The American Human Rights Council (AHRC-USA) calls upon all fellow American citizens who are registered and eligible to vote in Michigan to make their voices heard in Michigan’s Primary on Tuesday, March 8, 2016.
The 2016 elections are of great importance and making the right choices by electing the right candidates is very crucial to our future. AHRC reminds all that voting is the people’s power to protect and advance basic human rights. The active participation of all Americans in elections will help shape our nation and will help better shape our common future. Key basic human rights are vital to advance our health, our education, our access to clean water and sanitation and more. In order to preserve and advance human rights for all Americans, we must elect candidates who are committed to this value. The Flint water crisis, the Detroit Public Schools crisis, and the disposal of hazardous radioactive wastes in our communities are key examples of why citizens must make their voices heard as loud as possible.
“By not voting, we compromise our basic rights voluntarily and we help others to comprise them further,” said Imad Hamad, AHRC Executive Director. “Democracy is not a spectator sport. If you do not vote, you are not part of the democratic process,” continued Hamad.
