Please join #SD30 @nysenbenjamin's Millennial Task Force on Tuesday September 26th and/or Saturday September 30th as we get out the vote about this year's Tuesday November 7th #NYC General Election. In #NewYorkCity, less than 14% of eligible voters vote in mayoral elections. There is too much at stake: #AffordableHousing; #Rikers (or #MassIncarceration); #EndChildPoverty; #EndHomelessness; Quality, Affordable #Education for all; Quality of life issues; supporting and protecting #DREAMers and other immigrants; ending #ATaleofTwoCities; #Jobs; supporting and protecting our #LGBTQ brothers and sisters; #EconomicJustice; etc. to sit out this or any election. The last day to register to vote in the General Election is Friday, October 13th.
If you are a Millennial living in NYC but have yet to register to vote in NYC, get registered. If you have moved and never completed a new voter registration form, complete a form and update your registration. If you are eligible to vote and have never registered, get registered. Your vote is your voice on the issues listed above. Speak up, so that change can manifest. Speak up, so that elected officials, government and other leaders have the political will to do the right thing! While others who do not believe in freedom, justice and equality for all are speaking, your voice is needed in that conversation to help #NYC gain the political courage to be and do better by all its residents, especially its most vulnerable.
Rev. #MLKJr. said: In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends. This is true, as I remember the silence of those that failed to vote in the 2016 Presidential Election.
Together, #YesWeCan #CreateAnotherAmerica and NYC!
