Focusing on democracy, voting, and civil discourse

Most of us are proud to live in a democracy, where we have a say in what happens to our society. But where did that come from? And how do we safeguard it during these unprecedented times of division?

The short answer: be informed and vote. That's our focus this month with the impending election. Be sure to read our blog, and check out our extensive list of voting resources.

We do not endorse any political parties or candidates. We just believe it's every adult's responsibility to cast a vote, and to take the time to understand the issues and people running for our government. This is a huge way we can participate in democracy and shape our future.

Want to make a difference? Work to ensure your friends, family, and neighbors show up this year!

Our Blog: Democracy and Getting Out The Vote
