When I was a law student at Howard University, I never imagined that one day I'd return to campus as the DNC's Director of Civic Engagement and Voter Protection. And I definitely would not have guessed I would be standing alongside our country's first woman and first Black vice president either.
But that's exactly what happened back in July, when Vice President Harris announced the DNC's historic investment in voter education, protection, registration, and technology ahead of next year's midterm elections.
Right now, my team is working around the clock to assemble the DNC's largest-ever voter protection program -- and with Republicans leading a no-holds-barred campaign attacking the right to vote nationwide, it couldn't come at a more important time.
The small-dollar donations made by grassroots supporters on this team make our work possible. So, if you can, will you consider making a $7 donation to the DNC today?
The goal of my department at the DNC is decidedly simple: To ensure all eligible voters can cast a ballot -- and have that ballot counted. Already this year, more than 400 anti-voter bills have been introduced nationwide. So, suffice it to say we've been busy.
Republicans have already enacted restrictive voting laws in key battleground states like Texas, Georgia, and Florida -- all in a grand scheme to prevent communities of color, young folks, people with disabilities, and anyone who stands in their way from having their vote counted. Because the GOP knows that when more folks vote, Democrats win.
I came to work at the DNC because I believe the right to vote is our most sacred, fundamental right -- and we must do everything in our power to protect it. But the truth is, our work can only continue with the backing of supporters like you.
Make a $7 donation to the DNC to help provide Democrats with the tools we need to fight Republican-sponsored voter suppression and win elections nationwide.
