2020 has been brutal so far.
Take care of yourselves and turn your anger into action. It really is the best medicine.
Wake up ten minutes earlier, set aside part of your lunch break, carve out some space after dinner, involve your kids in the process.
It does not take long to write letters or make some calls.
You will quickly see how fulfilling it can be and how great it will feel to know that you didn’t sit idly by.

Vote Forward is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit. Their mission is to empower grassroots volunteers to help register voters from under-represented demographics and encourage them to vote.
Sending a Vote Forward letter is one of the easiest things you can do to increase turnout. It takes two minutes and one stamp, and meaningfully increases the odds that the recipient will vote. A concrete action you can take, no matter where you live, to get unlikely-to-vote fellow citizens to the polls.
