#RepairTheVote Effort Empowers Communities and Provides Resources to Make Sure Everyone’s Voice is Heard on Election Day
(New York) – Repair the World, a national nonprofit organization that mobilizes Jews and their communities to take action to pursue a just world, igniting a lifelong commitment to service, recently launched #RepairTheVote – a comprehensive effort so we can all take action and volunteer to ensure that every eligible American can safely cast their ballot by November 3, 2020.
In recent years, our elections have been left vulnerable to laws that limit access to voting, specifically restricting voting access for Communities of Color, people with disabilities, LGBTQ+ individuals, people who are currently or formerly incarcerated, people experiencing homelessness, and other historically marginalized groups.
From voting to volunteering, #RepairTheVote will walk people through important resources to exercise their right to vote and how to use their time to serve in this election, including in-person and virtual opportunities, done in partnership with local service organizations addressing urgent needs in our communities.

Repair the World mobilizes Jews and their communities to take action to pursue a just world, igniting a lifelong commitment to service. We believe service in support of social change is vital to a flourishing Jewish community and an inspired Jewish life. By 2030, Repair will inspire and catalyze one million acts of service towards repairing the world.
