This year with UU the Vote has been filled with many victories and challenges. Through it all this community has come together grounded in our purpose to #VoteLove, #DefeatHate and build a multiracial democracy. We are so thankful for this community and for the amazing things we’ve accomplished over the past 3 years. So before the year ends, we wanted all of us to come together one last time to share stories and gratitude, and honor the work that would not have been possible without your commitment to this program. Join us on Friday, December 16, 4-5pm ET, 3-4pm CT, 1-2pm PT for our Farewell Celebration.
As you know, JaZahn Hicks, UU the Vote 2022 Campaign Manager, will be leaving us at the end of the year. Please join us to say a final goodbye and share your appreciation and celebrate his leadership this cycle. Please leave a kind word for JaZahn on the Kudo Board that we will share with him at the event.
In 2022 we were able to contact millions of voters (yes, we are still counting all the data) and show up in a big way for our state and local partners. Some congregations did extraordinary work and took on the challenge to become a Good Trouble Congregation. We are excited to announce the first round of Good Trouble Congregations. Congratulations to:
Conejo Valley UU Fellowship
UU Community of the Mountains
All Souls UU Church
Boulder Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship
Unitarian Society of New Haven
UU Fellowship of Gainesville

UU Congregation of Frederick

We are working with State Action Networks to compile to the full list. In the new year, we will reach out to all the Good Trouble Congregations to send your awards and gifts and invite you to the virtual celebration. If your congregation took action in the runoff election and would like that activity to count, please complete the Report Form before December 31.
