Andre 3000,?uest Love, Jessica Alba, DJ Jazzy Jeff and others say " Declare Yourself" and VOTE!


Well, if you have not read the latest reports....there are eight million Black people in America who are still not registered to vote and millions more across the country. There are several organizations and groups stepping forward to get young people and Americans as a whole to step up to the plate.

One very interesting and impactful campaign I saw on People Magazine's website is about the voter group Declare Yourself. They have used some very deep photos for their campaign that will make you think twice (or thrice) about what is the price for remaining silent in this upcoming November election..

As reported by People Mag, Jessica Alba isn't afraid to employ a little shock value for a cause she believes in. "I think it is important for young people to be aware of the need we have in this country to get them more active politically," says Alba, 27. "People respond to things that are shocking."

"If you don't register and vote and make a difference, and hopefully change the bad things that are happening in our country, you are essentially just binding and muzzling yourself."
