Voting Rights for Communities of Color

Responsive Resolution

We urge Unitarian Universalists to seek insight into problems experienced by communities of color regarding voting. We make this resolution in response to the report by Rev. Sinkford at the second Plenary on our continued need to confront racism. Therefore,

Be it resolved that the delegates to the 2007 General Assembly are charged to work with their congregations on the following:

  • Where possible, to partner in at least one program on issues of race and voting (such as intimidation, felon disenfranchisement, and voter identification requirements) with an engaged non-partisan organization such as the Urban League, the American Civil Liberties Union, the League of Women Voters, or a local community group,
  • To seek opportunities for education and insight through personal interactions with people in communities of color regarding their experiences with voting, and
  • To report key insights to their congregations and to next year's General Assembly.

This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations. Please consider making a donation today.
