Take Action to Combat Voter Suppression

Share this

This summer at General Assembly, we passed the Stop Voter Suppression and Partner for Voting Rights and a Multiracial Democracy Action of Immediate Witness. Together we affirmed our commitment to deepen our faith’s democracy work, calling on us to “engage nationally with UU actors (campaigns such as UU the Vote and organizations such as Unitarian Universalists for Social Justice) to deepen our theological grounding in issues of democracy. Take action with these actors and those of interfaith and secular partners.”

Together, with our neighbors and communities, we can build the power we need to confront injustice and oppression and build a world where interdependence and democracy are embodied in our relationships and institutions. The For the People Act, John Lewis Voting Rights Act, and D.C. Statehood, are critical bills that will begin to address voter suppression and the systemic exclusion of Black, Indigenous, and people of color from voting.

RSVP Today!

Take action by joining the Faith in Democracy Forum with UU the Vote, UUs for Social Justice and Public Citizen. Leaders from each group will discuss our roles in building a multiracial democracy and invite you to take collective action. On July 22, learn how you can take action to pass these bills and begin organizing around the Stop Voter Suppression and Partner for Voting Rights and a Multiracial Democracy AIW.

As President Biden said on July 13, “We’re facing the most significant test of our democracy since the Civil War.” “We have the means, we just need the will. The will to save and strengthen our democracy.”

In faith and solidarity,
