Pittsburgh locals hold up their “When We All Vote” signs and cheer as actor Tom Hanks leaves the stage after delivering an empowering speech. Hanks touched on the importance of participating in our democracy. Students from surrounding Pittsburgh universities came out to see Hanks speak about the importance of voting in the midterm elections, along with other speakers such as Steelers running back James Conner, team executive Jim Rooney and coach Mike Tomlins’ wife, Kiya Tomlin. The “When We All Vote” rally was organized through the University of Pittsburgh.
