Building a New American Dream, Together.

A New American Dream Includes Us All

The dream of our country should be one that each one of us can achieve. That’s the goal of this campaign. And that’s what you have the power to accomplish with your vote.

Why Voting Matters

In a world with many problems, it can feel like voting doesn’t matter. But your vote has the ability to determine not only which individuals will represent you and your community in the government, but it’s a signal to our government and the world, what you care about and what they need to pay attention to.

The Vote is the most powerful, non-violent tool we have in a democratic society.

U.S. Representative John Lewis

Voting is power. Do not give up your power.

Women, Immigrants, and BIPOC folks have long fought for and continue to fight for the right to be recognized in this country. The right to vote is the most essential of these. And many of our communities only earned this right recently.
