The One Voice Project is the culmination of months of frustration resulting from the depiction of Bernie Sanders perpetuated by mainstream media outlets throughout this election cycle. If pundits paid any attention at all, that is. For a while, he was just some old, white Jewish guy from Brooklyn. Hardly controversial, rarely ever divisive, and not exactly sexy. So we decided to help out.
I am told over and over that my vote belongs to Sec. Clinton because she’s the only candidate who truly understands the plight of women in America. I wanted to say, ‘Just because Bernie Sanders doesn’t share your anatomy doesn’t mean he doesn’t represent OUR interests.’ Gender equality means focusing on the policy, not the package.
He may be an old white guy, but I believe he speaks for all of us.
