The Lincoln Democracy Institute announces it is placing billboards in downtown Philadelphia to encourage voting in the critical 2022 midterm elections. Evoking images of the civil rights movement, the billboards are designed to let the public know what’s at stake in this election.
“This is a critical election that will determine who controls the Governorship, with major implications for the 2024 Presidential election,” said Erin Dobson, Lincoln Democracy Institute Executive Director. “Up and down the ballot, the values we cherish are under threat by authoritarian candidates who want to obtain power to serve themselves and not the people. The billboards are a way to remind voters of what democracy looks like and what we risk losing in this election.”
The Lincoln Democracy Institute (LDI) responds in real time to threats to our democracy. It repudiates the lies of the right wing media and pushes back against those who threaten to use violence. As the 501©(4) nonprofit affiliate of the Lincoln Project, LDI seeks to defeat the forces that imperil our democratic system, reminding Americans of the values that unite us and educating voters on a nonpartisan basis on the urgency for all of us to participate in the democratic process.
