Project Description

Loose the Chains

Through Loose the Chains, New Georgia Project partners with churches, synagogues, mosques, and other religious organizations to host voter registration drives, disseminate information about voting rights and voter protection, and assist voters in getting to the polls. The New Georgia Project is always interested in recruiting congregations and partnering with faith organizations.

Priorities

  • BLACK CHURCH “VOTE BY MAIL” CAMPAIGN: NGP, Ebenezer Baptist Church, Wheat Street Baptist Church, and Bishops of the AME, AME Zion and CME churches in Georgia encourage every African American congregation in Georgia join our “Vote by Mail” campaign. If we vote together in worship as a collective sacred act, we can and will shift “Black Church” voter turnout exponentially!

  • VOTER PLEDGE FOR CONGREGATIONS: NGP partners with churches for our “Loose The Chains” pledge card program. More than 5,000 pledge cards were sent in 2017, along with a letter explaining the importance of the role that faith institutions play in our democracy, explaining the campaign, and rules for participation. If you or your congregation would like to participate
  • FAITH BLOG: NGP’s Faith Blog provides our faith partners with up to the minute activities, volunteer opportunities, voter protection rallies, and other relevant events.
