The Push to Vote.
Community efforts to get the millions of newly-naturalized to vote, especially in Colorado and other battleground states; and campaigns in California to encourage young voters who cast a ballot for the first time, many of whom are the children of immigrant, who are considered essential workers during the pandemic emergency; and the latest news about the Early Vote, are topics in this program. Also, musicians and organizers of the virtual concert 50/50 All Souls to the Polls, 50 artists from 50 states, talk about how they are promoting through music a massive tsunami to the voting polls.
