August Newsletter 
Helping you and your congregation have a positive impact on our environment. 
We have some exciting news for you! 
We are launching a Your Vote Matters Campaign! 
This program is directed towards the younger generation! Did you know that there are 7 million people who are turning 18 years old this year before the election? 

We are making sure that these young voters are registered and educated to that they can make educated choices for their elected officials. 

There are so many ways this country is getting it wrong. From who gets to vote, and how we vote, the prison industrial complex, what we learn in school, and whether or not we’ll be able to get a job that can feed and house us after we graduate, to who watches our kids; it often seems like the majority of people in this country are left wondering where the American dream went when it was their turn to have it.

Start by registering to vote. Then participate in our XBOX / PS4 Parties, Watch Parties, listen to the Podcasts, and participate in the Open Table Talks, to get armed to make an actual, long lasting, IMPACT.

Visit our voting landing page here. 

Our Upcoming Events 
Join us on September 8th at 7PM to watch “The legal Marijuana Industry is Rigged” an episode from the “Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj” with discussion to follow. Hasan questions the booming cannabis industry, which is being dominated by rich white businessmen at the expense of small growers and people of color. Register here. 

Visit our website to listen to our podcasts, to sign-up for upcoming watch parties, and participate in our Call of Duty on Racism events! 
Extension for National Moratorium on Utility Shutoffs

Earlier this month Dallas Conyers, our program coordinator, created waves! Over 500 Faith Leaders urged Congress to issue National Moratorium on Utility Shutoffs. Read more about Dallas' efforts here. 
Rev. Dallas Conyers shared her reason why the #NoShutOffs moratorium is so important! “The economic disparity that is increasing is horrendous, morally, and financially. We are three days out before most of the country's protections for utilities are cut off. Only 5 states will continue that protection. That means everyone else is left there on their own.”  Watch the interview here.
