RSJI: VOTER ENGAGEMENT

As Reform Jews, we believe democracy is strongest when everyone participates – and it suffers when citizens are denied access to the voting process. We encourage all Georgians to exercise their right to vote and we will be working to make the process easier.

UPCOMING EVENTS & VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
July volunteer opportunities in civic and voter engagement, including voter registration, voter protection, and redistricting.
In the lead-up to municipal elections this fall – and statewide elections in 2022 – every effort matters.
 
  • Represent Georgia (candidate training):
    • Your community needs you! Ready to Run orientations are for people thinking about running in 2021, 2022 or beyond. Learn about initial steps to consider when running for office, the election calendar, rules and forms, basic campaign finance/fundraising, and resources and tools available. Virtual one-hour orientation plus a 30-minute one-on-one Q&A on Wednesday, July 14, 7:00-8:30 pm (hosted by the New Georgia Project); Thursday, July 22, 7:00-8:30 pm (LatinX Edition TBA); Saturday, July 31, 10:00-11:30 am (hosted by the DeKalb Chapter of the NAACP); Sunday, August 1, 7:00-8:30 pm.
  • Fair Districts Georgia (redistricting):
    • The nonpartisan organization Fair Districts Georgia is providing sets of 34 postcards to be written to members of the Georgia House and Senate Redistricting Committees, to let them know we are watching and expect fairness and transparency in redistricting. Cards from outside metro Atlanta are especially important. For more info, contact pamwoodley@comcast.net.
  • Peanut Gallery (joint project of ACLU of GA, All Voting is Local, and New Georgia Project):
    • Join the Peanut Gallery to monitor and report on monthly meetings of boards of elections in your own county, where every decision affects ballot access. Sign up for training: https://georgiapeanutgallery.org/trainings; volunteers especially needed outside metro Atlanta.
  • VoteRiders (assistance with voter IDs):
  • Fair Fight Action’s GeorgiaVoterSearch.com lets voters verify whether they are on the list of the more than 100,000 voters whose registration could be canceled because they have moved or haven’t voted in several years. Check your registration!
