Every year, my family vacations in northern Michigan to enjoy the lakes, woods, and fresh air. When I look at climate safety maps, this vacation spot where we usually spend two weeks per year is one of the few places projected to be relatively climate-stable in the coming decades. My current home in southern California is currently in wildfire danger and is projected to struggle with water scarcity. My hometown in Maryland is in danger of flooding and super storms. I am a #FaithClimateVoter because I feel morally responsible to foster a stable climate to uphold the integrity of God's creation everywhere, not just a few select places like my family vacation spot. My #voteready plan to fill in my ballot that I will receive in the mail at home, then personally turn it in at my local polling location in-person, donning my mask.
Ms. Voting in this election matters to me for many reasons, but caring for our marine creation is high on the list. I want a world where oceans are thriving and sea levels are not rising, and one where generations to come can experience the wonder of being seaside. We have so little time to make a meaningful impact, and this election will be a turning point in that timeline. I want to protect the coasts I grew up on and have come to appreciate even more as the pandemic has worn on. I have confirmed my voter registration is valid, and have made my plan to vote in person on Election Day. #voteready #CreationJustice
There are many issues I am concerned with and one is access to clean drinkable water. Water is a human right and gift from God- we must prioritize equitable access to potable water. I am originally from Wisconsin and the state (along with many others) suffers with the lack of access to clean water. From leaded water in Milwaukee, primarily in BIPOC communities to polluted ground water from farming chemical runoff in rural Wisconsin- water has clearly not been treated as a priority. Water is life not only for humans but all of the creatures who crawl, fly, & swim on this planet! I have read the policy plan of the candidates and made my decision based on which candidate will best protect vulnerable communities and restore the Earth. I have made my plan to vote by verifying my new address with the DC Board of Elections and requesting my absentee ballot. Once I receive my ballot I will fill it out immediately and take it to my ballot drop off location. #Waterislife #voteready
