Get Educated So You Can #VoteLocal
Here is a series of simple but powerful actions you can take to get educated about your local elections. Because no one has a more immediate effect on the welfare of children in your community than your local and state officials.
Want others to #VoteLocal? The key is social pressure. Tell your friends, family, colleagues and followers that you are planning to vote. Or maybe you already voted. Pick one and share now.
That’s right. When it comes to fighting for equity and justice for children in your community, nothing matters more than who holds all those jobs at the local level, many of which are on the ballot.
Over on Education Post’s Facebook page we broadcasted live every day during the week of action at 1pm ET. Brightbeam’s own Lisa Hollenbach spoke with a range of experts and activists about why it is so important to #VoteLocal. You can watch any of those conversations below.
