Calling All Artists and Activists – Help #ProtectOurVote

While COVID-19 cases continue to rise in states across the country, too many states lack the resources to ensure safe and accessible voting this fall. The disastrous primary elections in Wisconsin and Georgia demonstrate the urgent need for Congress to act now to #ProtectOurVote.

That's why the Declaration for American Democracy is calling on activists, artists, and creators across the country to make your voice heard by participating in a "Democracy Open Mic."

Participation can take many forms. Some examples:

Record a video: Get your message to millions of people across the country.

Take a Selfie with a sign: Post it on your Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram! Make sure to tag #DemocracyOpenMic, #ProtectOurVote, and @DFADCoalition in your tweet/post!

Compose a poem: Poems have a profound effect – let's use it to protect our democracy!

Design a graphic: Fire up that Canva or Adobe Illustrator and show us what you've got!

Draw or paint a picture: Get your paint brushes, your pencils, your charcoals, and draw a pro-democracy picture to share with the world on social media.

Check out more ideas at https://declarationforamericandemocracy.org/openmic. Post your creation on social media by August 1 using the hashtags #DemocracyOpenMic and #ProtectOurVote, and tag @DFADCoalition. Together, we can win the funding and reforms to ensure that no person will have to choose between their health and their vote.
