#UUtheVOTE with Active Voices

Last, but not least: DO YOUR CENSUS and GET READY TO VOTE.  Were you SO PROUD of our Wisconsin neighbors who voted from home or stood for hours in the sleet to cast a ballot last Tuesday? Can you take a minute to resist future acts of flagrant voter suppression? Here’s how! 

MUUSJA thanks the Active Voices Team from First Unitarian Society of Minneapolis for helping us all move our progressive values forward and #UUtheVote. New issues each week, same document link, so be sure to check back. Also, please RSVP here or contact them directly if you want to recommend an Action Item. The current advocacy recommendations are here:
