Once again Americans of color are finding new challenges to exercise our right to vote, only this time they are also looking to exclude elderly voters, hispanics and youth of all colors. We must fight this effort with all of our resources. You are encouraged to raise money to assist those in your community that are facing these new challenges, and to support organizations that are on the front line in the legal battles to stop the proliferation of new voting restrictions.

Raise money to assist those who need new forms of ID to vote and donate to ACLU or NAACP LDF.

If we aren't registered we can't vote. Do your share by holding registration drives at your house of worship and take it into the communities you serve. 

Also, make sure your congregations know about the early voting and absentee voting deadlines in your areas.




We are asking all participating houses of worship to:

  • Hold prayer vigils the night of March 16th

  • Hold morning worship on March 17th

  • And, provide rides to the polls from their houses of worship on election day

Money can influence, but only VOTES win elections.
