Rev. Elizabeth Nguyen is a Community Minister and works with the National Bail Fund Network as their Immigration Bond Coordinator. She joined us live on Sunday morning for our special UU the Vote worship service.
 
Rev. Elizabeth talks about how voting is just one part of the democratic system. In fact, it is the last part. She tells us about the need to organize, donate, protest, and demonstrate our UU values all season, not just on November 3rd.
