At a time of unprecedented voter suppression, the work of Vote From Home 2020 is more essential than ever. Our new “Suppress This” campaign helps them get ballots into the hands of disenfranchised voters. You can help, too.
For voters of color, many of whom often face voter suppression in their own communities, such as biased voter-ID legislation and limited polling sites, many of whom often have to wait in line for hours at the polls, the pandemic adds a new obstacle this November. With Black and brown Americans 3x more likely to get coronavirus and 2x more likely to die from it, Vote From Home 2020 asserts that no one should have to risk their life to cast their ballot.
“Suppress This” positions mail-in voting as the way for at-risk Black and brown voters to give the middle finger to those in power who would benefit from their absence at the polls. The creative centers striking portraits of Black and brown Americans shot by POC photographers Darius Riley and Andrea Granera, while highlighting the mail-in ballot as the solve /for voting challenges from both systematic suppression and COVID-19.
To further support the mission of empowering voters and mitigating the effects of suppression and COVID-19 on turnout, additional creative calls citizens to help ‘fund a fair election’ by donating to get absentee ballot applications in the hands of at-risk voters. A $25 donation to Vote From Home 2020 equals 20 absentee ballots application packages mailed. That’s where you come in!
Also, a big thanks to Adweek for helping to spread the word.
