Be Part of the Solution

If you’re not registered to vote, you’re part of the problem.
If you didn’t vote, you’re part of the problem.
If you’ve never contacted your legislator, you’re part of the problem.
If you’ve ever voted for a candidate because of an ad you saw on TV, you’re part of the problem.
If you don’t know who your Senators are, you’re part of the problem.

If you don’t think you can be part of the solution, you’re part of the problem.

Whatever the problem is, be part of the solution.
