Voting Resources from YWCA Columbus
For those of us with access to the privilege of voting, we need to be participating in elections at all levels to ensure we elect officials who denounce structural racism and work to change oppressive institutions. This includes elections at the local level because they have the biggest influence in reforming police departments. As we approach the election in November, it is incredibly important to champion others to vote early and combat voter suppression.
Our approach to Voter Education: Y W C A
- (Y) Yes, I'm registered!
- (W) What's on my ballot?
- (C) Crafting my plan to vote
- (A) Amplify my impact!
