Get Involved

I'm proud to be from Connecticut this morning. We sent a message well beyond our borders yesterday to politicans who support the war in Iraq. It felt good to vote. Apparently it was the highest turnout ever in a primary.

There are very definite rules about clergy advocating one candidate over another. And I won't do that. The message I want to get out though is that our votes can make a difference. When it comes to sexual justice issues like abortion, contraception, marriage equality, sex education, and so on, who is in office on the federal, state, and local difference makes a difference.

The elections are less than three months away. I hope you will get involved in working for pro-choice, pro-equality candidates at every level.
