We marched in 2017. It’s 2018 and we’re still marching, and we’ll be marching again in 2019.
This year is a big one on the political scene, (reflected in The March’s theme; Power To The Polls), so I’ll give you the call to action upfront. Run for office.
Do it. Be the voice of reason and the voice of change. Run locally, run federally; and when you hit the ballot, vote for yourself.
This is the avenue for upward mobility, betterment on a personal, societal and global level. If you’ve ever had even the slightest inkling of desire to run for office, check out these resources built specifically to help you out:
Run For Something

Take advantage of these organizations and programs, rise up, and in the meantime, remember that the right to representation is why we march.
