Right now, it seems like all the election action is focused on who is running for President. While that election is VERY important, there are several other important races that we need to pay attention to because the winners will have the power to make a huge difference in our everyday lives. Both political parties know that women of color represent a large and powerful group of voters, but for reasons we won’t discuss in this post, they don’t seem all that interested in courting our vote.
Please help WE CAN change that!
We want our voices to be heard loud and clear in every town hall meeting, campaign stop, and candidate platform. To do that, WE CAN invites you to join us in developing a set of questions for candidates.
Send your questions for anyone running for Mayor, State Legislature, Governorship, United States Congress, or President, to WE CAN by clicking the box below. WE CAN will compile your questions, sort and organize them, and prepare some tips on how to use your voice in 2020.
