COVID-19

The African American community has been ravaged by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. It has exposed massive systemic inequities in our health care system and in the disproportionate number of Black people among "essential workers, consistently exposing them more to the virus. As the majority of states have opened up, many pastors are now grappling with when and how to return to their places of worship.

 

We have compiled for your information a short Presentation assembled from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Guidelines on Returning to Places of Worship during the pandemic. Clearly there are many cultural adjustments required to keep African American parishioners safe. We hope this information will the helpful to you.

ELECTIONS

The TurnOut Sunday Toolkit will benefit voters in states across the nation. We know that many African Americans traditionally participate in “Souls to the Polls” early voting programs, and voting at the polls, and must now navigate how to vote safely this year. The church must be a leader in this work. We want to make sure that you have the information you need to participate safely in upcoming elections, ensuring that we elect the candidates that best represent the interests of our communities, our states, and our nation!
