A recent story was posted on uuworld.org about Unitarian Universalists (UUs) across the country running for political office. These candidates, in Kentucky, Florida, Louisiana, Oregon, Texas, Wisconsin, and Maine, offer interesting insights into the intersection of faith, politics, and the campaign trail.
At a critical juncture in our country’s history, UUs across the country are finding many ways to have a positive impact on our future. While most UUs will not run for office, there are other ways UUs and UU congregations can engage in this election. Your congregation can help get out the vote, support or oppose ballot measures, and register voters. The UUA has many resources that can help your congregation engage in those actions in ways that do not violate IRS guidelines.
Happy election season!
