What About ‘November 7, 2012 … The Day After The Election?’
With all the election day hooplah, many of us might lose sight of our long term struggle and obligation to our community.
What happens on November 7th?
ACTION, that’s what.
What you do tomorrow, matters!
A couple of weeks ago I tuned into The League of Young Voters event and the most profound thing I heard came from a powerful activist, Rosa Clemente. The statement was a simple, thought-provoking call to action, “Voting is in 12 days, but what are you going to do on the 13th day?”
Well, election day is here. You went to the polls, you cast your vote, great! November 7, 2012 comes, now what will you do?
Veterans will still need jobs, students will still need financial assistance to go to college, what are you going to do to ensure that this can and will happen?
That change that we so desperately seek, the change we have so desperately longed for; it happens as a nation working together. What you do or don’t do tomorrow, matters. The work doesn’t stop at the polls; the work cannot stop today. The campaign for jobs, change, women’s rights, veterans, college students, immigrants and other social issues must go on.
Thoughts on this blog?
How can we keep up the momentum AFTER election day?
Sound off belw!
