#332 / Handwritten
Bria East, pictured above, is an educator in Philadelphia. According to The New York Times, she was inspired to vote after hearing from a volunteer with the group Vote Forward.
Vote Forward is attempting to make democracy work. As its website notes, "Writing letters to voters is one of the most effective ways to help increase election turnout. And you can do it right from home!"
I frequently urge those who might be reading these blog postings to realize that there is a great deal of merit in "Talking With Strangers." I never tire of suggesting that we are "all in this together," and that we should act as though we understand that.
Sending a handwritten letter to someone we don't know, personally, but whom we do know is a person with whom we are "in this together," is certainly a great way to follow up on my blog-posted advisories. One of my blog-reading friends alerted me to the article in The Times. Vote Forward is now on my horizon line.
Please note that this handwritten approach to political and social action is not available in the "Metaverse" that I mentioned in my blog posting yesterday. Let's take off our goggles, and go make some new friends in the real world.
Write them a letter.
