I am only one—But still, I am one.
I cannot do everything, But still, I can do something.
And because I cannot do everything I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.
– Edward Everett Hale
We all lead busy lives.
There is never enough time to get done all that we need to do.
Time is that precious commodity we never have enough of.
There is a pivotal election coming up.
We care deeply about our progressive social justice causes. We care deeply about preserving our democracy.
Our aim is to reach out to as many people as possible to educate and encourage them to vote.
Please join us.

What can you do right now?
Voting is one of the most important tools we have to further the values we believe in. Let us put into action the 5th Principle affirmed by Unitarian Universalist congregations: “The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large”.
