Faith In Action
The United Church of Christ Washington D.C. office, in partnership with the UCC General Counsel, has created a new video resource for the Our Faith, Our Vote, campaign.
"The UCC Our Faith, Our Vote, Our Voice campaign offers resources to help congregations engage in the electoral process in a nonpartisan way, through voter education, issue education and voter empowerment and mobilization," said Sandy Sorensen, director of the UCC D.C. office.
The video, When Religion and Politics Meet, provides important information for pastors and congregations engaged in the electoral process, to ensure their participation remains non-partisan.
