The “9 Minute Challenge” is a nationwide political action campaign aimed at setting this country on a new path forward.
Once you text “9 minutes”, you will be given options of what you can do to make you nine minutes count. We challenge you to help change the path of our country by registering to vote, requesting a vote by mail ballot and then voting. We need you to reach out to others and encourage them to make a difference with their 9 minutes. 9 minutes represents the time that our brother George Floyd took his last breaths.
Other ways to participate in the 9 minute challenge will be to take 9 minutes to sign our petitions to end private prisons, stop mass incarcerations for people who suffer from drug addiction, abolish slavery in prisons, federal ban on chokeholds, the mandatory usage of body cameras, and a national registry system for filing and logging complaints against Law Enforcement Personnel.
Also, you can take the challenge through our social media platforms at Allen Ellison for Congress at Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
Once you have taken the challenge, be sure to upload a selfie of you taking the challenge and Don’t forget to use our hashtags #anewpathforward, #9minutes #makeitcount
