Multifaith Coalition for Civic Engagement
As a result of our long-standing multifaith partnerships, JCRC recently helped launch a new coalition designed to encourage faith communities to play a more active role in encouraging their members to vote and complete their 2020 census. The non-partisan Multifaith Coalition for Civic Engagement will help connect, inspire, and organize people of faith to embrace exercising these critical civic duties
Event, Contact, Resource Submission Forms
The coalition wants to foster a network of faith leaders that can rely on each other and quickly reach out to each other. That is why we have decided to create three “living” databases for events, contact information, and resources through google forms. This is to ensure we are able to keep our information updated in real-time and without any gatekeepers. We ask both coalition members and general community members to regularly submit information to these forms and share them widely.
Event, Contact, Resource Databases
Using Google forms allows us to automatically populate your response to google sheets where our members and other partners can regularly check for new events, contacts, and resources. This is why is it is so important all members continuously submit more information! Below are the links to google sheets to see “live” updates in our coalitions database.
Census Education & Engagement
The last date for the census is fast approaching. The census is important for communities to fill out because a lot of funding and grant opportunities are determined through the census. To build healthier neighborhoods we must fill out the census.
There are great resources for people who want to focus on voter education including common misinformation about who and who can’t vote.
These are resources for people who are called to serve through volunteering.
