Meghan Markle will hold the position of a special guest on Thursday at a virtual voter registration program conducted by Michelle Obama’s nonpartisan organization When We All Vote as it intends to reach 300,000 eligible female voters.
A major commemoration
When We All Vote has collaborated with The United State of Women, a gender equity foundation hailing from the Obama government’s White House Council on Women and Girls to organize a series of events for over a week marking the anniversary of the 19th Amendment. The Suits actress, former Obama White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, Glamour editor in chief Samantha Barry, actress Yvette Nicole Brown and DJ Diamond Kuts are all expected to adopt a crucial role in the upcoming event.
With an objective
When We All Vote paves its commitment to bridge the race and age gap in the field of voting whereas celebrity co-chairs Tom Hanks, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Janelle Monáe, Chris Paul, Faith Hill, Selena Gomez, Liza Koshy, Megan Rapinoe, Shonda Rhimes, Tracee Ellis Ross, Kerry Washington, and Rita Wilson would also come forward to take the initiative a success.
The purpose behind the approach is to lay down the path for “fair and safe elections” by expanding the access to vote-by-mail, in-person voting at an early phase, and online voter registration as against the global pandemic. Meanwhile, the topic has turned highly controversial in recent times.
The chronicled pages
On the other hand, Markle’s involvement in the process would press on a historical significance as members of the royal brood are barred from discussing politics. Meghan even voiced in a Marie Claire article in August saying she will vote in this year’s Presidential Election which features Obama, Gabrielle Union, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Hillary Clinton, and 95 other renowned women on the power of voting.
