Righteous Resistance : Inspiring and Equipping the Church to Protect and Turnout the Vote in the General Election
Our Nation has a long and shameful history of suppressing the costly, blood-bought right to vote. African American voters, Immigrant communities, the elderly, and young people all represent voters who are at risk and are disproportionately disenfranchised.
There is no act that is more central to our democracy than the act of exercising the right to vote. It insists that every person matters. It affirms the image of God in each voter. It prevents a return to the dark days of legalized racial segregation in America.
These times call for effective faith-rooted and faith-inspired broad civic engagement that defends the heart of our democracy! This session explores what is at stake in this next election and how people of faith are organizing to defend our democracy. Now more than ever the church must be focused on protecting the right to vote for all!

Sojourners seeks to inspire hope and to build a movement that will transform individuals, communities, the church, and the world. Sojourners are Christians who follow Jesus, but who also sojourn with others in different faith traditions and all those who are on a spiritual journey. They are evangelicals, Catholics, Pentecostals and Protestants; progressives and conservatives; blacks, whites, Latinos, and Asians; women and men; young and old. They reach into traditional churches but also out to those who can’t fit into them. Together they seek to discover the intersection of faith, politics, and culture. They invite you to join, to connect, and to act. Welcome to the community. https://sojo.net/
