ECOFAITH’S VISION FOR THE ‘JUST VOTE’ INITIATIVE: 

Empowering one another and our communities to “rediscover the courage to rise up with the most vulnerable and oppressed in the face of systems that escalate injustice and climate chaos” is core to the values and vision of EcoFaith Recovery. Faith communities are also formed around core values and commitments about God’s will for the world and the role of human beings in partnering with God to bring that vision more fully into reality. Consequently, faith communities have a very important role to play in any political or electoral process whereby a society seeks to put its values into action.
By all accounts, the upcoming November elections will be enormously important in this regard. While faith communities may not legally endorse candidates in partisan elections, they are free to discuss core values that are important in electoral politics. Individual faith community members are free and encouraged to work on both partisan and nonpartisan campaigns through which they believe the core values of their faith can best be expressed in the political process.
This initiative invites all of us to engage the electoral process from our deepest values, and the leaders of EcoFaith Recovery are committed to supporting YOU as you work with others to “Harness your Values for Climate and Racial Justice” in the electoral process this fall. 
JUST VOTE! And make your vote a JUST VOTE!

Every 1st, 3rd and 5th THURSDAY MORNINGS
8:45 – 10:15 a.m. Pacific Standard Time
This Thursday Morning Meeting is for anyone who is organizing congregations to take action, or organizing “action teams” of three or more people from their communities willing to ACT Together. During this time we will utilize EcoFaith Recovery’s Practices for Awakening Leadership to support one another in this initiative through resource sharing and relationship building, story sharing and mutual mentoring. We invite you to consider how The Practices might ground and empower your own work! If possible, please review them HERE before the Thursday morning meeting.
Other meeting times may be available upon request, by emailing office@ecofaithrecovery.org.
