Support UCC Faith and Democracy 2020 Get Out the Vote

Please support the UCC’s Faith and Democracy 2020 campaign, Reclaim Our Vote, by sending out postcards aimed at increasing voter participation by persons of color in the November 2020 election.

Between August 9 and 16, you may pick up a bundle(s) of 20 postcards, stamps, and instructions on the front porches of the following Rock Springers’ houses:

  • Leslie and Preston Atkins at 1001 N. Rochester Street, Arlington, VA 22205
  • Shirley and Denny Bloomquist at 11136 Rich Meadow Drive, Great Falls, VA 22066
  • Pat and Mark Charette at 4915 34th Street North, Arlington, VA 22207 
  • JJ and Paul Gardiner at 2431 S. Culpepper Street, Arlington, VA 22206

The instructions include a simple script to add to each postcard, urging the recipient to check their voter registration status and plan to vote in November.

Each card only takes a couple of minutes to write. Please contact Rick Hale at randkhale@gmail.com with any questions or if you would like to participate, but aren’t able to pick up the postcards. When you pick up, please take a moment to fill out the form at https://bit.ly/RSpostcards so that we will know how many bundles have been picked up. And while you’re writing, take some photos and email them to ashley@rockspringucc.org to be included in a celebratory slide show later this fall.

Rock Spring has a strong and growing relationship with the Shirlington Employment and Education Center, known as SEEC, in South Arlington.
