In 2020 #WeAre using the arts and artists to connect communities to the power of their Voice, and collective Vote. We are partnering with local charities in states like Florida and Michigan to hold voter Registration/Education events. It’s important for us all to use our vote for the betterment of our communities. Join us by registering below. And if you are already registered to vote, we’re asking each other to pledge to use your vote, get out to the polls, and encourage our friends and family to do the same!
#WeAreTheVote is about more than registering voters, it’s about engaging them in the power that collective advocacy provides. WeAre building connections between organizations in communities that will create a lasting impact beyond the 2020 election. #WeAreTheVote2020 starts in Florida and Michigan.

WHERE WE ARE
July through November, WeAre is co-curating monthly voter engagement events in Genesee County (Flint, MI) and Wayne County (Detroit, MI). We are partnering with local nonprofits, beginning with the Flint Water Festival on July 4th and launching out #OneVoiceDetroit Digital campaign. Each initiative, deployed monthly, is built to significantly increase the number of citizens exercising their right to vote on November 3rd 2020.
We’ve created a digital campaign called, #OneVoiceDetroit. Recruiting artists in the Detroit Metro area to share/create/curate content representing the challenges happening in their neighborhoods in order to create a personalized ‘call to action’, sending people to the platform to register and pledge to vote! DM us if you’re like to participate!

#WEARE IN THE CLASSROOM
The #WeArePracticum is a discussion lead by #WeAre Ambassadors on Arts & Activism, or Activism & Civic Duty. These are held in scholastic settings (high schools and universities) to engage young people in answering their own questions about the world they see around them. At each, we hope to ignite attendees into action in their communities with thoughts and tools. These will be a hybrid virtual/in-person, should social distancing protocols allow.
