The American Ethical Union has joined the Center for Common Ground’s Reclaim Our Vote (ROV) campaign as a national partner. ROV is a non-partisan effort aimed at re-registering persons of color who have been removed from voter rolls in states with a history of voter suppression. ROV also works to inform still-registered voters about new voting rules and restrictions that have been enacted, especially related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Many Ethical Societies have already signed up for the campaign and more are on the way! Our volunteers are handwriting and mailing thousands of postcards to our fellow citizens in these states, whose addresses are being provided by the campaign’s partners at the NAACP.
We would appreciate your help with this project. If you would like to volunteer, contact Bart Worden (firstname.lastname@example.org) and he will connect you with a campaign coordinator.
You can also support the campaign financially – after all of the postage and handling, each postcard costs $.40 – $.50 to get from idea to mailbox. Since we are sending thousands of postcards that expense can add up for our volunteers! If you would like to contribute, here’s an online form to make it easy:
