Second Unitarian has been working with a coalition of groups opposed to the voter ID requirement that will now likely be on Nebraska’s November ballot. We see voter ID requirements as voter suppression and the coalition needs your help!
Civic Nebraska, which is leading the charge against this amendment, is holding phone bank and door canvassing training on August 30 at 6:30 p.m. on Zoom. If you are interested in being a part of educating November voters email Heather Engdahl, Voting Rights Director at Civic Nebraska. You can also email Second Unitarian member Pam Miller-Jenkins for questions and to receive the zoom link.
The Social Justice Committee sees this as an opportunity for Second Unitarian to become a “Good Trouble” congregation by coming together as community in support of voting rights. Becoming a “Good Trouble” congregation is part of the UUA’s UU the Vote program and you can learn more about it here. You can learn more about the coalition’s opposition to Voter ID at nohindrance.org. Stay posted for more news.
