Here’s an amazing resource from Karla West Basta. Do you think that more people — particularly poor people and people of color — should vote? Do you also think that elections are just the beginning — not the end of political organizing? Do you also want to know that your dollars are going to effective organizations that organize all year round to build community power and take on fights for economic and racial justice at the local and state level?
Check out Movement2016.org. There are so many options to donate in swing states to vetted organizations that are going to keep fighting past November. They’ll use your money to get out the vote AND build lasting organizations. We can’t trust politicians to make change, we have to build movements to force them to make change!
