UU the Vote

Published by FirstUUAdmin on

Sunday, January 12 – 2:30 pm

In moments of moral crisis, Unitarian Universalists know we are called to show up. And 2020 is one of those moments. If we are to survive—as a human species broadly and as a UU religious community specifically—we are called to speak with moral courage and act with prophetic clarity, making our lives and our actions an embodied example of the relevance and saving power of our values and our faith communities.

As fascism and white nationalism rise both domestically and around the globe, and as corporations barrel the planet toward irreversible climate collapse, the stakes are incredibly high. Luckily, Unitarian Universalists are rooted in a theology of human worth and dignity, interdependence and agency as well as a legacy that prepares us for moments such as these.

This year, UUs will continue our justice ministries focused on the issues that matter most to each of us. And we will bring our passions to the polls. We will UU the Vote for trans lives. We will UU the Vote to confront white supremacy. We will UU the Vote for the future of the planet, for migrant justice, for reproductive rights, and more.

Not all of us can vote, but all of us can be part of organizing. In this political moment, we can powerfully show what’s possible when we move together as determined faith communities in relationship with movements for justice.
