“Donald Trump is destroying our country and everything we care about. We need leaders who will solve problems like climate change and Covid, not deny them. Leaders who will fight against systemic racism and inequality, and that starts by voting for someone who understands how much is at stake, someone who is building a team that shares our values,” Eilish said. “It starts with voting against Donald Trump and for Joe Biden.”

Eilish called for Americans show up in support of Biden on that day.
“Silence is not an option and we cannot sit this one out,” she said. “We all have to vote like our lives and the world depend on it, because they do. The only way to be certain of the future is to make it ourselves.”
