About VOICE YOUR VOTE
VYV was founded on the fundamental belief that the political process is designed to work for the people.
This means policies and laws cannot exist outside of the people they are designed to serve. VYV combines arts, culture, and music for one purpose--to inspire black and brown youth to amplify their voices through their votes.
WHY YOUR VOTE MATTERS
Your vote is your voice.
Reforms and revolutions, just like politics, do not happen without people. Political systems are made up of people, and without participation in those systems, the needs of people will be ignored.
Voting is one of the most important ways to exercise your citizenship and effect change.
The men and women who draft and enforce laws and policies work for you, so why not have a say in who holds that power?
