Lawyers & Collars Voter Protection Webinar

Join us for an interactive webinar to discuss the Lawyers & Collars Campaign. Co-hosted by The Skinner Leadership Institute, National African American Clergy Network, Sojourners and the Lawyers Committee, we will discuss our plans to host: "We are Watching" Secretary of State Meetings, Prayer Breakfasts', Turnout Sunday Services in ALABAMA, FLORIDA, GEORGIA, PENNSYLVANIA, MICHIGAN, OHIO and NEW YORK. We will also have a deep dive discussion to ensure that you and your congregation members: "Know your Rights" on Election Day!


Our very democracy, the rule of law, as well as precious blood-bought civil and human rights progress are at stake in the 2018 Midterm Election and beyond.  This harsh reality makes our unity more crucial than ever. 

Between now and the November 6th Election, we are calling on pastors in NY, AL, GA, OH, FL, MI and PA to engage in voter protection and engagement activities as follows:

SEPTEMBER: Voter Protection Webinars for pastors and lay leaders focused on "Know Your Rights," What's at Stake?", Voter Protection Strategies."We are Watching" meetings with your Secretary of State, so they know that clergy will be prayerfully watching to ensure that our communities and their votes are protected. 

OCTOBER: Prayer Breakfasts in your states to energizing voter engagement and equipping pastors for election day.

NOVEMBER: Turnout Sunday services and Election day events for pastors and churches focused on voter turnout and protection of vulnerable voters at targeted precincts. We will call on all clergy to wear your sacred collars to the polls on election day and to collaborate with lawyers in precincts of vulnerable populations in across the country.

Working in unity, our denomination and independent churches can mobilize an historic level of African American voter turnout in the 2018 Midterm Election.
