Protecting Our Democracy in 2022

Protecting Our Democracy in 2022

We believe that as voters we have the ability to choose the elected leaders who represent us. When it comes to elections, we want a transparent process we can trust, where Americans have equal freedom to vote regardless of our identity, where we live, or how we worship.

But today, a handful of politicians have put up barriers to silence our voices.

Interfaith Power & Light’s Faithful Voter Reflection Guide states that “voting is the very foundation of representative democracy….but this most basic right has been undermined by courts and politicians who make it harder for citizens to participate in the political process. Those who erect obstacles to voting are violating one of our most sacred values and damaging our democracy.”

Join CJM's co-executive director Avery Davis Lamb for a discussion with Rev. Adam Russell Taylor, the President of Sojourners, and our affiliate leaders from Georgia, Michigan, and Texas, to discuss what’s at stake and why people of faith and conscience and our faith communities are uniquely positioned to protect our democracy.

Our time together will inspire and equip you to protect democracy and elections in your community.

Together, we can ensure that every American can safely and freely cast their ballot so that every voice is heard and our elections reflect the will of the people.

IPL’s Faithful Voter Reflection Guide – A Conversation

Every election year is significant, and 2022 is certainly no exception. The outcome will impact our nation’s response to climate change for years to come.

As people of faith and conscience across the country, we believe elections are a referendum on the values that will shape our future. Voting is how we create a society based on our shared values. That’s why Interfaith Power & Light offers a multi-issue Faithful Voter Reflection Guide. Download IPL's Faithful Voter Reflection Guide at https://bit.ly/ipl-guide.

In this June 9, 2022 Interfaith Power & Light webinar, IPL President Susan Hendershot, The Climate Reality Project’s William J. Barber III, NETWORK Lobby for Catholic Social Justice’s Mary Novak, and Georgia Interfaith Power & Light's Gayla Tillman discussed the guide’s key themes and shared how you can use it.

The guide discusses many of the defining moral issues of our time that are on the ballot: faltering democratic institutions, too much wealth in the hands of a few, damage to the climate, cruel immigration policies that tear families apart, mass incarceration that devastates communities of color, and threats to global public health and security.

Whether you use it at the kitchen table, in a house of worship, at a community forum, or at an event with political candidates, we hope it helps you and your community navigate the urgent moral questions facing our nation.
