UU the VOTE
UU the Vote is a non-partisan faith initiative, in partnership with broader justice movements, to engage our neighbors, educate our communities, mobilize voters, and rally around key ballot initiatives.
In collaboration with other nonpartisan organizations, UUs from across the country are making non-partisan calls to reach out to voters in Georgia to make sure they have the information they need to cast their ballot safely and overcome any attempt at voter suppression. UU the Vote has national phonebanking days of actions. Go to www.uuthevote.org/phone-banking/ .
