RAC-FL Civic Engagement Mitzvah Day

Sunday, October 4, 2020

Join congregations and communities from across Florida for an afternoon and evening of learning and action through RAC-FL’s 2020 Civic Engagement Campaign. In an election year where so much is at stake for Reform Jewish values, we will hear about the current state of voter suppression in Florida, reach out to low propensity voters to ensure they have the information and tools to vote (and vote safely), and learn about the Florida ballot and mechanics of vote-by-mail.
