Happy New Year!
A New Year message from Jen Hofmann
2020 is an exciting year. In November, our nation gets to do more than elect a president.
After years of advocacy, we will find our whether our efforts to bolster basic democratic principles have worked. For example, will all people have access to the polls when it comes time to vote? Or will communities persist in silencing their most vulnerable voters – students, the working poor, disabled people? The integrity of our nation has been weakened by greed, but each of us can do something. Vote, yes. And also work so that others can vote.
On this New Year’s Day, we at Americans of Conscience Checklist are committed to actions our country needs today and tomorrow, as well as eleven months from now. Many people and communities are hurt by the current administration. AoCC shares how to support our neighbors and further to democracy and equality today.
