“Activism works. So what I’m telling you to do now, is to act. Because no one is too small to make a difference.”
~ Greta Thunberg, Climate Change Activist, Age 17
Vail Valley Votes is a community of volunteers, led by local citizens who believe that voting is essential to ensure that we elect representatives who will respect and protect our democracy and the rule of law, protect our environment advocate for the rights of all and otherwise engage in sustained advocacy for progressive change.
Values that guide our actions and interactions include the necessity of civil political discourse, honesty for ourselves and our elected officials, and fairness in all our actions. We are all volunteers and strive to be respectful in all our endeavors. We are nonpartisan, peaceful and inclusive.
