Our Faith Our Vote 2014

June 5, 2014 – Watch Recording

The first Just Practice webinar focused on how members and congregations can be engaged in electoral politics.  Together we explored a number of questions, including:

  • Why we are involved in electoral politics and what is our unique voice as communities of faith?
  • Our Faith Our Vote, a UCC campaign to assist congregations and members to be faithfully engaged in the electoral process.
  • Election rules as they apply to congregations – what we can and can’t do.
  • What is the Voting Rights Amendment Act?  Why is it important for our right to vote and how can we support it.
  • Role of “big” money in campaigns - Why this is an important issue and what we can do about it.
  • Your questions and concerns
