Vote Baby Vote! Get Out The Vote From Harlem To Hollywood

The right to vote lies at the heart of our nation’s founding principles – it is the bedrock of our democracy from the hills of Harlem to the hills of Hollywood. Every citizen that can vote should have the opportunity to exercise their civic right, including those living with behavioral health conditions. This year, community mental health and addiction treatment centers have the unique opportunity to engage everyone in their centers, including clients, in nonpartisan voter registration and education.

Here’s a video from Deee-Lite – Vote Baby Vote! – MTV Rock The Vote in 1992:

In 2020, elected officials across state and federal ballots will be asking for your vote. They will be asking their fellow citizens to elect them to the office to make the needed changes in our communities and our country. It is critical that you and your clients’ needs are understood and voices are heard in politics and at the ballot box.

Be an impetus for change in our behavioral health care system by advocating for the civic right to vote. Our new Get Out the Vote 2020 Toolkit will help your organization create, launch and sustain a successful voter registration and voter education program for the 2020 General Election Cycle.
