I recently learned about Mind Our Democracy, a call to action for people of all political views from leaders in the mindfulness and psychology community including Tara Brach, Jack Kornfield, Sharon Salzberg, Rick Hanson, Kristin Neff, Dan Harris, and Dan Siegel, just to name a few.
I want to share the details with you because voting right now is crucial.
Why Is This So Important Right Now?
Voting in the upcoming elections on November 8, 2022 is hugely important because:
~U.S. Senate races are being held in one third of all states
~All 435 members of the House of Representatives are up for reelection
~Half of the country’s governors, secretaries of state, and attorneys general are up for election
~Critical state legislative and local offices to vote on in nearly every state
How You Can Support Democracy?
~Forward this information to everyone you know! Every ballot cast is an act of service for and in support of our communities. Every vote matters.
~Volunteer your time as a poll worker. Learn more at Power the Polls or We the Action.
