Voting 101 ~ California

I know that we are all in different places, but I wanted to share this as an education the process to vote. This one is for ACLU NorCal, but please check your local ACLU for voting rights information in your area.

Click here to read the information from my local ACLU. I thought this could serve as a model to look for in your state.

If you need help finding your voting rights in your county and state, please do not hesitate to reach out for help. It’s your right to vote, and it’s all of our responsibilities to get out and cast our votes, especially in the primary.

This page will be under construction, since I want to add more voting resources.

My Path to Lead The Way ~ #ACLU

Last year I started getting active with my local ACLU chapter. I became a member, attended my first virtual conference, and stepped up to lead my chapter in my county.

Looking forward and to the current time, while sitting at the chair position for my county, I attended our 2022 Action Conference, and I stepped up to be a Lobby Captain. It was so uplifting and showed me some things about myself that I had no idea existed.

Here is what I learned in these past two years of volunteering:

  1. I am a pretty strong leader. I am able to delegate and listen. I do not always have to be in the spotlight.
  2. There is such a thing as a beautiful divide among people. I love that we are all different and unique in our own ways. Our differences are not ugly or negative. They are beautiful when they work together on a common goal.
  3. I know that this is the right career path for me, and I am on track to live the rest of my life happy when I find a career within this specialization of career fields.
  4. A voice is powerful, and stories have meaning to our elected staff and legislators.

I am sure as time goes on that this list will grow with knowledge and experience gained through helping my community, but after two weeks of working with amazing people, I had to share these feelings of success with you.
