A Revival For Change: Faithful Democracy Week of Action is an effort to amplify the urgency of this critical moment to protect our democracy and voting rights and ensure that the Senate passes the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. The goal of this week of action is to restore hope and ignite a revival of faith in our communities as we continue to push for the passage of critical legislation that counteract voter suppression laws across the country.
Schedule of events!
Monday, December 6Calling in for Democracy Day
Call your senators today and urge them to pass the Freedom to Vote Act before leaving for recess. Congress must pass the Freedom to Vote Act, landmark legislation that will protect our right to vote, ending partisan gerrymandering, and decreasing the power of big moneyed special interests. If we are ever going to see progress on the issues we care about, we must have a democracy that responds to the needs and priorities of voters – not wealthy donors and corporate interests.
You can reach your Senators at 1-888-885-1748.

Thursday, December 9Day of Prayer and Fasting for Democracy!
Join people of faith in a day of prayer and fasting for federal law-makers to pass legislation that protects voting rights and our democracy.
