Unleashing the Power of Poor and Low-Income Americans
Did You Know?
In the 2016 presidential election, there were 138 million voters out of 225 million eligible voters. 29 million of these voters were poor or low-income and there were an additional 34 million poor or low-income people who were eligible, but who did not vote.
The Poor People’s Campaign has consistently described its work as “registering people for a movement that votes.” We know that the votes of poor and low-income Americans can make a difference in our elections.
Let’s Celebrate the Vote!
The 2020 election was critical in defining the state of democracy in this country and will have lasting impacts on the freedom and spirit of the nation.
We have work to do, but we also deserve to celebrate the power we witnessed this election season from poor and low-income people!
