Hold in the Light

RECEIVED Mon., Nov. 2, 2020

Dear Editor, 
    As a member of Friends Meeting of Austin I ask that you share with the Austin community this statement that we approved at our last Meeting for Business:
    The Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) advocates for social justice and peaceful change in our democratic republic. We ask everyone here and around the world to join us as we hold in the Light all U.S. citizens as they engage in the election process in all states and territories to cast their votes for the leadership in our local, state, and federal governments by November 3, 2020; to count and report those votes securely; and to participate in the Electoral College process. We also ask everyone to hold in the Light all those who are barred from voting but will be affected by this election.
