Join UUCivs’ Congregation-Wide Call to Action

Advance Social Justice and UU Values Through the Ballot Box!

 

ACTION ALERT
Join the UUCivs Congregation-wide Town Hall, July 8, 7 pm: RSVP here."

 Join UUCivs in pledging…

  1. To VOTE on August 4 and November 3 (and vote absentee).
  2. To help at least two friends/family/neighbors/folks VOTE. 

We make it easy: check out our Voting Toolkit and Voting Helpline.

 

Then join us to EXPAND THE VOTE beyond UUAA. UUCivs is organizing with other community groups to...

  1. Help marginalized communities get their vote: the formerly incarcerated, and other local populations who face structural barriers to registering and voting. 
  2. Mobilize a Young People’s Election Engagement team – to participate as poll workers and aid with other organizations to mobilize the vote. 
  3. Advocate for legislation that helps clerks count ALL the ballots they receive.

NEED more inspiration?

Did you know that 95% of Michigan residents are already registered to vote but only 50% vote? How do we get those other 45% to know that their voice matters? And how do we help them get ready to vote absentee so that they can vote safely? Come help! 

 

Learn more about UUCivs… 

We are a three-year-old UUAA member-led effort, renamed in 2019 as “UUCivs” - short for “UUAA’s Civic Engagement Team”.  We are closely aligned with the national #UUtheVote and Michigan’s MUUSJN GOTV (“Get Out The Vote”) efforts. 

Our team is led by Carrie Hatcher-Kay with dedicated members leading each of the unique initiatives within UUCivs.
