“Souls to the Polls” Forum

Details

Date:
August 16
Time:
11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Presiding Bishop Michael Curry has proclaimed that “it is a Christian obligation to vote, and more than that, it is the church’s responsibility to help get souls to the polls.” A group of St. John’s parishioners is taking this to heart. We are forming an effort in St. John’s to send postcards, call, and text under-represented voters to encourage them to register and vote. We are working through Reclaim Our Vote, a nonprofit, nonpartisan 501(c)3 organization with partners including the NAACP, Black Votes Matter, Mi Familia Vota, and others, that does not support any particular party or candidates.

We will launch this campaign in an adult forum on August 16 and follow with a postcard-writing social during the forum hour on August 23. Sign up to write cards here. All are welcome!
