Use Your Voice: All About Voting

Sunday, October 18, 2020, 4:00 – 5:00 p.m.

For Middle School and High School Students

This is the time of year when the upcoming elections are hard to miss! Although most of you are too young to vote in this election, it won’t be all that long before you can register to vote. And there are ways you might get involved even before you reach the voting age of 18. How much do you know about the electoral process in your city, your state, and your country? Our UU Principles highlight the use of the democratic process but just what does that mean? We won’t be discussing specific candidates but we will talk about the importance of voting and how to make informed choices that reflect your interests and values.

We will be joined by special guest, Phil Gardner. While growing up, Phil learned the importance of justice, equality, and compassion in society and started volunteering for political campaigns as a teenager. He ended up working for many years in Congressman Denny Heck’s office and, when Denny Heck announced his retirement, Phil ran for Congress himself! Phil attended TUUC as a child and grew up in our RE Program. He is sure to be inspiring and proof that teens can be involved and can make a difference!

Registration required: Register here.

Leaders: Debbie Cafazzo and Robin Hamman
