Audio Article - An Open Letter to Everyone Who Won’t Stop Telling Me to Vote - Queer Sex Ed Podcast: Episode 39

Sara reads her most recent article about voter suppression for Medium.com. Please vote if you can in the US on November 6th, but remember that this system will never change just from votes alone.

Until we address that underlying bigotry, voting will continue to be restricted and manipulated to oppress people who are already marginalized."
