Only by showing people that the community cares about them  like by connecting them to local resources that can assist with their day-to-day problems can we empower them to feel like they should care about their community. And enough to vote, not just in one particular year, or for any particular candidate, but to remain engaged over time and across races even when change doesn't happen overnight. Marvin
