Monthly Call To Action – September (Part 1)
“Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.”- Arthur Ashe
Live our UU 5th Principle by helping to turn out the vote for this month’s Recall Special Election. Here are a few ideas:
(1) If you have voting-age children/other loved ones – ask them if they have returned their ballot. If they haven’t, help them make a plan to do so;
(2) If you use social media, post about turning in your ballot and offer reliable sources for voting information, such as the San Diego County Registrar of Voters – https://www.sdvote.com/ and/or the California Secretary of State – https://www.sos.ca.gov/elections/upcoming-elections/2021-ca-gov-recall;
(3) Communicate via talk/text/telephone with friends, neighbors, groups you belong to about the importance of voting in the recall election and returning their ballot now. Offer to help them make a plan to vote. If they’ve already voted, thank and/or compliment them.
Monthly Call To Action – September (Part 2)
The American Dream and Promise Act of 2021 (HR 6) would provide permanent legal protections and a pathway to citizenship for DACA and TPS recipients. Affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person by calling your US Senators and asking them to support this legislation. (The House passed HR 6 and it has now moved to the Senate for consideration). Sample call script: “Hi. My name is [NAME] and I am a constituent from [CITY, ZIP CODE]. I am calling to ask Senator [NAME] to support HR 6, The American Dream and Promise Act.. Thank you.” Senator Alex Padilla (202)224-3553/(619)239-3884; Senator Dianne Feinstein (202)224-3841/(619)231-9712.
