Our #MondayMotivation is Maria, a new U.S. citizen and registered voter. 🇺🇸 Congratulations, Maria! We’ll see you at the polls 🗳 Read her story ⬇ . “I was born in San Pedro Sula, Honduras to a Honduran mother and a Nicaraguan father. My dad moved to New York City when I was very little, while my mom and I stayed in Honduras. It wasn't until 2011, after my parents had separated that my mom, brother, and I moved to Washington, DC...Although at first, I yearned to move back to San Pedro Sula, Washington eventually became my home, and one of my biggest aspirations was to become an American citizen. I completed my high school studies in DC and will hopefully soon earn my bachelor's degree from @gwuniversity. . Often times, as civil society, we forget the privilege that it is to be able to hold free and fair elections, something that citizens in other countries long dream of. As Americans, we should exercise this privilege for the benefit of our citizens. I am excited to make my vote count for the first time in our next election!”

March is #WomensHistoryMonth! To celebrate, we’re honoring the courage of those who insisted women have a voice at the ballot box. Carrie Chapman Catt was the Director of the National American Woman Suffrage Association when the 19th Amendment was passed, a victory that she helped secure through her “Winning Plan” that promoted suffrage at the state level. While this was an important step forward, decades passed before all women, including women of color, could exercise their right to vote. Carrie later founded the @leagueofwomenvoters to bring more women into the voting process. 🎨 @kaywolfersperger

March is #WomensHistoryMonth! To celebrate, we’re honoring the courage of those who insisted women have a voice at the ballot box. Diane Nash organized the voting rights movement in #Selma, including the famous Selma to Montgomery March we remember today. The march attracted national attention when demonstrators were beaten by law enforcement on the Edmund Pettus Bridge, and led to the passage of the Voting Rights Act. From a young age, Diane dedicated her life to the pursuit of equality and justice. By the time she was leading efforts in Selma, Diane had already helped found the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, lead the Freedom Rides, and organize the March on Washington.

Ida devoted her life to the cause of justice as a journalist and activist. She ensured Black women had a voice in the suffrage movement even when they were excluded from other organizations and activities. Ida also championed the right to vote for the entire Black community, helping found civil rights organizations including the National Association of Colored Women's Clubs and the @naacp.
The fight for equal access to the ballot goes hand-in-hand with Black history. That’s why this #BlackHistoryMonth, we’re celebrating people and organizations changing the culture around voting. John Lewis was the youngest leader of the Civil Rights Movement and has dedicated his life to expanding access to the ballot. In 1965, he led the Selma to Montgomery March for voting rights, which turned violent when marchers were confronted by law enforcement on the Edmund Pettus Bridge. This critical moment propelled Congress to pass the Voting Rights Act. Now, African Americans could finally overcome barriers that prevented them from voting.
