Presents: #Voteforlove

Creative Direction: Derek Warburton

Who would have thought that in the year 2020 the world would be experiencing a pandemic true to something we would have seen in a science fiction movie? That it would feel like we are the main protagonists of films like Contagion or Outbreak? And to top it all off…. its election year, and not just a regular election year, but one where the “Right” and the “Left” seem to be at the height of polarization. Luckily there are organizations like “Fellow Americans” that are engaging us to act on our civic responsibility through social influencers to get out and vote.

For this feature of The Social Networth, an empowering movement starring influencers that create visibility for social causes, we have partnered with a group of incredible and diverse influencers that want to create the unifying message: #Voteforlove. We have also partnered with pop artist @Olegjones and his groundbreaking project called “Upgrade To Love”. Oleg believes that life is a constant evolution and it is time to upgrade our flag. He designed the American flag with 51 stars (states) and with an extra star for love (all the stars being in a heart shape).

Wherever you are in the political spectrum our message is simple…Vote! And vote for whoever speaks to you. If there is anything that we all know now for sure, is that life is extremely unpredictable. So, in celebration of the hypothesis of life (otherwise known as an educated guess) let’s all give it our best shot and… vote!

Name: Diana Madison
IG Handle: @dianamadison
Birthplace: Los Angeles, CA (Little Armenia)

Passions
Acting, my kids and family, helping the awareness of the crisis in Armenia, playing with skincare and beauty products.

What is the most important cause in the world to you?
Right now, it is to end all injustice against people who have no voice. I am very committed to helping Armenia and Artsakh and help the USA legislators intervene to help end aggression against the Armenians. I want to help bring awareness towards the injustice in the world like in Nigeria. Since I am a descendant of the Armenian Genocide, for me it’s important to help stop injustice towards people.

If you were president… what would you do to unite the nation?
As a parent, I understand that everything starts from home and school. It’s important for children to be showered with love and give love to others. It’s important for children to learn to respect others and appreciate themselves as individuals. When kids are taught to love, there is no room for hate. It all begins with our kids. Schools should implement programs to help kids learn how to socialize with one another with love and respect and not to bully each other.

Passions
Personal Development, Producing, Directing, Writing, Hosting and Connecting.

What is the most important cause in the world to you?
The most important cause in the world to me is radical acceptance. That doesn’t mean to sit back and not get involved in things that need to chance. Actually, radical acceptance for me is being very proactive in making the world a better place and not to judge for the way it is. Being in life with acceptance is to follow the flow of the river. Right now, more than ever we need to love and accept one another…that is the fast track to a happy and fulfilled life.

If you were president… what would you do to unite the nation?
Again, I believe that the first thing to do is to accept the current situation and then move forward. I am a big believer of the golden rule “don’t do to others what you wouldn’t want them to do to you.” I would first speak to our nation and empathetically connect with them. I would take responsibility that the country is the way it is under my watch and therefore it’s my responsibility to fix it. I believe that taking responsibility is a sign of strength and not weakness and my mission would be to empower my country so that we could all rise together.

What is the most important cause in the world to you?
Helping women beat breast cancer.
Working towards universal healthcare.

If you were president… what would you do to unite the nation?

Name: Taye Hansberry
IG Handle: @tayehansberry
Birthplace: Los Angeles, CA

Passions
People, Photography, Fashion, What is happening in the world.

What is the most important cause in the world to you?
There is nothing more important than the human struggle. People and their equality is the most important cause to me. I want to make sure everyone has a chance to enjoy life.

If you were president… what would you do to unite the nation?
I would make everyone spend 1 week with a person whom they feel is different than them. Those differences could be race, sexual orientation, disabilities and age. I believe that once people spend time with one another the reality that we are all essentially the same at heart will rise. We will see that any difference is actually beautiful.

Passions
Singing, Music, Acting, Horror, Nature.

What is the most important cause in the world to you?
The most pressing cause of importance is the fight against climate change. After all, if we don’t have a sustainable, healthy and livable Earth it won’t matter what we change as a human race to better our lives.

If you were president… what would you do to unite the nation?
Something that, I believe, connects us all in the desire to empower our younger generations to be better than we are. As president, I would create a united front to provide equal opportunity for learning in all neighborhoods regardless of socio-economic status.

Equality for all races, genders and cultures.
