Bryan Stevenson: You Gotta Vote!

Filed under Social Justice

Thinking of sitting out this year's presidential election? Think again.

This election is about so much more than a single candidate. It's about America's most marginalized populations—the poor, the oppressed, the abused, the condemned. In 2016, more than ever, their lives depend on the outcome of this election.

For decades, human rights lawyer Bryan Stevenson has worked on behalf of our country's most vulnerable people, as an attorney and founder of the Equal Justice Initiative. In this video, he explains why voting is so critical for all Americans who care about human rights.

"If you don't want to vote for yourself, vote for them," he says. "Vote for the marginalized."
