We Decide 2020

We must come out in full force this election, and we can do that by making a plan and sticking to it. After you write down your plan, share it on social media and encourage your friends to do the same.

Donald Trump and Mike Pence think they can continue attacking our freedoms and keep us away from the polls. We won’t let that happen. This election, WE decide our future.
