Methodists are among the Black religious leaders in Georgia organized in a non-partisan effort to support voting rights. This effort, called FaithWorks, is hosting an online informational webinar on Monday, August 1, at 7 pm. Log on at https://bit.ly/3b85nvJ.
 
"It is an honor to invite members of the North Georgia Conference to take part in an effort to ensure that everyone has access to cast their vote in this year’s elections," said Rev. Dr. Brian Tillman, Director of Inclusion and Advocacy for the North Georgia Conference. "This is not about supporting a particular candidate or party, it’s about the bedrock of democracy, free and fair elections for all who meet the voting requirements."
 
Among the creators of Faith Works, is Rev. Dr. Sherry Austin, pastor of Connections at Metropolitan UMC, as well as other leaders from the pan-Methodist Family like Bishop Thomas L. Brown from the CME Church and Bishop Reginald T. Jackson from the AME Church.
 
"You will notice that the creators of Faith Works are Black church leaders however, this is not an organization that is for Black people alone," said Rev. Dr. Tillman. "Faith Works is committed to working together with all Georgians to support voting access. This should be an effort we can all support."
