Election season is upon us, and the tumultuousness of this year alone has greatly emphasized the importance of engaging in our political process. The challenges wrought by the coronavirus pandemic and elevated social unrest have laid bare the current state of our major institutions – both locally and nationally – and whether they have proven inadequate or capable of weathering the storm.

Consequently, these challenges are also calling all U.S. citizens into action in determining which representatives can address our greatest concerns – whether they be healthcare, education, criminal justice reform, social service programs, support for marginalized communities, defense, the economy, support for small businesses, etc. – and casting our vote to put them in position to do so.

Whether you’re voting for the first time – or simply for the first time amidst a pandemic – Stonewall Democrats of WNY and Buffalo Rising put together a little Voting 101 with some informational resources and important dates to keep an eye on.

I moved to Buffalo to attend Canisius College in 2007 and began writing for Buffalo Rising as a journalism intern in 2010. Working with Newell and meeting numerous entrepreneurs, activists and everyday folks who were working to make their city better made a huge impact on my decision to stay here. After witnessing all the positive development and grassroots initiatives happening in neighborhoods throughout the city, I was inspired to pursue a term of service in AmeriCorps and a career in Buffalo's non-profit sector. I currently work in the housing department at the Lt. Col. Matt Urban Human Services Center of WNY and am excited to be a part of their ongoing efforts to revitalize the Broadway Fillmore neighborhood. I also volunteer as the project coordinator for Artfarms Buffalo. I continue to write for Buffalo Rising because I love having the opportunity to stay connected to those working toward positive changes for the Queen City.
