Paths cross, roads meet, intersections are everywhere in our lives. None of us is just one thing, and so we find intersections as well in our identities. How do the intersections in race, age, gender, sexual orientation, body style, abilty and other elements of identity generate wider patterns of privilege and oppression in our society, and how can we be intentional in assuring equity and justice in all our complex diversity?
The fifth principle of our UU faith states that we affirm “the right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large.” In this nation founded on the democratic process, voter suppression has been used systematically to perpetuate the dominance of those in power. The John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act of 2021 proposes to restrict state legislatures from passing bills that make it harder to vote, disproportionately deterring racial minorities from voting, and the Freedom to Vote Act of 2021 protects elections from partisan gerrymandering and voter suppression. Join us as we explore how these bills are vital to the protection of our democracy.
