Live in Maryland and adopted PA because it’s my closest swing state.

I adopted AZ because I live in CA and I wanted to travel there to volunteer. Even though that probably won't be an option - they have great candidates and a real opportunity to turn blue!
Mallory Zumbach

Mallory (she/hers) here from Portland, OR! I adopted Michigan because I felt like it has a strong chance of going blue and one of the companies I consult for is based there, so I get to hear a lot of stories about what it’s like on the ground! Plus, #MichiganHustlesHarder!

Having two daughters and knowing what they would face if I didn't fight for them. Studying WW2 in college and knowing what happens when people stay silent. My grandfather getting a hernia repaired so he could fight in WW2 gave me a clear sense of the responsibility I had to my country and my community.
Michelle Bosch

Growing up in a very conservative area with closed minded people. I knew at 10 I had to leave and find a life more suited to who I wanted to be. I didn’t know what that meant, but I knew i had to make it happen. 8 years later I moved to NYC and started to grow and learn!

Living with a debilitating chronic illness from a young age. Values of "not for self" (non-sibi) instilled in me from my high school which gave me a community. Wanting to make people I admire proud. And also I have time and want to stay grounded during these very uncertain times (fires, pandemic, I'm losing my health insurance when I turn 26 in a few months).
Courtney Baker WI

I grew up in DFW, TX around a lot of conservative folks and really witnessed a lot of hypocrisy - that combined with having parents who really pushed the idea of treating others as we want to be treated was eye opening. Now I’m a single mother and sole proprietor of a small business, and I see the need for support for working families - the need to overcome inequality is REAL. Finally, both of my sis-in-laws are nurses (one of whom has Type 1 Diabetes) and so the mishandling of COVID feels SUPER urgent.

coming of age as a gay teen during 8 years of Reagan, being villainized by him and Jesse Helms, while they ignored the AIDS crisis turned me into an activist

How can we spot misinformation? Easy to say everything from Fox news is fake but…people watch it. How do we spot the fake articles?
Amanda Brink, WI
01:00:49
1 — social media (facebook & twitter) are actually now doing a decent job of pointing these things out… it often says “fact check”
Laura Piervincenzi, PA
01:00:59
How does this connect to fighting misinformation?
Judy Haddad
01:01:18
Facebook has not fact-checked any QAnon pages, yet has with Joe Biden ads, so no…I wouldn’t trust facebook
Erin Sforza, FL
01:03:47
Are we connecting 1-1 so that we can build a trusted network to amplify the truth and combat misinformation?
Andrea - AZ

Stephen, FL

That’s definitely happened to me. A friend talked to me because she believed COVID wasn’t a valid excuse in NY for absentee/VBM. I sent her the .gov page that explicitly said that. Funny how a lot of these things will happen organically
Stephen, FL
01:06:03
She believed that because of some post, but couldn’t recall where
Toby Favalora
01:07:18
A couple weeks ago it wasnt valid, could that have been it?
Stephen, FL
01:07:49
It was valid in NY in the primary, and is still listed on the website as a valid excuse
