What is UU the Vote 2020?

https://www.uua.org/justice/vote2020

The Fifth Principle of Unitarian Universalism calls for the right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large.Our religious community must speak with moral courage and act with prophetic clarity and determination in the 2020 electoral cycle.Our UU values of interdependence, democracy, and the inherent worth and dignity of all people are direct antidotes to the fear, bigotry, and inequity that define our world. In this political moment, UUs are called to join forces with all people who want to organize our communities and our nation to #VoteLove and #DefeatHate. Let’s UU the Vote in 2020.

UU the Vote is a collaborative and distributed effort by individual Unitarian Universalists, committees in our congregations, our ministers, State Action Networks, advocacy groups, the national association, Love Resists, Side with Love, and multiple partner organizations representing and organizing frontline communities. It is not about abandoning the justice ministries we’ve been engaged in and switching all our work to working for voting rights and democracy defense. Nor is it only facilitating voter registration drives or get-out-the-vote campaigns. It’s a powerful chance to combine and expand them that’s most effective when done in partnership with community, state, and national justice organizations.
