Civic duty and our call to do justice

I don't think I need to remind you of the importance of voting today.

IMPACT is non-partisan.
Our civic duty calls us to vote.
Our faith calls us to do justice.

Please pray and reflect and choose the candidates you feel best represent the issues of justice on which IMPACT has been focusing. Remember, these are the leaders with whom we'll be dealing come next March and the Nehemiah Action. The wonderful, non-partisan site Charlottesville Tomorrow has voter guides available.

To refuse to participate in the shaping of our future is to give it up ... Each of us must find our work and do it. Militancy no longer means guns at high noon, if it ever did. It means actively working for change, sometimes in the absence of any surety that change is coming.

- Audre Lorde, from her book Sister Outsider
