"We are lucky to live in a country where people can participate and make a difference, whether it's through voting, volunteering, or participating in a Census or town hall. We have commitments from dozens of leading companies like Amazon, Facebook, and Starbucks, who will work together to support the strength of our communities and democracy, particularly in an election year where we can encourage first time voters, promote online registration efforts, and create digital campaigns to help people find their nearest polling station, said Richard Lovett, President of Creative Artists Agency, a founding company of the Civic Alliance, adding that it hopes “more companies and citizens will join us in this effort to shape a more optimistic future.”
