Good Trouble – Protecting the Right to Vote


The UCC is taking a strong position on voting rights. “We know democracy can only truly thrive when everyone is able to participate—when each person’s sacred voice is honored. Only with that foundation can we engage in the essential work of building an equitable and inclusive society.”  We are urged to contact our legislators to pass the newly combined and renamed bill, the Freedom to Vote: John R. Lewis Act,l that is in the Senate. You can sign a national UCC petition at https://p2a.co/KmlN6jm.
