We enter now the Samhain season and it is also election season here in the US. Many of us feel as if we are holding our breath until November 3rd. It is easy to assume that never before has an election mattered so much but the reality is, voting has always mattered.
As our Director, Holli Emore, points out: "Religious leaders and their communities can play a crucial role in meeting the unprecedented challenges we face in this election. All of the freedoms that we enjoy as Americans — including our religious freedom — depend on the integrity of our elections. Americans of all faiths and of no faith at all have a stake in ensuring safe, accessible voting and a strong system to receive and count those votes."
Regardless of the result of this election, there will always be work to do to support the lost and fight for the marginalized. Let us use this time to reflect on how we can best be of service in moving our world forward.
