Nitzavim: RAC's Voter Protection and Particpation Project

Thu, 08/18/2016 - 5:17pm -- Rodef Sholom


The Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism is launching a new initiative on August 18 aimed at Voter Protection and Participation called Nitzavim!
From August to November, the Reform Jewish Movement will be partnering with the NAACP, the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law and the PICO National Network to protect the right to vote this election year.

Why are we launching Nitzavim on August 18?  Because it is Tu B'av, the Jewish holiday celebrating love. Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. taught us, "darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that." In 2016, we are called to drive out the darkness of racial inequality by protecting the right to vote.  Click here to learn more and how you can help.
