With the most consequential election in modern history just weeks away, we are asking mothers to tell us what they are voting for this fall. Today, Miami, Florida-based Celia D. Luna, a photographer and mother to a 15-year-old daughter (Luna), explains why voting is absolutely vital in 2020.
“It’s so important for me to vote this year because enough is enough. Black people are still dying because of racism, immigrants are being harshly punished, women are still getting paid less than men, healthcare is a monopoly, all while our environmental issues are not being taken care of. My daughter is turning into a young woman and I don’t want her to experience any more discrimination because of her race, ethnicity, beliefs, gender, sexual orientation, etc. We have a long way to go but voting is the first step.”
Do you have a plan to vote this year? Head over to WhenWeAllVote.org to get started! Then tell a friend—or 5!—to do the same.
