Pushing for Change & #VoteToEndPoverty

Today I got the chance to participate in a local event put on by the Homeless Coalition of Windsor and Essex County. Along with some other incredibly inspiring speakers, I got to encourage a crowd of over 100 people to get out and vote. And it. was. AMAZING.

Joe Roberts spoke about his upcoming Push For Change alongside an incredibly inspiring true life story of perseverance and success. His message was simple: we are all full of possibility. With motivation, a strong support system and a personal sense of DO SOMETHING, we can do anything. Everyone is worthy of fulfillment. Go read his story, and about his Push For Change.

I was able to talk about my passion: voting. I did a piece on voter apathy, which is obviously much better in person, because commentary a la my charming self is pretty awesome…but in any case, I’ve had a request to put the powerpoint slides up here for others. I’m happy to oblige!
