Reeb Project for Voting Rights

Reeb Voting Rights Project

Make a Difference

We need you – the hundreds of members and friends of All Souls, who have powered us over the past seven years – to mobilize and equip voters with the information they need to ensure their votes count and their voices are heard.

Join us as we work in solidarity with other UU congregations and progressive partner organizations that center the leadership of people of color, work in communities with historically low voter participation, and advocate for changes to oppressive voting laws.

We are united through love in action.

What You Can Do

If there was ever an “all hands on deck” moment for our nation, this is it. And the All Souls Church Reeb Project for Voting Rights has risen to the occasion!

Join us once again to make a difference.  Just like we made a difference in the Presidential election!

About

The Reeb Project for Voting Rights is dedicated to increasing voter participation. We work in solidarity with other UU congregations and progressive partner organizations that center the leadership of people of color, work in communities with historically low voter participation, and advocate for changes to oppressive voting laws. Since our launch in 2013 (at the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington), we have called, met, registered, and mobilized thousands of voters in Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. We also support full representation and voting rights for the District of Columbia.

The Reeb Project is named in honor of former All Souls associate minister James Reeb – beaten to death in 1965 when he went to Selma, Alabama, to march for voting rights. The project has four goals:

  • Have impact on the national discussion on voting rights by leveraging our unique history, DC location, and influence within Unitarian Universalism.
  • Increase voter turnout in specific communities by working in solidarity with local UU congregations and progressive partner organizations that center the leadership of people of color.
  • Continually raise consciousness of the injustice of our own disenfranchisement as DC residents and seek remedies to this injustice.

Feel free to take a look back at our Fall 2018 Reeb Project Report.
