The three-hour event and 11-day on-the-ground mobilization aims to create the biggest voter turnout possible among young people and communities of color in the weeks leading up to the general election on Nov. 3.
The virtual rally will focus on the four essential pillars of voting (why, how, when and where to vote), and also discuss how to safely vote in person if you choose to do so. Early vote events in Atlanta, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Milwaukee, Philadelphia, and Phoenix will also be highlighted, while organizations and influencers will take to social media to urge their fans to participate.
Bieber, Lovato, Sherry Cola, Candice Dupree, Renee Montgomery, Common, Mark Ruffalo and and the cast of the award-winning documentary Us Kids Emma González, David Hogg, Jaclyn Corin, Samantha Fuentes and Alex King will also make appearances.
“To vote is to harness your power, and we have to use the power that’s given to us,” activist González said in a press statement. “Don’t just vote for yourself, vote for every person; for every person whose basic rights are at risk, for every person who can’t vote because they are undocumented or incarcerated, for every person who is affected by the system and for every person who fought with everything they had just to give us the right to vote. Vote because you can. Vote because we haven’t always been able to.”
“Vote With Us” will stream on Vote Early Day (Oct. 24) at 3 p.m. ET/12 p.m. PT on www.votewith.us and simulcast across YouTube and coalition partner social media channels. Coalition partners include All in For Voting, Black Voters Matter, Future Coalition, The Early Vote, Headcount, March On, Us Kids Film, Vote Early Day, We Stand United and more.Credit: Original article published here.
