Civics Education -- Equality Arizona
Because many school districts across Arizona and the U.S. do not include civics education in school curricula, young people do not know how government works and how important their participation in it is. Faith communities can fill this gap. Michael Soto, executive director, is willing to provide webinars for UCC leaders to be able to educate their congregations.
There is an smart phone app, OutVote, for friends to encourage friends to vote. Friends that get reminders are twice as likely to vote. Outvote makes it easy to remind your friends to register and vote.
Transportation to Polls
Many older congregation and community members want to vote, but need help getting to polls. Does your church offer transportation assistance to polls? Please email Wende to be included in a list for this purpose.
