Pledge to Vote

I pledge to exercise my right vote, my right to participate in government, my right to voice my political beliefs, and my right to express my social values.

Every Monday morning at the Fred T. Korematsu Discovery Academy in East Oakland, California, a low-income neighborhood made up of mostly African American and Latino families, students recite the following creed: "Korematsu! We stand up for what is right!"

Let's stand up together this November for what is right.
