Congratulations! Against all odds and because of our work and the collective power of our generation, we were heard!
The pundits are talking about the winners and losers. We think that’s a stupid f*cking idea. Let’s talk about this: Last night, we proved that we are engaged, we vote, and that we are a political force that cannot be ignored.
You see, we had a plan. The work we’ve done over the past year wasn’t just to elect someone, it was to change the direction of our country and impact the future of our communities.
We know that democracy isn’t something that just happens, no magic and butterflies. So today, November 7th, 2012, we’re marking our calendars as the first day of Rock The Vote’s We Will Challenge.
Our challenge is simple: until the next election, #WeWill engage deeply. #WeWill point out half-truths and hypocrisy. #WeWill get smart on the issues and #WeWill push elected leaders – and each other – to make the promises of the campaigns a reality. We have just begun.
If you believe in the power of our generation, then join us in the real work ahead.
to join the #wewill challenge.
Together, #WeWill push our elected leaders, each other, and the country to be better. Today marks the first day of the #WeWill Challenge and our work ahead.
Congratulations President Obama – you’ll be hearing from us soon.
Heather, Chrissy, Amanda, Caitlin, David, Kelly, Catherine, Phaedra, Jaynie, Adam, Chris, Aliya, Rynnel, Michelle and everyone at Rock the Vote
