In 2016, 43% of eligible voters—nearly 100 million Americans—didn't vote.

In 2018, Michelle Obama launched an initiative called When We All Vote.

Partners included Tom Hanks, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Janelle Monáe, Chris Paul, Faith Hill, Selena Gomez, Liza Koshy, Megan Rapinoe, Shonda Rhimes, Tracee Ellis Ross, Kerry Washington, and Rita Wilson, as the organization engaged with millions of voters prior to the 2018 election.

In 2020, when in-person organizational opportunities are largely off the table, When We All Vote is focusing its energy on digital initiatives and online content.

An Open Letter to Chance the Rapper: Kanye 2020 Should Scare You

Kanye's 2020 campaign can't bring about transformative change—it can only help Donald Trump get reelected.


Before you came along, the career you've had would have been impossible to imagine.

There was no model for the kind of independent artist you set out to be. You stood up to record labels that wanted to throw money at you to give up your independence. You gave up nothing and continued to succeed.

Recording Acid Rap at 19 was an insane achievement. You followed it up with Coloring Book at a time when a streaming-only album had never won a Grammy. It won three. You've credited God for your success. Maybe you're right, but my own preference is to credit your optimism, your immense talent, and your unshakeable will.

You stand up for what you believe, and you're not in the habit of letting long-shot odds deter you. I'm going to let that attitude inspire me while I try to convince you to stop supporting Kanye 2020. I know I probably can't do it, but I feel like I have to try.
