Rally for Action

Be inspired! Feel empowered! Take action!

Our nation’s history tells the story of a people striving to be more fair and just. It's the story of generations standing up and pushing against the status quo. It’s the story of individuals who believed that all citizens had a responsibility to guide the direction of this fine nation. And it’s the story of a hard-fought-for right that, even today, deserves and requires our attention. That right is the right to vote. 

If you question whether or not your vote matters. If you feel uninspired by parties or persons running for office. If you wonder if it’s worth your time and energy to vote, then please plan to come. Whether you feel passionate or indifferent about this year's elections, come, be inspired and encouraged, and be empowered to participate in ways that are meaningful to you that ensure your voice, along with all of our votes, count.

Guest speakers Rev. Lisa Garcia-Sampson and Jennifer Roberts are eager to share how their organizers are for fired up social justice! 

Rev. Lisa Garcia-Sampson
Executive Director of UU Justice NC, the Unitarian Universalist Justice Ministry of North Carolina.
Rev. Garcia-Sampson will talk about UU The Vote and the 88 North Carolina organizations she is working with through her role as executive director of UU Justice NC.

Jennifer Roberts 
NC co-leader for the Carter Center’s Strengthening Democracy Project, along with former NC Supreme Court Justice Bob Orr. This initiative works with a number of coalition partners to restore faith in established democratic norms and pave the way for fair, safe and secure elections in the coming years. 

In addition to these dynamic speakers, local organizations, including League of Women Voters and Red, Wine & Blue CLT, will share their efforts to promote democracy and to further voting participation. UiC's Social Justice Committee will fill us in on the efforts we have been taking as well. Unity in Community is excited to host this important event – and we want you to come and join us!
