In our prior post, we shared the story of a collegiate employee who, as a deaf African-American woman understands what it is like to be a part of a minority group. Her unique position in life and her hard work earned her the position of chief diversity officer at Gallaudet University, her Alma mater. This has all been placed at risk after the woman decided to honor the right to vote that this country was founded on.
The right to vote is something that our country has valued from the beginning. When even the idea of America was just beginning to form, it was about freedom and democracy. It was about the ability to have the right as a group of citizens to vote not only on those who will run their country, but on the decisions that could significantly alter the way that the country is run.
