After an election cycle spanning nearly two years, every vote in America has been cast. And now, all we can do is wait. On this week’s episode of State of Belief, Interfaith Alliance’s weekly radio show and podcast, we will explore the state of play in the presidential race.
With uniquely challenging circumstances surrounding voting this November, organizing efforts took on even greater importance. Pastor Rhonda Thomas, executive director of Faith in Florida, played a key role in getting voters, particularly voters of color, to the polls in her state. Pastor Rhonda joins Rev. Welton Gaddy, host of State of Belief, to share how her organization was able to mobilize voters of faith in a hugely significant way statewide.
Right now, the Trump campaign is leading an unprecedented effort to sow doubt in the validity of our democratic processes. Joining the show once again to break it all down is Greg Lebel, Professor Emeritus of Political Management at George Washington University. Greg joins Welton to provide valuable insight into the ways that the Trump campaign is seeking to undermine the democratic institution of elections, evaluate the results that have already come in, and discuss the path forward.
The results of this election will undoubtedly have a significant impact on the work of those fighting for religious freedom. On this week’s episode, Rabbi Jack Moline, president of Interfaith Alliance, will discuss in detail the efforts that the Alliance undertook in the lead up to the election, as well as the implications of the results on Interfaith Alliance’s work in the months ahead.
