Every Voice, Every Vote: Take Action

Thes are troubled times. The threats to our democracy and our rights are pervasive. As Revorm Jews, we are called to act.

We are responding with others in the Reform Movement by participating in the  non-partisan 2022 Every Voice, Every Vote Campaign.

The campaign will focus on reaching out to voters of color in states with a history of voter suppression and barriers to voting that disproportionately affect minority votes. 

As in 2020, the campaign will partner with the Center for Common Ground* in their “Reclaim Our Vote” actions. These include reaching out to disenfranchised voters with postcards, phone calls and texts to encourage and support participation in voting. 

We will be having opportunities for training and group post card writing.

Email SAC@bethisrael-pdx.org to get involved, or click to order post cards.

The Center for Common Ground is a non-partisan BIPOC led voting rights organization. Their mission is to empower under-represented voters to participate fully in democracy. They have proven success in achieving the goals of their mission
