Michelle Obama Encourages Women of Color to Vote

According to Michelle Obama, women of color know how to get things done at the polls.

The former First Lady has spoken. Michelle Obama is advising women of color to vote in the upcoming midterm elections.

“Women of color know how to get things done for our families, our communities, and our country. When we use our voices, people listen. When we lead, people follow. And when we do it together, there’s no telling what we can accomplish. Join me and make sure that our sisters, our children, our congregations, and our neighbors are registered to vote. Register to vote and join us for the @WhenWeAllVote Week of Action: weall.vote/weekofaction,” the former First Lady wrote on her Instagram.

Michelle Obama also posted a video on the “When We Vote” YouTube channel explaining that the power of voting is an issue that she cares deeply about. “We’ve all seen the difference we can make when we choose to cast our ballots. And we’ve seen the consequences when we don’t bother to show up to the polls,” the former First Lady says.


It is clear that to create change, the first step is voting. We will see what the elections will bring.
