Reclaiming Your Voice: Advocacy, Elections and Our Laws with Eshe Pickett

In the month of June we are reclaiming our voices. For this week’s #WorkYourPlan Wednesday I’m taking a step towards one of my action items – to be more informed about local government.

We’re going to learn why local elections matter and how we become informed voters from my friend, Eshe Pickett, a community activist & an engineer. We will address advocacy, elections and our laws.

In this episode we discuss…

  • Why local elections matter and how we become informed voters
  • How the different elected offices impact our daily life
  • Why we need to start engaging our children early
  • Other ways besides voting to be involved in the political process
  • How do the different branches of government affect economic and racial inequality?
  • Resources to help us navigate the system

Quotes

“Politicians pay attention to people who can vote them out of office.” – Eshe Pickett

“There’s always got to be some piece of you that’s connected to the greater good and when you have no connection and all you’re seeing is the negative that’s when you have hopelessness. I maintain hope because I’m involved.” – Eshe Pickett
