Feeling like the world is falling apart has become an anthem for 2020. While we don’t need to regurgitate the CVS receipt of events that have made this year (and the 3 years before that) *particularly rough,* it does feel more important than ever to pinpoint the ways in which we have agency – as a community, as a country, as humans working to make the world a better place than how we found it. As the Exygy team partners with social impact organizations to design and build tech for good, it has never been clearer that our place in the movement starts with advocating for underserved communities both in our work, as well as at the polls.
Advocacy takes many shapes and forms, and we all have something to give. Whether it’s your network, art, money, time, or vote, the important thing is that you find what you can contribute to the cause, and commit!
As we race towards November 3rd, here are a few essential resources that our team has found useful in making the most of this precarious time before Election Day.
Give Your Time
1. Volunteer with Indivisible: Call, text, and write to swing-state Democrats to give them the precise information they need to vote early and safely.
2. Mobilize for 2020 Victory: On any given day from now to Election Day, you can get trained and join local organizers in phone banking for the Biden/Harris campaign.
11. Emily’s List recruits, trains, and supports pro-choice Democratic women candidates at every level of the ballot. Check out their State & Local endorsed candidates.
Share Your Art
12. Creatives for Biden is an opportunity for artists to submit their work (designs, sculptures, illustrations) representing any of the 40 policy plans put forward by the Biden/Harris campaign.
With so many critical issues at stake – from the right to choose what you do with your body, to police brutality and the lack of justice for too many Black lives lost, to saving our planet from irreversible damage, to fair and affordable housing, to ensuring all Americans have access to quality health care without going into debt – we simply can’t afford any regrets come November 3rd.
How are you taking action? I’d love to know where you’re investing your time and energy to change the course of history (no pressure, huh!). Forward this to a friend or two – get fired up and ready to go!
What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

It is Time that Tech for Good Serves the Undocumented Community
As an undocumented teenager living in the pre-DACA era, I never thought I’d have the chance to do the work I get to do at Exygy.
