National UU the Vote 2024 Launch - March 14th!
Thursday, March 14th from 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM ET We enter the work of UU the Vote 2024 grounded in the current political and spiritual conditions of our faith and national community. The work that is needed in 2024 will require us to anchor in our power and connect authentically to mobilize UUs, voters, and our local communities. UU the Vote 2024 is an ambitious strategy to grow a powerful pro-democracy majority. Join Side With Love for the kick-off of UU the Vote 2024, where you’ll learn about the electoral work of State Action Networks (like North Carolina!), their partners in key states, and more!

*** North Carolina UU the Vote Launch Date - Coming Soon!
In 2020 UU the Vote became the largest activation of UUs in the history of our faith. New technology brought us into deeper relationship with our justice partners, and with fellow UUs across the state, and across the country. And we reached out to over three million people. That is the power of our faith. That moment pushed us to interrogate the limits of our imagination for what is possible. What we are capable of.
Last year’s 2022 UU the Vote Campaign, we went even further. Here in North Carolina - 22 UU congregations wrote 34,000 postcards with Reclaim our Vote. We made 36,000 phone calls to voters with Carolina Jews for Justice and the New North Carolina Project.
Finally, we contributed to voter safety, security and joy at the polls through four layers of volunteer opportunities during early voting and election day as, election workers through your local Board of Elections, Vote Protectors through our friends at Democracy NC, You Can Vote Help Desk Volunteers, and Volunteers at a Blueprint NC Safe Sites. In 2024, we ask all UUs in North Carolina to discern how they can contribute to safety, security and joy at the polls!
This spring, we are excited to launch our 2024 North Carolina UU the Vote Campaign. During this critical election cycle, we know that hate and anti-democratic values will be on the ballot in our local, state, and national elections. In order for us to powerfully meet the moment, we'll need to activate more North Carolina UUs than ever before in our history. Stay tuned for more information on how to get involved!
