Why Your Voice is Important
As a community member, nobody’s closer to the heart of the issues than you. Lawmakers who come from a place of privilege lack perspective—when the ones in power to make change have never experienced the things that need changing, nothing gets done. Your voice is essential because it provides a window into the side of your community that they haven’t seen; when you share your experience, you’re informing a very important worldview.
