Election 2020: What Matters
curated by Billy Howard
I think we can all agree that the election in November will be remembered as one of the most important in our lives.
In the next 4 issues of South x Southeast Magazine we want you to show us what matters.
Be it climate change, care for the elderly and disabled, child care, women’s rights, immigration, voting rights, tax reform, homelessness, the arts, protection of our waters, protection of our national parks, education, our food, health care, you name it. We are all looking for a way to contribute, to make a difference, to have a voice in this country. This call for work is one way South x Southeast can contribute to the conversation by giving its readers an opportunity to not only share their art but their heart as well.
