Progressive faith leaders across the state say they’re encouraging congregations to educate themselves on candidates and issues.
They are sharing an online Faithful Voter Reflection Guide, which offers a moral perspective for voters who plan to cast their ballot in Tuesday’s election.
Rev. Marcus Fairly, program coordinator for the North Carolina Black Alliance, said there has been an uptick in volunteerism, phone banking and excitement about the midterm election among the state’s Black congregations.
“We have eight hubs across the state of North Carolina, and we’re bringing voice to communities of color to ensure that we’re engaged in the political process,” Fairly explained.
