Selena introduced Michelle Obama at When We All Vote’s first-ever Culture of Democracy Summit.
“This work is incredibly important to me, especially when I think about the people who sacrificed so we can all exercise our right to vote. The people in elected positions impact all of us and make decisions on the issues that we care about, including our right to vote. This November, in our midterm elections, we will decide who serves in all 435 seats in the House of Representatives, 35 of 100 seats in the Senate, and countless elected officials at the local and state level. But we can’t ignore that a lot of people don’t vote in the midterm elections, and that’s why we’re here today – to change the culture around voting and increase participation in each and every election. None of our work at When We All Vote would be possible without our founder, former first lady Michelle Obama. She launched When We All Vote as a nonpartisan organization, because this work is bigger than one party, one election, or one moment. Our goal is to increase voter participation, especially among Black, brown, and young voters, and to change the culture around voting.”
I have added pictures of Selena speaking on stage to the gallery.
