This summer we have a unique and valuable opportunity. This summer we will be called to participate in our democracy and in the fall elect leaders who represent and will be champions of the values that we hold dear. When we encourage broader engagement with the electoral process we ensure that more voices are heard in political decision-making. During campaign season there will be many opportunities to hear from candidates (while they are knocking on doors, speaking at forums and debates, and making phone calls).
