The times are dire, and our democracy is at risk — especially for people of color, poor people, trans people, immigrants, and others on the margins.  Together, we can move out of our comfort zones to not just vote, but also organize!  We’ll train you to talk to Pennsylvania voters to make sure they have what they need to vote  — all you need is a computer with Chrome or Safari, a phone, and a smile.

Testimony from the Rev. Cathy Rion Starr:

I experience phone-banking as an act of faith — of that sacred connection between human beings in service of our values.  It is a place to treat people who I don’t know and will never meet or talk to again with dignity and respect — whether they don’t want to talk, or they’re the widow of the person who I’m trying to find who died 2 years ago, or they’re a Trump supporter, or those few precious conversations where someone really wants to engage and be listened to about their life and this country and this election. Each conversation and connection is a chance to practice the sacred covenant of connection and relationship that extends far beyond our congregational communities. Please join us on October 25th.
