Protect the Right To Vote for All People, especially People of Color, who are often the targets of voter suppression.
Below is a list of organizations working to protect the right to vote for all people. Many opportunities exist to become involved:
WIVEC - Wisconsin Interfaith Voter Engagement Campaign Wisconsin Council of Churches (WCC) and Wisconsin Faith Voices for Justice (WFVJ) partner together to engage the interfaith community in the democratic process. They believe that engaging in this work will build increased understanding and stronger ties among different faith communities; increase engagement in the electoral process; and result in a greater understanding by faith communities of the influential role they can play in the public square. https://interfaithvotewi.org/
CUSH Voter Outreach Initiative CUSH is a (local) Kenosha interfaith coalition living their faith and values in pursuit of justice through advocacy, education, and empowerment. Their voter outreach includes opportunities for registering people to vote at August and September community events. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdMlNp-U7Tuunr7Xxkz6EqUNLSMyzoQKJxu NBNeWmWEggN5KQ/viewform
League of Women Voters The league of women voters is a nonpartisan, grassroots organization working to protect and expand voter rights and ensure everyone is represented in our democracy. They empower voters and defend democracy through advocacy, education and litigation, at the local, state and national levels. There is currently no local Kenosha/Racine chapter, but the League is very interested in starting a local organization. Anyone wishing to find out more about becoming involved in Southeast Wisconsin, should connect with firstname.lastname@example.org. https://www.lwv.org
Leaders of Kenosha (LOK) (local) were formed to empower and engage Black Americans and their communities in the way they live, work, and learn so they are able to achieve total excellence. It’s our understanding that LOK has a “take your souls to the polls'' initiative. For more information, connect with Tanya Mclean at https://www.leadersofkenosha.org/
