“Your vote doesn’t count.” That’s a statement you may hear from others leading up to the 2020 election on November 3, or perhaps you have felt that way yourself.
Your vote does count, very much. Because if you don’t vote, another person’s vote will be amplified. Can you vote? Other than a few exceptions, the answer to that question is yes. Will you vote? That’s a different question, and the answer is completely up to you. I hope (and strongly encourage) that you will make the effort to cast your ballot while considering: “What will these candidates do to end hunger, alleviate poverty and create opportunity in the U.S. and worldwide?” Does that resonate? If so, we’d like to get to know you better: join Rise Against Hunger’s movement and become a Hunger Champion to work toward ending hunger by Empowering Communities, Nourishing Lives and Responding to Emergencies.
This year, Rise Against Hunger has taken the Vote to End Hunger Pledge, which means we’re committed to equipping our networks, advocates, and champions with the tools necessary to bring their passion to the polls to help end hunger. And it starts right here: the first step is to make sure you are registered to vote!
At Rise Against Hunger, we want to provide a road map for helping get that done. Below are resources.
