Join us in Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina, the weekend of October 7–9 to partner with the UU Fellowship of Raleigh and Eno River UU Fellowship in Durham to reach out to voters in the Raleigh/Durham area and make sure they are able to participate in the fall election. With all the rapid changes taking place in the North Carolina rules and procedures, talking directly to voters is critical to avoid the kind of misinformation that can reduce turnout and participation.
We will be hosted locally for the weekend. Because of our desire to respect the travel boycott and avoid spending out of state money in North Carolina, we will only be using homestays and we will not have any hotel rooms. Many thanks to our UUFR/ERUUF partners who are working to organize enough housing for us!
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ALL CURRENT AND FUTURE REGISTRANTS: To encourage more volunteers and provide flexibility for those who are working or going to school, we are organizing two departure times from Harvard Street.
- 1:00 pm (be at church by 12:30 pm) to Raleigh (arriving 7:00 pm)
- 3:00 pm (be at church by 2:30 pm) to Durham (arriving 9:00 pm) - first come, first serve
Please let us know as soon as possible (and no later than Mon., Sep. 26) if you have a preference. The Reeb Project team will assign those with no preference based on bus and housing space. Go here for more information and to register.
Follow this link to make full or partial payments for bus transportation, and to make extra donations to cover other participants' transportation.
Saturday will be a big day of voter registration and walking neighborhoods to talk to voters and share information. Sunday morning we will all worship together and then do one more afternoon shift of work before departing for DC by bus. We will have some options for more stationary activities that do not require extensive walking. We anticipate returning late Sunday evening.
This trip is open to everyone, but there will not be any special activities organized for children or childcare, so please plan accordingly. There will also be a youth contingent; details to come about that.
We will ask for contributions toward the bus cost, but no one will be required to pay to come on the trip.
