Move For What Matters Campaign - Fall 2020
Join our Move for What Matters campaign. We invite students, faculty, staff and administrators to commitment to an issue, cause or topic that matters to you. You select your movement (running, yoga, drawing, meditating, etc.). Move for What Matters is about connecting values to action, like voting. Share what you move for through Instagram @LoyolaVotes and use the hashtag #MoveForWhatMatters.
Check out what some members of our community are moving for!
To exercise your right to vote, you must first be registered. Registration is made easy through LoyolaVotes.
The best voting is informed voting. Voting is a powerful action that carries great responsibility. It is important to be informed about the candidates and their platforms before casting your ballot.
Your voice matters! For our democracy to work at its best, we need to ensure each member of our community has access to vote. Structural and systemic barriers exist, creating obstacles for voter registration and participation. We are called to stand strong in our commitment to electoral access and secure voting rights for all.
Each member of our community is responsible for upholding a healthy democracy. As members of the Loyola community, we are called on to create and sustain a civically engaged community. Leadership demands equal and unabridged access to the ballot. Lead by example - participate in each election, from school board to presidency.
