Along with HeadCount, Swing From Home and Drag Out The Vote, GLAAD is partnering with Claim Our Space Now, a non-profit dedicated to emboldening urgent action to save Black lives through a pop-up series and digital campaigns. The ongoing pop-up series features people from across the country mobilizing the LGBTQ and BIPOC communities to get them to fill out the census and vote.
For National Voter Registration Day, Claim Our Space Now is launching a social media campaign via the hastags #ClaimTheVote and #ClaimItLoud where participants can share their motivations for voting in the upcoming 2020 election. Voting in the national and your local elections is one of many ways to have your voice heard and represented in a democracy and is a tool for marginalized groups such as Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color as well as LGBTQ+ individuals to care for and drive progress in their communities. You can follow this link to register to vote and use this link to verify your registration.
Claim Our Space Now is expanding nationally with some upcoming ones to include GA, NC, PA, TX and more! Follow @claimourspacenow to learn about a pop-up in your state or email email@example.com to lead a pop-up in your area.
