If someone would have told us in March as social distancing measures and mandated shutdowns were enacted that we would start the fall still working and learning virtually, we would have never have ever imagined it. After a summer of protests in response to multiple instances of police brutality, widespread attention to long-standing issues of structural racism, a divided nation, hurricanes, and wildfires, we are in a new “normal” as many of us return to campus and/or children return to school. To be honest, it has been an exhausting summer dealing with these issues while also preparing for the upcoming (and critical) election. Yet, we cannot be distracted from the importance of getting people out to vote as an important step to initiate the type of social change our country desperately needs. This week’s e-Blast includes resources and opportunities to become involved in voter mobilization efforts.
