    Episode 81 - U.S. Census and Election Year

    Episode 81 - U.S. Census and Election Year

    Alli and Jasree are joined by Alan Yarborough, the Church Relations Officer in the Office of Government Relations for The Episcopal Church. Alan talks about why it is important for all to participate in the U.S. Census, the relationship of faith and politics, and the upcoming elections.
    FROM ALAN -- 
    Update on COVID19 and the 2020 Census: Since this podcast was recorded, the reality of daily life in the U.S. has changed. Regarding the U.S. 2020 Census, what is most important to keep in mind is that it is still moving forward, and it is easier now more than ever to fill out the census, online, over the phone, and by mail, all without having to see a census worker. Beyond that, the Census Bureau is working with health professionals to adjust their operations as needed and to keep the census data collection on schedule.
    Additionally, some suggestions in this podcast involve in person interactions and messaging. As we temporarily shift many church activities to online platforms, let us know the creative virtual ways you plan to message about the 2020 Census within your community.
    Alan also shares the resources available for Episcopalians for the 2020 Census, 2020 Election, and a Civil Discourse Curriculum, all of which can be found here.

This Episcopalian Life (in Connecticut)

It reminds me a lot of the podcast giant TAL but it hits closer to home since it’s centered on the small, vibrant, and loving community of my Episco-Pals in CT whom I love so much. Thanks for doing the work you’re doing and for providing us all with such a delightful listen!

Great resource for ECCT

It is so great to hear what God is up to in Connecticut!
