Vote and Read with UW Impact

Summer greetings from UW Impact!

First, we strongly encourage all UW Impact advocates to participate in your civic duty to vote. Tuesday, August 3 – is Election Day here in Washington state. Ballot boxes close at 8pm. You still have time to vote! Your voice matters — make sure you use it.

Second: it’s time for summer reading!

Each summer, UW Impact offers a reading opportunity which encourages Huskies to broaden their horizons and reflect on political and social issues. This year, we are reading Stacey Abrams’ political thriller While Justice Sleeps, in partnership with the UW Alumni Association and UW Libraries’ Alumni Book Club. The Alumni Book Club is a self-paced literary educational experience with an online engagement component. We will read this book over a two-month span, in August and September. Last year, we engaged hundreds of Huskies with The Color of Law by Richard Rothstein. We hope many of you will join us again this summer!
Join the UW Alumni Book Club community by signing up here. As a part of joining this digital experience you’ll receive regular communications to help you get the most of your reading experience, from suggested timelines to moderated online discussions.

We hope you are having a stellar summer!
