8. Ruth Bader Ginsburg
We need to do the notorious feminist icon’s legacy proud by fighting for the things we care about. And, with her passing, her vacant Supreme Court seat is hugely consequential.

In September, we passed the 200,000 mark of American lives lost to COVID-19. But they aren’t just a statistic or a number—they were people, with moms and dads, brothers and sisters, husbands and wives. We need leadership who can guide us with care, empathy, and responsibility through these challenging and frightening times. Let’s elect leaders who will unite us—and protect us—through this crisis.

31. Get Prepped for Election Day
If you aren’t voting by mail, find out all the wheres, whens, and hows of election day in your area. Make sure you know where to go, when to be there, what you’ll need, and that you have a way to get there. Don’t forget your mask and any other pandemic-time precautions you’d like to bring (hand sanitizer, face shield, protective bubble, hazmat suit—you get the idea).
