Coming together across generations for voter education in Detroit!

Last weekend Fellowship Chapel, UCC in Detroit, Michigan held their first Our Faith Our Vote “Voter Education” session. It was a huge success! Here’s the update from Our Faith Our Vote captain, Yvette McElroy Anderson –

“We had over 75 participants and a number of young people, age 18-25. Our presenter was our own John Johnson, Esq. It was an engaging session and we are working with all generations to ensure we grow the next generation of civic and social activism. We are excited and will be offering additional presentations at other voter educational events.”

They put together a great resource for their participants, which breaks down what’s at stake in their federal, state, and local elections. You should download the whole thing, but here’s a sample:

What a cool and helpful resource. This is totally something you could do in your own congregation.

Thanks for the inspiration, Fellowship Chapel!
