Act to ensure dignity & justice for all with the August Recess Toolkit!

During August recess Members of Congress return to their home states and many will campaign for re-election. All candidates for office will be holding campaign events and meeting with voters. This presents a great opportunity to connect with your elected officials and candidates by asking questions and sharing your personal concerns and hopes about your community and our nation.

Now is also the time to get ready for election day. Make plans to engage with your community through conversation and prayer around our role as U.S. residents and as faithful citizens in ensuring our election systems promote dignity and respect for all. August is a critical time for local action to help ensure all citizens are guaranteed the right to vote.

Check out our August action toolkit below to learn exactly how you can take action to ensure dignity and justice for all this month!
