    Postcards and more!

    JOIN THE INTERFAITH VOTING ACTION NETWORK (IVAN)
    for our first election protection action opportunity
    on WEDNESDAY, MAY 29 from 4:00-6:00 PM  
    A POSTCARD WRITING PARTY!

    IVAN is a collaboration of Carolina Jews for Justice, Congregation Beth HaTephila, The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Asheville and recently expanded to include friends from Quaker Call NC. We gather to meet with other interfaith concerned citizens and learn about opportunities to get involved with safeguarding our elections process in Western NC. 

    On Wednesday May 29 in a nonpartisan effort, we will join together in central Asheville (address provided upon registering below) to write postcards to Black NC voters identified by the organization “Reclaim Our Vote” in their “Pledge to Vote and Do More” campaign.  Our target will be to write at least 20 postcards each person for a total of 1,000 postcards.  People can take extra postcards home to finish, if needed.  Please bring your favorite pen/markers/stickers. Donations are gratefully accepted ($10 suggested or you can also bring postcard stamps to contribute too), but not required.  

    There will be additional future opportunities for networking, and to take action depending on people's interest such as tabling at events in Buncombe and Henderson County to register people to vote and assist with obtaining sufficient identification, canvassing, poll protection work, and reaching out to Western NC county election boards.

    WNC Votes Coalition Canvassing Event

    WNC Votes

    It's easy. It's effective. And it's fun! Our deep canvassing approach is focused on listening to voters' experiences and concerns. And engaging in honest conversations, based on empathy and support, is one of the most effective ways of helping sporadic voters feel empowered and ready to vote.

    We'll provide everything you need—training, voter lists, voting info materials, water and snacks—and we'll pair you up with a partner. Sign up now at

We gather in multi-racial, multicultural and genderful Jewish community, uplifting songs and leaders historically and ongoingly pushed to the margins. Together, we transmit and reclaim diasporic Jewish singing traditions, celebrate original music emerging from our communities, and create heart-centered gatherings where we can all be leaders and learners of song.
