First they launched a petition that helped Candy Crowley land her gig as female moderator of the second presidential debate.
Now these three New Jersey teens are giving American women a pep talk for the election.
Emma Axelrod, Sammi Siegel and Elena Tsemberis want you to vote this November 6! Use this guide to make sure you have what you need at the polls!
In our latest pep talk, Emily tells the story of finding her own voice to speak up for her family.
As the daughter of two moms, Emily grew up in Massachusetts. She was 14 when the state’s marriage debate began, putting Emily’s family at the receiving end of nasty political rhetoric.
One radio station took it too far, and Emily called in to respond to a conversation about the children of LGBT parents. That day, Emily realized the importance of her voice and her experiences.
This Tuesday, November 6, Emily will use her voice and vote. Will you join her?
What will you use your voice to vote for? Record your own video and share it with us today!
On Tuesday, Nov. 6, you have some serious choices to make – and from the ballot box to your closet, we’re with you all the way.
That’s why we’re asking you to show off your personal, patriotic style by sending us a picture of the shoes you’ll wear to the polls.
To submit your shoes, just e-mail your first name, state, age, and your pic to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be sure to tell us why you picked these shoes: sneakers for a workout, heels for the office, black flats for a restaurant job, or perhaps some bunny slippers or combat boots for folks filling out an absentee ballot.
We’ll post our favorites here and on Twitter (@itsmyvote, #OMGshoes) so check back between now and Election Day to see who wears what to the polls.
