SSSP Voting and Voter Participation Statement

We are writing both to remind and to urge you to vote in the upcoming election. As a social justice organization we have a responsibility, both as an organization and as individuals, to do what we can to achieve a more just society for everyone -- and participation, and encouraging participation, in a presidential and congressional election is one critical way to work toward this goal. As a non-profit organization we cannot and will not advise you on how to vote, but we can and do encourage you not only to vote, but to work with others, either on your campus or where you live, in voter registration, poll work, and get-out-the-vote activities, including via absentee ballots (see for absentee ballot deadlines by state). If you are a professor, you can urge your students to vote and assign voting-related activities, including discussions about the issues confronting our country. All of this can be, and should be, done in a non-partisan way.
