You’re never too young to canvass, especially in an election as important as the one on November 6th.
Aaron, aged 6, canvassed in Providence District with his mom and 3-year-old sister Hannah recently, and made it the highlight of his “Weekend News” homework assignment for his first-grade class.
His text reads: “Over the weekend I went canvassing. Canvassing is reminding people to vote. I did it with my Mom and my sister, Hannah.”
He illustrated the article with depictions of a happy potential voter and signs reading:
“Vote for Democrats”; “Election on Nov. 6th“; “Tim Kaine for Senate”; and “Gerry Connolly for Congress”
Aaron’s mom, an active member of Providence District Democratic Committee, reports that Aaron ” has not expressed any specific interest in politics but he is very aware of the role politicians play. He has a strong sense of what is right and fair and feels very strongly when he thinks they aren’t doing the right thing.”
We could all learn a lesson from Aaron.
