(Washington, DC): Ahead of their first game in the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup, When We All Vote and the United States Women’s National Soccer Team (USWNT) released a video message calling on Americans and soccer fans to get registered and ready to vote, reminding them that there are no off-years when it comes to making their voices heard. In the video message, When We All Vote Co-Chair Megan Rapinoe, along with Crystal Dunn and Andi Sullivan, encourage viewers to register to vote and check their voter registration status before the upcoming elections.

More than 20 million viewers tuned into 2019’s FIFA Women’s World Cup Final, making it the second most-watched soccer match on English-language television and a turning point in the fight for equality for the team. ​​This year, as the team prepares for the first World Cup after the U.S. Men’s and Women’s Teams signed historic collective bargain agreements to split the prize money from their respective World Cups, they remain committed to advancing the fight for equal rights and justice for every American, beginning with the fundamental right to vote.

The video message reminds Americans that it’s never too early to start the voter registration process and prepare to vote. The USWNT stars ask Americans to cheer on their team, fight for their community and give their all at the ballot box. A full transcript of the video is below.

ABOUT When We All Vote: 

When We All Vote is a leading national, nonpartisan initiative on a mission to change the culture around voting and to increase participation in each and every election by helping to close the race and age gap. Created by Michelle Obama, When We All Vote brings together individuals, institutions, brands, and organizations to register new voters across the country and advance civic education for the entire family and voters of every age to build an informed and engaged electorate for today and generations to come. We empower our supporters and volunteers to take action through voting, advocating for their rights, and holding their elected officials accountable.

In 2020, When We All Vote ran a robust, multifaceted campaign and reached more than 100 million people to educate them about the voting process and get them registered and ready to vote. The initiative also led in voter education, registration, and volunteer engagement and as a result, 512,000 people started or completed the voter registration process, and nearly 500 media, corporate, and nonprofit partners joined its efforts.

Michelle Obama launched When We All Vote in 2018 and is joined by fellow Co-Chairs Stephen Curry, Becky G, Selena Gomez, Tom Hanks, H.E.R., Liza Koshy, Jennifer Lopez, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Janelle Monae, Chris Paul, Megan Rapinoe, Shonda Rhimes, Bretman Rock, Kerry Washington, and Rita Wilson.
