The presidential election season is in full swing, and we at the Unitarian Universalist Legislative Ministry of NJ want to give congregations the tools they need to ensure that our 5th UU principle, “the right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large” is ready come November!
Planned Parenthood Action Fund of NJ and the League of Women Voters are teaming up to bring UU leaders an opportunity to learn how to run voter registration drives at their congregations this Fall. This training will discuss NJ voter laws, materials, and how to conduct voter registration drives that fall within 501c3 guidelines and are non-partisan. Voting is one of the most important ways to access the political process and our elected officials make important decisions that can impact our future. Ensure your congregation’s members’ voices are heard and they are represented this election by learning how to organize a voter registration drive at your congregation.
Why learn to organize a voter registration drive at your congregation?
- 60% of people living at or below the Federal Poverty Level are not registered to vote.
- Low-income residents, minorities, and women are disenfranchised and underrepresented in elections.
- There is a growing gap between those who do and don’t vote, which threatens the democratic process.
Join us at the Unitarian Society in East Brunswick on Thursday, September 8 at 7:00 p.m. for this free workshop and put our faith into action!
