In March 2022 we launched the Good Trouble Congregation program. Nine months later, over 300 congregations took action with UU the Vote and reached over 2 million voters! The Good Trouble Congregations program is an invitation to stretch ourselves and our communities to resist racist and anti-democratic attacks on our communities and institutions.. It challenges us to build deeper relationships in our congregations, to show up with and for our partners and neighbors, and to take risks, great and small, to #VoteLove and #DefeatHate.
Now it’s time to join together for a national celebration to honor all your amazing work of UU the Vote 2022 and to lift up the amazing work of our congregations.
Join us on February 28 at 7:00pm ET/6pm CT/5pm MT/4pm PT for the Good Trouble Celebration. Come hear from partners, President Susan Frederick-Gray and a special keynote speaker. There will be a special recognition ceremony for congregations as well as folks who served as poll workers and Election Defenders.
Don’t miss this inaugural celebration.
“Speak up, speak out, get in the way. Get in good trouble, necessary trouble, and help redeem the soul of America.” Late Rep. John Lewis’ words call on us to find the moral courage to build democracy and society where all of us can thrive. It calls on us to be uncomfortable, to take risks, to engage our communities and face injustice with prophetic imagination and action.
From phonebanks, talking to neighbors, and showing up at the polls and drop boxes to protect voter access, the stories and activity of this community have been inspiring. On February 28, let us share those stories, celebrate our work, and prepare for the work ahead. Join us on February 28 at 7:00pm ET/6pm CT/5pm MT/4pm PT for the Good Trouble Celebration.
