STOM (Shomrei Teens of Montclair) kids writing non-partisan get-out-the-vote letters as part of the Vote Forward Project.
Vote Forward’s mission is to empower grassroots volunteers to help register voters from under-represented demographics and encourage them to vote. We build tools to enable Americans, wherever they may be, to encourage fellow citizens to participate in our democracy.
Our STOM teens engaged in the democratic process…here’s what they wrote to Americans across the country:
“One of the most important things we get as Americans is the right to choose our leaders. It is also important because, especially now, we are reliant on our leaders to keep us safe and healthy. So it is important that you choose someone that will keep you and your community safe.”
“We are fortunate to have a democracy so take advantage of that. Get out to vote and participate in your country’s future!”
“We are lucky enough to be able to choose our leader and we should embrace that. You need to vote so that you have an impact on what happens with our country.”
“Voting is a sacred right we have in America. I am encouraging you to vote because your vote is important.”
