An Act of Love: How We Can Get Through This Together
In times of great need our instincts tell us to come together, to share the burden and to work side-by-side to make it better. The act of solidarity in the time of coronavirus -- social distancing -- feels at odds with our best intentions. But please know we are doing what’s right for our first responders, healthcare workers, and those who are most at-risk.
It is so much more than an ounce of prevention, it is an act of love.
While we transition into a new normal, please know we are in this together. Vote Run Lead is ramping up our digital connectedness to keep our network strong, to keep women candidates competitive, and to bring you information about issues that affect our community.
