America has spoken, loud and clear. They want Harriet Tubman to be the face of our $20 bill.

Right now, our currency is very male and very white. A grassroots campaign called Women on 20s hopes to change that, and started an online petition to replace Andrew Jackson on the twenty.

Women on 20s held two rounds of voting. After the first round, there were four finalists: Tubman, Wilma Mankiller, Eleanor Roosevelt and Rosa Parks. All extraordinary women, not just in their time, but in history.

In the end: Harriet Tubman won with 118,328 votes. Second place was Roosevelt with 111,227.

What does it all mean?

It doesn’t take an “Act of Congress” – it just requires the Secretary of the Treasury to make the change.

That man is Jack Lew, appointed by President Obama, and confirmed by the Senate in 2013.

Women on 20s hopes the more than 600,000 voters in the online campaign will convince the President to use his influence and make it happen.

After years of research and a series of unpleasant experiences concerning the current child protection services system, Alec Cope decided to combat the cancerous corruption through information. Freelance writing articles as a form of protest and distributing them throughout his former high-school and local area, Alec struck special chords with whomever he was in contact with.

Alec has been involved in activism such as sit down protests as well as Idle No More gatherings. Being independent for the majority of his time, Alec became a member of the WeAreChange family to assist one of the organizations that inspired him to become active in the first place. With a larger platform and positive support Alec has committed the majority of his time to research, writing, and maintaining social media with the goal to continue expanding the awakening sweeping throughout all levels of society.

Growing up within a rural area in Northern Michigan as well as being a native American descendant, Alec is seeking to expose environmental abuse in his state as well as globally. A high-school dropout, Alec chases his passion for writing and empowering individuals while showing any isolated person that they too can overcome the odds with a community that will support them. Alec lives in the lower peninsula of Michigan near Kalamazoo.
