Syndic Special Issue ~ Election Day 2020 “Freedom’s Frontliners”

Freedom’s Frontliners

By Jennifer Lagier

At 71, confined to semi-quarantine

during a year of pandemic,

I appreciate essential electoral workers

who phone bank, walk precincts, raise funds,

write letters to the editor,

address campaign post cards,

install yard signs,

find creative ways to engage community,

organize, get out the vote,

keep hope alive.

 

Everyday volunteers

push back against those who would

suppress our voices,

take away voting rights,

discourage participation.

Willing to walk the talk,

they labor to preserve democracy,

patriotic souls on the front lines

to protect American freedom.
