Learn & Vote

As members of the ACT NOW with RU Initiative, we recognize that no level of government is more directly responsible for serving our community than our local elected officials. These officials and the decisions they make impact nearly every aspect of our daily lives… including our education system, public safety, law enforcement practices, housing, transportation and more. 

 

By voting in local elections and holding our officials accountable, we can help create the change we want to see in our country and specifically in our local communities. This is particularly important when we reflect on the absence of equality and consideration given to our African American brothers and sisters and the impact of systemic racism. 

For example, we know that our elected judges and prosecutors are responsible for the decisions made within our legal system. There is documented evidence that these decisions are historically harsher for people of color and perpetrate the underpinnings of racism often connected to poverty, absence of opportunity and education.

As a part of our ACT NOW Initiative we are encouraging our community to take action. Use your power to influence change by voting in this election and in the General Election in November.
