Take Action today by Making your Plan to Vote
This October, our action alert focuses on getting out the vote. This year more than any prior election it is critical that you have a plan to vote. Whether you are voting early, voting absentee/mail in or in person on election day, we encourage you to make that plan today. Additionally, voter registration deadlines are quickly approaching. If you have not yet, check your voter registration status here.
Throughout October, we will be collecting stories from our faith community on why you are voting this year. This will be part of a blog series, as well as posted to our social media accounts to help uplift the many important reasons for participating in this year's election. You can see staff reasons here and sign up to participate here.
We encourage you to tell us how you'll be voting (in person, mail in, early), and why being a #FaithClimateVoter matters to you. Share a picture on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram in your favorite outdoor space, and tag #CreationJustice and #VoteReady to participate. We'll share all the ones we see!
