“This election isn’t politics as usual,” said the Rev. Alvin Herring, executive director, Faith in Action. “We continue to fight to ensure space and place for all of God’s children. In addition to organizing in support of ballot measures that promote inclusion and belonging, we pushed congregations affiliated with us to become 100 percent voting congregations, organized several voter sabbath weekends where clergy committed to preach, teach and help parishioners make a plan to vote, launched a social media push urging our followers to record videos with a #LoveVotes message and organized Souls to the Polls in English and Spanish-speaking congregations.”

“The path forward is clearly groups standing together in solidarity with each other,” said Rabbi Mordecai Liebling, faculty member, Reconstructionist Rabbinical College. “The divisiveness of rhetoric prior to this election must be put behind us, and the path toward democracy and justice can only be walked arm in arm, leaving no one behind us and elevating no one above us. It is our faith in true democracy that will allow us to move forward.”

“As a faith leader, my ministry has focused on those society has made ‘the least of these,’” said the Rev. Cassandra Gould, executive director, Missouri Faith Voices in Kansas City, Missouri. “Over the past several months from church fellowship halls and even sanctuaries across Missouri, we have canvassed, registered and called voters whom others have counted out. Today I voted for amendments, ballot measures and candidates that represent anti-racism policies and economic inclusion for all of God’s children because faith votes.”
