Faith Hill is doing everything she can to urge people to vote. The country singer has partnered with When We All Vote, a nonpartisan not-for-profit group that stresses the importance of Americans registering to vote and to take part in voting when elections come.
“When we all vote we make a difference,” Faith, a co-chair of When We All Vote, says in a statement. “A difference that can be felt all the way from Tennessee to the nation’s capital, and everywhere in between.”
On Sept. 24, Faith will headline a voting rally event at Nashville’s Marathon Music Works at 5 p.m. The free event will serve as an unofficial kickoff for the upcoming National Week of Action, which begins Sept. 22 and runs through Sept. 29. Throughout the week, communities across the country will help to host voter registration events.
Faith is a co-chair of When We All Vote with her husband, Tim McGraw, Michelle Obama, Tom Hanks, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Janelle Monáe and Chris Paul. In a nearly two-minute video, the former First Lady discusses the need for people to get out and vote.
“More than 50 years ago this week, the Voting Rights Act became law, and for decades it’s made our democracy stronger giving every American from every background and walk of life the right to vote,” Michelle says. “Fifty years is a long time though and sometimes it’s easy to forget all the work it took to get this law passed.”
She continues, “Today, we want to honor their legacy and continue their work to insure that every eligible American casts their vote, work that is far from finished.”
She then urges all Americans to get involved and help set up voter registration events in their own city. For more information, and to help register those to vote in your community, visit whenweallvote.org.
