Below is a very important report which I ask you to please share on your social media accounts.
According to reports, America’s former first lady is gearing up to stop the Trump agenda.
Michelle Obama and a host of her celebrity pals are launching a new voter registration initiative this summer.
The new nonprofit, “When We All Vote,” was announced last week. Obama and her team will hold events, rallies and training sessions for volunteers ahead of the November election to get more voters registered.
The organization won’t focus solely on ramping up Democratic support, but rather will act as a nonpartisan organization to register those of all parties and beliefs.
USA TODAY REPORTS:
“Voting is the only way to ensure that our values and priorities are represented in the halls of power,” Michelle Obama said in a statement “And it’s not enough to just vote for president every four years. We all have to vote in every single election: for mayor, governor, school board, state legislature and Congress. The leaders we elect to these offices help determine just about every aspect of our lives and our democracy.”
Obama will be joined by celebrities, including “Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, actor Tom Hanks, Houston Rockets player Chris Paul and singers Faith Hill, Tim McGraw and Janelle Monae, Politico reported.
The organization, in a news release, notes that voter registration rates and votes cast in midterm elections are astonishingly low.
“These numbers and the reasons behind them should alarm every American,” the organization says. “No one organization can dramatically change those numbers alone. But every citizen can be part of the solution—and that’s why When We All Vote is calling on Americans to take responsibility and start a conversation by asking friends, family, and those in their own communities to register.”
