They are a nation without sense, there is no discernment in them.
If only they were wise and would understand this and discern what their end will be! Deuteronomy 32:28-29 NIV

Why “Turn Out Tuesday?”

Our democracy is under siege like at no time in recent history. The wealthy are spending huge numbers of dollars to sway elections, often anonymously, through front organizations and superpacs. Businesses funnel money to “issue” pacs to influence our votes. All the while our Supreme Court continues to make rulings that have nothing to do with justice, but everything to do with maintaining the privileged class in America. Now add to this a barrage of voter suppression laws sweeping across the country and it is easy to imagine our hard won rights being taken away even as we watch. This is our time for action.

As much as money can influence an election, the only real power to elect is the VOTE.

Fight Voter Suppression
Once again Americans of color are finding new challenges to exercise our right to vote, only this time they are also looking to exclude elderly voters, hispanics and youth of all colors. We must fight this effort with all of our resources. You are encouraged to raise money to assist those in your community that are facing these new challenges, and to support organizations that are on the front line in the legal battles to stop the proliferation of new voting restrictions.

Raise money to assist those who need new forms of ID to vote and donate to ACLU or NAACP LDF.
