Get Out The Vote

Interfaith Get Out the Vote Volunteer Opportunities

Sharon Pedersen, MUUSJN Interfaith GOTV Campaign Manager:

The Michigan UU Social Justice Network (MUUSJN) invites people of faith to make a difference in the 2020 election by volunteering in the Michigan Interfaith Get Out the Vote Campaign. The Network has gotten three grants, commitments from activists from 16 UU congregations and has hired a campaign manager and two campaign organizers. The campaign is working in partnership with the Restaurant Opportunity Centers - Michigan, with the All Voting is Local campaign and with other faith groups such as the United Church of Christ and the National Council of Jewish Women and Inclusive Justice. Our campaign is outreaching to people of color, people from LGBTQ+ communities, women, young voters and returning citizens.

Volunteers can attend zoom phone bank training on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Tuesdays from 6:30 - 9 p.m. and learn and do text and phone banking every Thursday and Saturday from 6:30 - 9 p.m. These will be a lot of fun and a chance to meet people around the state. Tuesday training sessions will alternate with town hall meetings on issues that will interest the broader community. Upcoming events include:

October 13: FIGHTING FOR ONE FAIR WAGE & EARNED PAID LEAVE. Guest speakers from One Fair Wage and Earned Paid Leave campaigns.

October 27: RACIAL & ECONOMIC JUSTICE. What We Stand to Gain or Lose with this Election.
