POSTPONED-Community Conversation: Voter Education

You are invited to join Rev. Dr. Kearney and Rev. Hill for a Community Conversation on October 22 at 7:00 PM about voter education.

We hear with urgency how important voting is in this moment - how our vote intersects with calls for community and justice in this time for black lives, immigrant lives, and the overall health of our cities and neighborhoods. How do we prepare ourselves for this moment? How do we vote safely during a pandemic? How can we be a part of the effort to make sure our election is free and fair? How can one become a poll worker? What will be on the ballot?

We will have a community conversation together. Join us!
