EDGEHILL VOTES!


 

 

For all of us in NOAH, democracy and voting rights are as sacred as they are personal. NOAH organization members throughout Nashville are striving for 100% registration and voting among all eligible members. As John Lewis so beautifully expressed in his New York Times essay, printed on the day of his funeral, “The vote is the most powerful nonviolent change agent you have in a democratic society. You must use it because it is not guaranteed. You can lose it.” Voting is also one vehicle we use for powerful community change and transformation. Thank you for working with us on the 2020 NOAH Voter Challenge!
