Join the National Call-in to Wisconsin with UUCW and UUTheVote

There’s 5 weeks left before the election and we need your help now.

Please join members of UUCW and other UUs from around the country by phonebanking with UUtheVote on Wednesday, September 30th from 7 to 9 PM ET.  No experience needed.  If you can talk on the phone and attend a zoom meeting, you can do this!

We will be calling mostly people who may not be registered to vote in LatinX and Black communities in northern Wisconsin, one of the swing states.  All you need is a phone plus a desktop or laptop computer and the desire to empower someone with information they need in order to vote.  Training and support is provided by UU volunteers via zoom.

Here’s where to sign up 

Once you’re signed up, you will receive an email confirmation with a link to the zoom meeting to join on September 30th at 7 PM ET for phonebanking together.

Put your faith into action!  Fight voter suppression and systemic racism!  Protect our democracy by involving more people in the voting process! 

Have questions or want more information?   Read these FAQs that include the script and instructions for the Thru Talk Dialer system we’ll be using for making calls.   Contact Ruth or Beth at with additional questions or concerns.
