I stand for Hillary because she’s on a mission to make this place better for all people. She understands that America is already great, but we can do more. She’s a champion for the middle class, minorities, immigrants, elders, and children. Hillary understands the importance of education and will work toward students receiving debt-free and tuition-free educations. During the Democratic National Convention, she stated the following: “We will reform our criminal justice system from end to end, and rebuild trust between law enforcement and the communities they serve.” 

That’s the kind of leader I want. I rock with her view about a woman’s right to choose what she does with her body. She is a woman—an experienced woman. A woman who is ready to serve her country and who has been serving her country for years. There’s no reason not to be with her. I just really want my young homies to get out there and vote. If you don’t vote, you are still voting. Your voice is still being heard, believe it or not. It just might not count for the greater good. Let’s make it count for our generation and the generations to come.
