right to vote.
This is time to vote.
When we talk equity, we want to talk about intersectionality. How do candidates talk about racial equity, gender equity, equity for all people, no matter their ability, gender identity or sexuality? Do they talk about it at all? Do they incorporate these perspectives into discussions on other issues, or do they seem to tack them on later? Disparities can’t be addressed without complex thinking.
JOBS & THE ECONOMY
It’s getting harder and harder to find a safe, healthy and affordable place to live. Want to make sure that we are getting the funding we need to end homelessness, provide affordable housing and grow our communities in a way that doesn’t displace people? Investigate the platforms of your candidates for county commissioner.
KNOW THE ISSUES. KNOW YOUR BALLOT.
