UU the Vote 

Program date: June 30, 2024

The “UU the Vote” initiative, led by the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA), has been actively organizing to address key issues affecting the LGBTQIA+ community in the 2024 election cycle. This campaign, which has been ongoing since its first major push in 2020, aims to mobilize voters and advocate for democracy and justice on multiple fronts, including LGBTQIA+ rights.

In 2024, UU the Vote is significantly ramping up its efforts, planning to recruit over 10,000 volunteers from 500 congregations to reach out to 3 million voters across the United States. The initiative is focusing particularly on key states such as Arizona, Colorado, Florida, and Georgia, among others. These efforts include supporting ballot initiatives that are crucial for reproductive justice and ranked-choice voting, as well as continuing partnerships with groups that focus on anti-racism and LGBTQIA+ rights.

The initiative emphasizes the importance of democracy as a core Unitarian Universalist value, viewing electoral participation and justice as vital expressions of their faith. UU the Vote also offers a variety of resources and events designed to educate and empower volunteers and voters, aiming to foster a broad coalition capable of pushing for progressive changes in the U.S. political landscape.

For more detailed information on how to get involved with UU the Vote, their strategies for 2024, and their focus on issues affecting the LGBTQIA+ community, you can visit their official site at UU the Vote and the UUA’s news releases on their official page.
