What Can You Do?

There are 3 days left until the election.

What can YOU do to help create the outcomes that you want?

For you, the most important part of the election might not be choosing our president. Maybe the most important part of the election to you is making sure that there is money for parks. Maybe it is getting your congressman re-elected because he has always taken care of the needs of your neighborhood. Maybe it is a marriage amendment. Maybe, for you, it's all about our judges.

Whatever your priorities, whatever your views . . . now is the time to MAKE THINGS HAPPEN.

Authors and Illustrators for Children is a political organization that my good friend April Halprin Wayland started in 2004 with fellow author Bruce Balan. They reached out to children's authors and illustrators all over the country and gathered us together to turn our individual voices into one great big loud political cheer. I really admire what April and Bruce did. They had a vision and worked to make things happen.

Please take a look at our group's website and, if you like what we're doing, share our link. Take a look at the impressive list of authors and illustrators; I'm sure that you'll find some of your favorites there. Just THREE more days until the election. Jump in!
