3-6pm: Phonebank with UUJMCA & Reclaim Our Vote
Want to call the people you wrote your postcards to? Reclaim Our Vote and the UU Justice Ministry of California are phoning every Sunday afternoon to reach those potential voters in states like Georgia, Arizona, Wisconsin, and Texas, where voter suppression is really outrageous. Join California’s amazing State Action Network director, Rev. Ranwa Hammanany, who will train your skills and uplift your spirits!
THESE CALLS ARE WORKING… The early voting turnout, and requests for absentee ballots, is VASTLY higher this year than ever before especially in the areas we are calling, among younger voters and BIPOC communities that still face egregious voter suppression. Did you know that folks in Mississippi are being given exactly 5 minutes only in the voting booth before they’re forced to move along? Did you know that polling places in Georgia have lacked cables for their machines… and sometimes lacked the ballot machines completely… so voters show up to a location where they cannot vote? Did you know that in Texas, they’ve made a rule that some counties have only ONE polling place…. and that some Texas counties are the size of Rhode Island? Watch the film SUPPRESSED for more shockers (well, shocking if you are used to free, fair, efficient, and competent election management in most of Minnesota)… fighting voter suppression IS the work of our church… and our beloved allies.
