You know what time it is! We know *so* many of you have already done your part and more (thank you!) Here’s a handy to-do list of last minute pro-democracy moves:
  1. Vote all the way down the ballot.
  2. Drop off your ballot or vote in person (find locations here!)
  3. Check in with your family and friends to make sure they have voted.
  4. Drive someone to a polling place if you can.
  5. Take deep breaths.

The team has been working tirelessly to ensure that you and everyone you know has everything you need to vote.

Pete Buttigieg: Trust
Our friend Pete wrote a New York Times bestseller! 

Trust is essential to the foundation of America’s democracy, asserts Pete Buttigieg, the former presidential candidate and South Bend mayor.

Yet, in a century warped by terrorism, financial collapse, Trumpist populism, systemic racism, and now a global pandemic, trust has been squandered, sacrificed, abused, stolen, or never properly built in the first place.
