Public Affairs Concepts is a partnership of three women. Here are our stories:
I arrived in the United States at age 14 as a Cuban refugee. Experiencing life in a socialist country has given me a great appreciation for freedom and the idea of being an active participant in government decisions.
As soon as I became a citizen, I registered to vote and voted that same year on my first presidential election. Although I didn’t have a lot of information about what was on the ballot or knowledge of the candidates I still voted. But I felt that I needed to be informed about making those decisions.
That information came in the form of the League of Women Voters, I found out about the group and joined them immediately. Being part of that organization and holding leadership positions have provided me with the tools necessary to help and encourage others to participate in democracy. I’m Maribel Balbin and I’m committed to Public Affairs Concepts and its mission of engaging citizens in the democratic process.
When I was a young girl, I loved looking at maps and imagining all the places I might travel, the new people I would meet, the new things I could learn. In the small town where I grew up, I quickly noticed that nearly everyone around me looked the same, spoke the same way, and thought pretty much the same way about the world. This was concerning to me.
As a result, I believe that when more people understand the power of their vote and exercise that power, they can elect leaders who are responsive to and reflective of the communities they serve.
I am Melissa Hunsberger of Public Affairs Concepts, and we help companies activate their employees, stakeholders, and clients, increasing voter education and voter turnout. All in a nonpartisan manner.
When I was a little girl, I knew from the women in my life, my mother and grandmother, that there was unfairness for women. I saw this in the kinds of jobs and opportunities my mother had, and also, the way her mother was treated by her community as a young widow with 2 little girls, figuring out how to survive in the Great Depression.
I believe that all of us, and especially women, need to understand how important it is to vote and how their vote can impact their life each day.
I am Susan Windmiller with Public Affairs Concepts and we want to work with companies, on a larger scale, to teach their employees about the power of voting and the process to vote.
"This has been a most unusual election season, in the midst of a pandemic, with many twists and turns. Public Affairs Concepts will conduct a complimentary 30-minute interactive webinar entitled, ""Your Vote: 7 Impacts To Your Daily Life."" The webinar will focus on the importance of a non-partisan issue, such as clean, safe drinking water, and how your vote impacts that issue. One measurement of the health of a community is whether businesses and their members actively participate in the process to elect officials. Such participation is the first step to holding elected officials accountable to pass laws and spend local tax dollars consistent with what the community wants. Webinar attendees will learn: 1. the issues that impact daily living the most 2. which elected officials make decisions with the greatest effect 3. what else they can do beyond voting"Redeem Instructions:
