With deadlines and polling locations shifting by the day, alongside massive voter suppression tactics from missing ballots and divestment from the postal service, we need all hands on deck to ensure every eligible voter has what they need to vote safely this November. We know after November 3rd, we’ll need new and strengthened relationships to confront whatever is ahead, together – join us.
