We Are Substantial and So Is Our VOTE

All to often we are told our voice matters, our vote counts and yet a large majority of us still do nothing. Since the Voting Rights Act of 1965 we’ve been given the right to ensure we get a say in who governs, creates laws, policies, and leads America.

This election as you’ve again so often heard holds to some degree the Fate of American Democracy, but not so much because of the potential for another four years of Donald Trump, but because we have lost hope and faith in what was meant to be a fair, just and equal system. Let’s show up and exercise our right to elect who leads us.

Substantial plans to use this page to keep you up-to-date with news, information, and tips to ensure you’re informed and empowered going into this year’s election.
