Our Vision & Purpose
As in the Civil Rights Movement, churches are critical for ensuring the right to vote.
Sojourners, Skinner Leadership Institute, and the National African American Clergy Network are partnering to defend the right to vote and to combat voter suppression tactics that compromise the vision and the values of our democracy. Through this effort we will be educating and equipping African American Clergy with the needed tools and resources to protect members of their communities from unjust efforts that prevent eligible voters from exercising their right to vote.
Our faith teaches us that all people are created in the image of God. Protecting the right to vote affirms the divine imprint and inheritance of all God’s children.
Dr. Barbara Williams-Skinner
We have a clear Christian mandate to ensure that society’s most vulnerable can exercise the right to vote.
Rev. Jim Wallis

The image of God must not be diminished in any of God’s children through voter suppression or intimidation.
Police shootings of unarmed black and brown people will not end unless you vote.
The rise of white supremacy and white privilege stops when we vote for leaders of high moral conscience.
You have the freedom to vote! Protect it.
African Americans and other minority groups STILL face oppression and discrimination.
