“Women of Faith” Lead the Charge Against White Supremacy on the Ballot, Release Prophetic 2020 Op-ed and Platform

Washington, D.C.– Election Day is almost here, and religious women voters will play a major role in determining the outcome. That is why Faith in Public Life’s Women of Faith Program has united hundreds of women faith leaders around a platform advancing the values that will shape our nation’s future. This election poses a stark moral choice. White supremacy and bigotry are on the ballot.

Rev. Jennifer Butler and a diverse group of national women faith leaders, including Sister Simone Campbell SSS, Bishop Mariann Budde, Lisa Sharon Harper, Linda Sarsour, Valarie Kaur, Stosh Cotler, Shannon Dingle and Blair Imani are leading the charge for women of faith to save American democracy in 2020.

Today, they released an op-ed that highlights what is at stake in the 2020 election and the moral principles that will guide religious women voters. 

Faith in Public Life has also released a 2020 platform signed by over 250 women faith leaders that presents a vision and moral blueprint for a more just and equitable nation. To read the platform and the full list of signers, click here.
