Bring Justice to the Senate

Get involved: Click here for detailed, step-by-step instruction from Protect the Results about the best way to make an impact in the Georgia Senate race. Also, our voter reform group did incredible work for the general election, mailing over 30,000 postcards to voters in swing states and engaging in robust phone and texting banks. Our focus now turns to the January Senate elections in Georgia. Want to help? Email votingproject@middlechurch.org and join us!

Voting rights and faith are inextricably intertwined. At the heart of our democratic contract is a spiritual principle: Every person is made in the image of God, and should therefore have equal say in determining how they are governed. Obviously, our country has a poor track record of living up to this ideal—to put it mildly. From the legal disenfranchisement of enslaved people, women, indigenous people and other groups to voter suppression's long and insidious reach, we have yet to witness the full expression of God's democratic dream. But, we are in the throes of the most dangerous racist assault on voting rights since Jim Crow. Sadly, our nation offers fewer voting protections now than it did in 1965.

At Middle, we know that fighting against voter suppression—and helping ensure that everyone has voice and vote—is God's work. We are appalled by the racist attempts to disenfranchise voters of color, and embrace fighting this scourge as part our congregation's antiracism work. Particularly at this crucial juncture, this divine call could not be more pressing.
