As Donald Trump’s corporate administration watches its approval ratings plummet, it’s a critical time for people to rise up and fight for democracy.
Recount activists have been hard at work making sure that the lessons of the recount lead to lasting reforms. Here’s a quick update on what we’re doing and how you can get involved:
Voting Justice conference in Milwaukee energizes electoral reform movement
This past weekend in Milwaukee, Jill joined voting justice champions in the Midwest for the second successful Voting Justice and Democratizing Elections conference. Movement leaders shared their expertise about election integrity efforts after #Recount2016, “new Jim Crow” voter suppression schemes, redistricting reform to fight gerrymandering, fair voting systems like Ranked Choice Voting, and much more.
You can watch many of the presentations from the Milwaukee Voting Justice and Democratizing Elections conference on Jill Stein’s Facebook page.
Democracy Convention in August - mark your calendar now
From the recent Voting Justice and Democratizing Elections conferences in Philly and Milwaukee, to the grassroots resistance movements springing up to defy the political establishment across the country, it’s clear that the 2016 election has galvanized a movement for real change and real democracy.
The Democracy Convention brings together all these movements - including the democracy, peace, environmental, racial justice movements and more - together to learn, connect and get inspired for the struggle for a better world.
Jill Stein and many other organizers will be in Minneapolis on August 2-6 for the third national Democracy Convention. Mark your calendar now so you don’t miss this opportunity to plug into the movement for an America and a world that works for all of us!
Thanks for all that you do to keep the movement for voting justice growing!
It’s in our hands,
The Recount 2016 team
