While it speaks to a crucial election year where our votes are an explicit argument against white supremacy, anti-blackness, and the survival of the most marginalized people not only in the United States, but also globally, we know that voting is not the only tool we wield for our survival. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to BuildingPowerSteering@umich.edu. We look forward to spending this day with you all!
