Dear WeROC leaders, friends and supporters, please share this information widely in your own networks, family and friends. Studies show that the most effective way to impact voting and social change is relational organizing, i.e., communicating with those we know and/or we are related to. Let’s make this election season one that supports deep social change by electing officials who support our mission. We want WeROC and our MOSES partners to be a meaningful part of building the kinds of smart, powerful, and durable cross-racial coalitions — locally, regionally, and statewide — that can win fundamental change and build that Beloved Community.
Let’s vote and encourage others to vote! Let’s elect those who govern by the values we hold dear. Let’s make sure our voice is not ignored!

Don’t forget to be counted in the Census!
Ten simple questions, three minutes tops. Be counted!
Counting each Michigander in the US 2020 Census ensures that Michigan gets its proper representation in Congress and all sorts of other public funding for education, roads, etc.. If we lose a representative because of an under-count, Michigan will have a smaller voice in national decisions. That means your vote for representatives is less powerful nationally than it should be! Participate online at www.gov 2020 census, or by phone at (844) 330-2020.
