Columbus Faith Leaders Hold ‘Faith Votes No’ Rally Ahead of August 8th Election 


Columbus, Ohio – On Wednesday, August 2nd, at 11 a.m., Columbus faith leaders, ahead of the August 8th election, will rally together to encourage people of faith to vote NO on Issue 1.  


This resolution would destroy the sacred principle of “one person one vote.” As people of faith, we must continue to pray without ceasing, not just with our words and thoughts but with our actions and ballot. We must organize our congregations, our communities and our neighbors to protect those who are marginalized and to protect our democracy.
