Community of Action Invites You to Act!
CIVIC ENGAGEMENT SUMMER 2020 CAMPAIGN
WRITE THE COUNTY COUNCIL
to Fund New Construction
for South Lake NOW
Does your child’s school look like this?
We are asking congregants to email personal letters to their county council representatives. These letters do have an impact and will be important for council members to receive before their August 24 special session. Find your county council member here.
What to Write: Tell YOUR council member about YOUR connection (or your congregation’s connection) to South Lake, mention anything you have done to help the school and let them know why funding a new building is important to YOU. If you believe strongly in equity in education, stress that they should fund on this basis.
COMBAT VOTER SUPPRESSION
IN VOTING RESTRICTIVE STATES
We are participating in the Reclaim Our Vote campaign (through the Reform Movement’s Religious Action Center). This is a well-coordinated, proven to be effective POSTCARD writing campaign to help RE-REGISTER millions of voters from communities of color who have become DE-REGISTERED (for example, voters moved off voting rolls because they have not voted in a particular number of consecutive elections).
We are distributing Toolkits of 30 Postcards Each.
Get your toolkit delivered to you at home, complete with instructions and stamps. You will not be on your own: you will be trained by video and we will follow up with you.
Watch this video to learn more and then click on this sign up to order postcards or to get more information! (Please don’t post this video on social media).
MARYLAND VOTER REGISTRATION DRIVES
This summer we will be working to get out information about voter registration and voting by mail to help compensate for the loss of an estimated 2 million new voter registrations per month (nationally) due to closures of the MVA and other government offices.
We will also be participating for the third year in a row in National Voter Registration Day ( September 22).
Contact Sue Wohl to get involved.
Check back here for information about vote by mail for the general election!
