CANVASSING TRAINING OPPORTUNITY:
Sunday, September 23, 2018
First Mennonite Church of Champaign-Urbana
902 W. Springfield Avenue
Urbana, IL 61801
Time: 12:15 pm
Please take advantage of an upcoming Canvass Training with Esther Patt from the People’s Agenda, to be held at the First Mennonite Church of Champaign-Urbana, 902 W. Springfield, Urbana. Diane Ore, chair of Bend the Arc:CU, will have comments tying the canvassing to Sukkot.
Bend the Arc is partnering with the First Mennonite Church’s Youth Group for a canvass of University of Illinois students. We hope to inform students about the upcoming midterm election and register those students who are first-time voters or who have a different address from the last time they voted.
Please come train with us, learn about Sukkot, and canvass/register voters with us.
For Those Who Resist
By Trisha Arlin
For those who plan and strategize,
For those who gather at a moment's notice,
For those who serve as witnesses,
For those who are civil and disobedient,
For those who speak up at local meetings,
For those who wear pink hats with millions,
For those who contribute in bursts,
For those who make it their life's work,
For those whose bodies keep them at home,
For those who march,
For those who refuse to budge,
For those who organize votes,
For those who hearts may be breaking,
For those whose anger overwhelms,
For those who gather with friends and allies,
For those who stand alone,
For all those who resist,
We give thanks.
