Letter: Be heard in streets, and at polls


An important but under-publicized event recently took place in Missouri. After participating in a march following the death of George Floyd, 62 members of the University of Missouri football team registered to vote.

Change comes not merely from protesting, but from electing candidates who take seriously the issues raised in protests and work to address those issues. Protesters need to make their voices heard at the ballot box, not only in the streets.
