"Vote as if your life depends on it - because it does!"
Those are the famous words of the late and venerable Justin Dart Jr.
, co-founder of the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) and 'Godfather of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)'. He said this long ago to underscore the importance of electing politicians, at all levels, that will be an ally to those less fortunate. Especially those whose lives literally depend on the outcome of an election.
All of our lives hinge on the result of this election in November.
The current administration and those that side with it seek to inflict as much pain, suffering, and even death on people they disagree with. That is not hyperbole, that is literally their political ideology
. From destroying decades of work building civil rights for Black people and LGBTQ+, to empowering and encouraging Nazis and white nationalists, to countless impeachable acts of outright fascism -- and lately the criminal and malicious negligence with the COVID-19 pandemic -- it is indisputable that we absolutely cannot
allow these monsters to stay in power any longer, at any level of government. To allow them to stay in power is to invite fascism, suffering, and death at unimaginable levels, both domestically and abroad.
There are previously unthinkable efforts taking place every day to undermine this election. This may very indeed well be the last chance we ever have to elect politicians that do not seek to harm a huge portion of the population for simply existing. If you do not vote this time, and for the right people, you might never have a real chance to again. Listed below are some resources to ensure your ballot gets counted.
