After Indiana passes abortion ban, college students urged to vote

One day before Indiana’s controversial legislation restricting people’s eligibility and access to abortions was to take effect, a hundred people gathered at the Monroe County Courthouse for an abortion rights vigil. Some keynote speakers spoke of their sadness and exhaustion over the news. Others spoke with fervor and fire in their voice, demanding a change. But in all the speeches, they shared one clear message: Everyone needs to register to vote.

Semhar Araya, vice president of Indiana University’s chapter of the NAACP and a keynote speaker at the vigil, spoke about how an effective way to use your voice in the United States is to participate in local elections.
