Vote Early Boston 2020
Dear Friends and Neighbors:
I hope this finds you well and staying safe.
In a 2013 Washington Post opinion piece, our beloved and infamous Congressman John Lewis said it best: The right to vote is the most powerful nonviolent tool we have in a democracy. I risked my life defending that right. Some died in the struggle. If we are ever to actualize the true meaning of equality, effective measures such as the Voting Rights Act are still a necessary requirement of democracy.
His powerful words remain true today now more than ever. As do the words of female suffragists who fought over the course of multiple generations for the right to become enfranchised.
To honor all those who spilled their own blood to pave the way so others could cast a ballot, PLEASE MAKE A PLAN TO VOTE! Our democracy depends on it.
State Representative, 11th Suffolk
