Taylor Swift urged the importance of Voting to fight against racism

Taylor Swift is using her social media platform to stress the importance of exercising one's right to vote. The pop star took to her Twitter to write, "Racial injustice has been ingrained deeply into local and state governments, and changes MUST be made there. In order for policies to change, we need to elect people who will fight against police brutality and racism of any kind. #BlackLivesMatter." Further, Swift went on to share a recent article written by former President Barack Obama, describing it as a "fascinating read." In the article, titled ‘How to Make this Moment the Turning Point for Real Change,’ and published on Medium, Obama writes that it's ultimately up to a "new generation of activists" to keep the momentum going following the nationwide protests held in response to the death of George Floyd. The 30-year-old singer additionally shared more resources on everything her followers need to know to vote. "We need to fight for in-mail voting for the 2020 election," she wrote in another tweet, sharing a resource. "No one should have to choose between their health and having their voice heard."
