Nurturing Connections: Working for Democracy With Other UUs

This past year over 120 members of UUC participated in some way with UUtheVote, an initiative of the Unitarian Universalist Association to promote civic engagement and voter participation nationwide.

Early in our involvement, UUC members requested an opportunity to support UUs and citizens generally in some other state where voter suppression has been particularly problematic. Steve Carlson, who led the UUtheVote effort for UUC, reached out to UU minister Reverend Lisa Garcia-Sampson of North Carolina who was leading the effort in that state. A wonderful connection was made, including some 13 weeks of phone-banking together with other UUs, and record-breaking voter participation in North Carolina.
