ABOUT MY FAMILY VOTES!
My Family Votes! is an all-volunteer initiative. We are a small but mighty group of Philadelphia voters who are, as Fanny Lou Hamer said, "Sick and tired of being sick and tired." Maybe political corruption, scandal, and business-as-usual make you feel the same way. Join us. We're ready to march on the polls.​

In 2017, our primary focus is the District Attorney's race, an office that has a more immediate and long-lasting impact on the African American community than most city offices. We care about restoring integrity back to the District Attorney's office while bringing balanced justice to all citizens.

Unfortunately, in Philly, there are too many African American people sitting in jail who should be diverted to programs or set free.

If you don't identify as African American, you'll be interested in our message, too. As Martin Luther King, Jr. stated, "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." Join us to move more informed voters to the polls on November 7th.
