Tracee Ellis Ross was honored with introducing Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton at a campaign rally at The Smith Center for Performing Arts on Wednesday in Las Vegas. Now Ross is taking to Instagram to spread her knowledge and awareness of how important it is to get out and vote.
“There is so much at stake in this election, the Blackish star captioned a photo of her at Vegas rally. “I know people have very strong feelings about our 2 main candidates, some of us have given up hope, some of us are scared and many truly don’t see the point when they are being shown their lives don’t matter. But the truth is you do matter! We must care enough about ourselves to speak up and cast our votes.”
She goes on to address her time at the Rally “talking to people, listening, making sure we Americans are registered and know about early voting.” She concludes her message with an inspiring quote from the First Lady Michelle Obama.
“First lady @MichelleObama said it best…’here’s the truth: either Hillary Clinton or her opponent will be elected president this year. And if you vote for someone other than Hillary, or if you don’t vote at all, then you are helping to elect her opponent..We have everything we need to stop this madness…we have a voice. We have a vote. And on November the 8th, we as women, we as Americans, we as decent human beings can come together and declare that enough is enough.’ #ImWithHer”
Well said. Read her full Instagram message below, and remember to get out and vote next month!
