Our Faith, Our Vote Issue Webinars and One-Pagers

To prepare for the 2020 elections, the United Church of Christ D.C. Office, with the help of ecumenical friends and partners, has been busy working on issue specific resources for you to use and to share with your congregations and communities! We are in the midst of a critical election year, and it is important that we consider some of these major topics and how our faith informs our vote. 

We hope these videos and resources help you learn about these topics vital to the upcoming elections, allow you to view the topic through the lens of your faith, and to guide you to action.
