Use your voice to defend life, advance justice, pursue peace, and find a place at the table for all God’s children.
Your voice makes a difference. If legislators only hear from one side on an issue they can only assume that is what their constituency wants. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Go to candidate forums. Contact your legislator and ask where they stand on an issue and why. Tell them where you stand. It's EASY and IMPORTANT!
