Art at the heart of democracy: 2020 US Presidential election
The 2020 US Presidential Election is scheduled for 3 November this year. As an alien here, the most important thing for me is that the elections are fair.

The idea is simple. 50 artists create 50 works of art. Donate at least $100 to the Movement Voter Project (MVP) and you get to claim one of the artworks as your own.
All donations go support the best and most promising grassroots organizations in key swing states, with a focus on youth and communities of color. MVP vets and supports hundreds of incredible groups that fight voter suppression, get out the vote, swing elections, and win on issues.
In the USA, people wear their political colors on their sleeve. It still surprises me when people openly talk about their allegiance, like it’s a sporting team.
But I will say this much, the elections this year won’t just have ramifications for the USA, it will ricochet around the world for years to come. All the more reason to ensure everyone who can vote, gets a chance to have their say.
