"I urge you to take a few minutes on Tuesday and recognize the privilege we have in being able to vote. And I urge you to encourage your staff to vote, and to give them the time necessary to do so. Even with our country’s challenges and imperfections, and even with unfortunate impediments to voting decades ago and today, we still have an extraordinary opportunity to be heard, to recognize that we have a perspective and that our perspective matters. For those of us working in the arts—where the voice and perspective of artists, brought forward through our institutions, is the central focus—I would like to think that we understand the importance embedded in the right to vote as a matter of sharing our personal perspective, too." A friendly reminder from AAMD Executive Director Chris Anagnos to our membership and our facebook friends here in the US - get out and vote tomorrow!
