We can’t have Democracy without Voter Participation.
Second in a Series
Democrats – Unenrolled – Republicans
We are the voters, all of us. We are Americans who value self-determination.
We are Americans who thrive on freedom. Black Americans and women fought for and won the right to vote. Americans supported the efforts in the world wars to protect democracy.
The 2024 presidential election is November 5th, less than ten months away. Now we are called on to protect our democracy once again. In addition to our own vote, we can encourage others to vote. Now is the time.
Here are several organizations that emphasize the importance of democracy over MAGA extremism and provide opportunities for getting involved:
Indivisible focuses on winning back the 18 Republican “UNREPRESENTATIVES” that won congressional seats in districts Biden also won in 2020. They encourage postcarding. It works!
*The Lincoln Project creates ads that display the dangers of MAGA extremism and runs these ads in battleground states. This helped Biden win in 2020. Donations are needed!
*The Democratic Party site focuses on Biden’s presidential campaign and the House and Senate campaigns. Click on “Take Action” and check it out.
*Your local Democratic City or Town Committee.
*Donate directly to campaigns and candidates you support.
MAGA extremism is not some abstract, vague idea. It is real. The Republican front-runner, if elected to office, says he would “terminate” parts of the U.S. Constitution and use our government to take revenge on his political enemies.
MAGA extremism is about stripping what’s left of our reproductive rights, banning more books, and warning the Supreme Court that if his name is taken off any Republican primary ballots, “chaos and bedlam” will follow.
The next piece in this series will share Biden’s accomplishments during his first term.
Please share the names and contact information of organizations where you volunteer under the comments below, and I will share them in future blogs.
