This morning, the Dream Defenders are launching the Vest or Vote campaign (#VestOrVote). Given recent events in Ferguson and St. Louis, and elections starting across the country, we believe it is time to talk about the road ahead of us— and to act. 
Vest or Vote is about a choice: accepting a world in which youth of color are at risk of losing their lives on a daily basis, or choosing power instead.
In a PSA, a mother considers what she must do to keep her child from suffering the fate of Trayvon, Jordan, Oscar, Mike, and too many others.
On billboards and in ads on Facebook and Twitter, we feature a young boy advertising the sale of a “Dream Vest”— a bulletproof vest for children.
We ask you to join us in solidarity, and make #VestOrVote your own.
