Postcards are Back!
This fall, 20 UU congregations across North Carolina are coming together to write 27,000 Get Out the Vote postcards in partnership with UU Justice NC and Reclaim Our Vote. This is the largest collaborative effort in our state network’s history! Together we will be writing to registered but infrequent voters of color in Cabarrus County, NC with information about early voting for the 2022 mid-term elections.
This project is primarily funded through a joint grant from the UU Funding Program. A very big thank you to the Eno River UU Fellowship in Durham for serving as the lead grant applicant and the 19 other congregations who signed on as co-applicants. Each participating congregation has been awarded $500 for their UU the Vote postcard writing project, totaling $10,000 of financial support for this work!
Additionally, earlier this year seven congregations worked together to write 7,000 postcards to Union County, NC voters in partnership with our friends at the Munroe Democracy Center. That means, as a state-wide network, we'll be writing 34,000 postcards this year!
Faith in Action Phone Bank!
8-Nights of Phone Banking with the New North Carolina Project Foundation
We’re also excited to team up with Carolina Jews for Justice and the New North Carolina Project Foundation to host 8-straight weeks of non-partisan phone banking on Thursday nights from September 15th through November 3rd (6:30 - 8:30 ET / 3:30 - 5:30 PT). We’ll be empowering and equipping North Carolina voters of color to vote love and defeat hate this fall. Register Here!
Volunteer at the Polls
Finally, we’ll be contributing to voter safety, security and joy at the polls through four layers of volunteer opportunities during early voting and election day.
