EAD Director Rev. Dr. Leslie Copeland Tune and leaders from EAD sponsor organizations are joined by #EAD2019 advocates praying at the Capitol Hill office of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's Office in an action supporting legislation enhancing voter access and providing new voter protections. The action was part of #EAD2019's Congressional Advocacy Day and its legislative ask. Click above or here to view the video.
After a full weekend of advocacy education, networking, worship and fellowship, advocates in D.C. caused #GoodTrouble on Capitol Hill in person on Monday, April 8 as part of #EAD2019- calling for protection and expansion of voting rights in the U.S. and support of democratic endeavors across the globe.
We urged Congress to strengthen the voices of all Americans in our democracy, and the voices of human rights defenders around the world by working to eliminate violent conflict and all threats to civic engagement and human dignity.
