Social Justice Get Out the Vote Campaign

September 24 @ 10:30 am-12:30 pm

Opportunities to Help Get Out the Vote

Come have some fun, sociability and great munchies while working to further justice and strengthen our democracy. We have a letter writing campaign in conjunction with the UUA and Vote Forward to turn out as many voters in the November elections as possible. To date we have written almost 500 letters. Can we make it to 1000 by the end of Oct.? Maybe we can with your help.

The letters are mostly prepared. You simply write a small note in addition to the prepared letter about why you vote and sign your first name. We provide the letters, the names of the persons to whom the letters go, and the envelopes.  We have some stamps or you can provide your own.

Can you take home 10 letters, fill them out sometime before October 24 and return them to the Social Justice box in the Parlor?
OR
Can you put a book of stamps in the collection plate for the offering?
OR

Can you join us in the Parish Hall on any of the following dates for a sociable hour of letter writing?

Monday, October 3        10:00-11:00 a.m.
Saturday, October 15     10:30 – 11:30 a.m.
Monday, October 24        7:00 – 8:00 p.m.

ou add a small personal note as to why you vote. We will also provide envelopes and stamps.

Think you can’t attend but would still like to help? There are other ways to participate. One is to buy a book of stamps and put it in the  collection plate  on any Sunday between now and October 23. Another is to take the letters home, write them at your own convenience, and return them to us. We will be sending all the letters at one time at the end of October.

If you have questions and would like more information, please contact either Deanne  Bonnar or Dody Adkins-Perry or any member of the Social Justice Team. You can also send an email to sjteam@uumiddleboro.org.  We hope to see you at one or all of the sessions. Together we can make a difference.
