Voter Guide

Rev. Penny Nixon, senior minister of Congregational Church of San Mateo, has been instrumental in putting together this voter guide for people of faith in California! Here’s what Penny has to say: 

“Amidst the crises of 2020, people of faith across California are telling a new story grounded in who we are and the future we will deliver–a state where everyone, no matter our race or place, can truly belong and thrive. 

We see this season’s ballot not as a list of separate selections, but a decision we’ll make together across interconnected issues to put racial and economic justice at the center of our moral vision for California’s future. This moment calls on each of us to share this vision relentlessly with others. 

Rev. Marlyn Bussey and I had the opportunity to be part of a state-wide coalition of clergy, faith leaders and tribal leaders who created a moral narrative, and I had the opportunity to work on a voter guide called FAITHVOTES for love and justice. 

Like you, we are doing our utmost to make a difference in the most important election in our lifetime. Because we have a personal relationship with you, we are asking you to do 3 things:

  1. Take a few minutes to watch the video that gives a personal message about the voter guide
  2. Read the voter guide, and take it with you to the polls, or wherever you fill out your ballot.
  3. Please spread this voter guide among your networks, post it on your social media, send it to your family and friends in California.

Our goal is to get this moral narrative and guide in the hands of 1,000 faith leaders and 100,000 people of faith across our state as soon as possible. Will you be part of this effort to help turn the tide here in California for racial and economic justice?”
