Our Faith our Vote Resources

These are difficult and challenging times for our local communities, our country, and the world. Divisive and heated rhetoric dominate the public dialogue, and the power of money is shutting out the voice of the average voter. More and more people are withdrawing from engagement in the political process out of a growing sense of cynicism and mistrust. As people of faith, we can play a unique role in this election cycle by encouraging civil, respectful dialogue that builds community and offers a hope-filled vision of the future for all people. The Our Faith, Our Vote campaign helps congregations to participate in the electoral process through faithful, nonpartisan engagement.

Priorities for a Faithful Federal Budget: Acting with Mercy and Justice as One Nation under God

This statement was written and has been endorsed by multiple bodies of faith, including the Alliance of Baptists (Austin, TX, 4/14/12). It is a proposal, founded in scripture and tradition, to national leaders to "act with mercy and justice by serving the common good, robustly funding support for poor and vulnerable people, both at home and abroad, and exercising proper care and keeping of the earth."
