I feel like it’s very important to vote. If you don’t vote it’s like you don’t care how you live. It’s a very important year because of the pandemic and all the racial stuff that’s been going on. I feel like it’s very important to vote because we have the right. As women, as black people, we didn’t always have the right. – Andrea Henderson
I don’t know a lot about politics, but what I’ve seen is – we just need a change. And it’s not about making America great again. It’s just about helping each other. America is already great. We’re all human and we have to help each other. – Michaela Williams
