Jan. 12, 2020: Here we go! Today’s national videoconference/call kicked off the #UUtheVote campaign, with UUA leaders (including Minnesota’s own rockstar UUA Organizing Strategy Director Rev. Ashley Horan!). A link to that presentation will be available soon.
Tomorrow evening, Monday January 13 @ 7pm CST, we kick off #MUUtheVote talking assets, needs, strategies for mobilizing our congregations towards active civic engagement for 2020 and beyond.
Almost everything we care about depends on how we #UUtheVote to count everyone for the #Census, mobilize voters and advocate for leadership that lives out a belief in the inherent worth and dignity of every person, and the interconnected web of which we are a part. Our 5th principle is in the spotlight this year: #ProtectDemocraticProcess
