Voting Day Message: Statement from director
Voting is one small part of what is necessary for all of us to do, I don’t need to say that to those who are reading this newsletter. Getting your membership and constituents to vote is the other part of what is necessary for us to all do. I don’t need to say that to you all either because this is what most of you all have been up to for days, weeks, months or maybe even years! Many of your organizations have been prioritizing time on the phones and in streets and it is greatly appreciated.
I want to acknowledge and thank all of those folks who have been helping take us through scenario planning for post election. This is a very grounding process to keep all the pieces of the state systems and our strategies into relationship with one another. We can’t have the pre-election and post-election efforts be in isolation from each-other, which means we can’t be in isolation from one another no matter our role. We need to know when and where we show up and what our position is going to be on this turf of North America. Our vote determines the conditions we will struggle in. And yes, we will experience a distinct difference with the conditions under a Biden/Harris victory.
