March 25, 2021

The right to vote is the essential foundation of democracy.

They don’t want our ‘Souls at the Polls’ line

March 18, 2021

The Souls to the Polls movement encourages African American church attendees to get out and vote. The churches that promote this movement cannot, because of their 501-c-3 status, endorse candidates.

For a stronger America, we must hold extremism accountable

February 17, 2021

Donald Trump’s defenders are shameless. And that makes them dangerous. It has only been a month since a mob enraged by Trump’s lies about the election being stolen attacked the U.S. Capitol to stop Congress from confirming Joe Biden’s victory. The terrorists killed one police officer and injured more than 100, leaving some with head […]

“There are some politicians that are very concerned about the historic turnout that we saw in the 2020 election and are determined to put barriers in front of the ballot box to try and give themselves a job security play.
