The Grace Avenue Voter Engagement Team is a group of individuals that do not share a single ideology, but do passionately believe that our democracy depends on every individual having a voice.  They also believe that your vote and your faith are not exclusive of one another and that we bring all of who we are and what we believe to the ballot box.

For more information about the team or how you can be a part of it, please contact Jesseca Aziz at [email protected].
