Through “Loose the Chains”, the 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 to the polls.
The New Georgia Project is always interested in recruiting congregations and partnering with faith organizations. If you would like to get your community of worship involved or to learn more about our faith program, sign up to stay connected:
"Loose the Chains" Faith Agenda is focused on:
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.
