Interested in taking your OFOV witness to the next level? This year we are making five OFOV grants available in the amount of $2,000 for local organizing efforts to register voters, provide issue education and to encourage voters to go to the polls in November. These efforts should be strictly nonpartisan and focus on key issues of concern in your community.
In the 2014 midterm elections, congregations in Wisconsin and North Carolina used OFOV grants to empower and educate voters about their state’s voting laws. A congregation in California used an OFOV grant to develop voter registration and issue education opportunities to educate voters about a school board ballot initiative. Each setting has its own unique needs and opportunities for engagement. What might you do in your community?
