In a new ad, the Lincoln Democracy Institute outlines how the choice in this election is between hope or a rising autocracy that is challenging the rights and freedoms of millions of Americans. Narrated by actor Mark Hamill, the ad is the third in a series telling voters they need to make a plan to vote in the most consequential election in decades.
You can watch the ad here. It will run digitally and on cable in Grand Rapids, MI; Harrisburg, Pennsylvania; La Crosse-Eau Claire, Wisconsin; Reno, NV; and Tuscon, Arizona.
“These midterms will decide whether or not America will be governed by those who want to roll back voting rights and pursue policies that will lock out the voices of millions of Americans,” Erin Dobson, Executive Director, Lincoln Democracy Institute.. “All Americans need to make a plan to vote this fall and make a strong declaration against the forces of authoritarianism who threaten to destroy our democratic institutions. Everyone who cares for democracy must vote this fall.”
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(c)(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.
