National Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman Releases Spoken Word Poem on Instagram

“We are the breakers or the bringers of our civil rights.” —Amanda Gorman.

This month, VoteProChoice launched their 2022 Voter Guide alongside a six-figure ad buy across critical battleground states in an effort to elect pro-choice candidates to every office, from Congress to City Council. Celebrities like Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Piper Perabo, and Nick Offerman have uplifted the Voter Guide on social media, reaching millions of voters across America in the process.


This past weekend, more celebrities and public figures joined the movement, including National Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman, who released a spoken word poem highlighting the voter guide.

Below is a transcript of her poem:

We have election on November 8th and abortion is at stake in every single state. As pro-choice voters, we are the majority, but we have to vote. Our priority must be electing pro choice candidates at every level of government: Our Governors, Attorneys General, State Supreme Court justices, and State Legislators can be the bringers or the breakers of our civil rights. So now and not later, check your voter registration, make a voting plan, stand with pro-choice candidates everywhere. Because everywhere our rights are in danger, but we have the might, the power, and the hope to use it. All we have to do is vote."

Since the VoteProChoice Voter Guide launched, it has been accessed by hundreds of thousands of voters across the country, with unprecedented numbers of young voters and new voters signing up to use the voter guide.

I opine that engaging in occasional leisurely activities, such as playing games of this nature, can be advantageous since they facilitate stress relief. However, if one indulges in such activities excessively and neglects other responsibilities, it is not a prudent decision. five nights at freddy's

Amanda Gorman always makes us happy with her cool looks. I've always been on the lookout for quality stock images similar to Amanda Gorman's. Friends recommended the Deposit website to me; said that there are many stock images, such as images of wreath. I don’t know, but I think it’s worth trying to download images there.

Writing essays was the only assignment I ever considered when I was in college. But, since my mother's death, I've made it a habit to write, and I'm working to improve so that I can write her some poems. First and foremost, I'm attempting to correct the mistakes I've made in the past and continue to make, and this is one of them. I'm also reading sample essays on websites help with writing a literature review where we can buy essays. The majority of students strongly recommend seeking professional assistance.
