Challenge for your House of Worship -- Take the "Righteous Voter Pledge"
Updated: Sep 8, 2020
A voting pledge sponsored by the global interfaith climate justice organization, GreenFaith, and endorsed by RAICA:
Because the Earth and all people are sacred and at risk, GreenFaith is building a global, multi-faith climate and environmental movement. Together our members create communities to transform ourselves, our spiritual institutions, and society to protect the planet and create a compassionate, loving and just world.
Throughout the Covid pandemic, members of the GreenFaith community have been looking out for each other and fostering communities of care and resilience. It has been a challenging five months for sure, but because we are fueled by love, compassion, and the pursuit of justice, we aren’t slowing down and we will never give up. How can we? We are less than 70 days away from an election. Now is the time to dig deeper, to care more, and to show up for ourselves and for others.
Please join us by signing the Righteous Voter Pledge.
If you want to do even more - This fall, GreenFaith will be running the Righteous Voter Campaign. We are asking members of the GreenFaith community to sign the pledge and to become Moral Observers - a network of people of faith across the country trained to document instances of voter suppression and/or intimidation.
You may join Greenfaith’s campaign kickoff call on September 2nd to learn more about how you can get trained and get others involved. For more general information, go to greenfaith.org ~ ~ ~
