We received this important information from our friends at the Leadership Institute. Some of you have wondered – how can I be involved?  How can I make a difference during this election season? Being a poll worker is something you can do.

From the Leadership Institute:


It’s only nine weeks until Election Day, and America needs your help.

Did you know there’s a shortage of poll workers signed up to help monitor voting this year on Election Day? Read more from both NBC and National Review.

According to the National Review’s John Fund, health experts believe this election will be safe for nearly all Americans. But, due to the pandemic, polling stations across America will suffer because these stations are struggling to recruit poll workers.

You can take action today and become part of the American solution. Sign up to be an election official today. You can even make some money! Election workers can earn between $75 and $350 for their contribution to American democracy on Election Day.

It’s good for your resume, your wallet, and your country!

Here are the simple steps to sign up:

  1. Visit the U.S. Election Committee website.
  2. Select your state and city to get your application.
  3. Sign up and help maintain a fair election!

Thank you for your tireless efforts to serve your community! Feel free to forward this information to anyone you think might be interested in helping keep polling stations open.

Voting Is Every Citizen’s Duty

By | News and Events, She Prays She Votes 2020 | No Comments
The right to vote has been important in the history of our nation. Battles were fought and waged for many years across this country to provide EVERYONE the right to vote.
From the U.S. Constitution:
  • Constitution of the United States, Fifteenth Amendment, Section 1 – 1870: “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged … on the account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.”
  • Constitution of the United States, Nineteenth Amendment, Section 1 – 1920: “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged … on the account of sex.

Listen to some voices from the past:

  • Civil Rights slogan: 
    “One man, one vote”
  • Susan B. Anthony, social reformer and women’s rights activist, speech before her trial for voting – 1873
    “Here, in the first paragraph of the Declaration [of Independence], is the assertion of the natural right of all to the ballot, for how can ‘the consent of the governed” be given, if the right to vote be denied?”
  • Abraham Lincoln, 16th President of the United States, Speech at Bloomington, Illinois – 1856
    “The ballot is stronger than the bullet.”
  • Franklin D. Roosevelt, 32nd President of the United States
    “Nobody will ever deprive the American people of the right to vote except the American people themselves and the only way they could do this is by not voting.”

CWA has prepared resources to help you be a part of getting people registered to vote (add link).  Download these resources and use them in your church and community. CWA is also partnering with iVoterGuide to help you vote knowledgeably. You can check to see how the candidates in your state are rated based on information gathered from a number of resources.

“Do not be afraid.”

By | Blog, Minnesota, News and Events, She Prays She Votes 2020 | No Comments

“Do not be afraid of them; remember the Lord who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives and your houses.” Nehemiah 4:14

 We have chosen Nehemiah 4:14 as the foundational Scripture for our She Prays, She Votes 2020 project. Let me remind you of the context of this verse. Nehemiah has come to Jerusalem from captivity in Babylon. His task is to lead the remnant of Israel in rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem. A number of attempts have been made by their enemies to keep them from rebuilding. At this point, the threat had become physical. “All of them conspired together to come and fight against Jerusalem and to cause a disturbance in it.” Nehemiah 4:8. 

 In verse 14, Nehemiah tells the workers, “Do not be afraid of them.” These are such good words for us today. With all of the uncertainty in our world both physical and political, it is easy to be afraid. Fear is a very human emotion. We read “Do not fear” many times in Scripture.  But sometimes our humanness wins that battle.  But we cannot let the fear incapacitate us. It is like the fireman as he faces the burning building; he knows the fire, and he fears the fire, but his fear does not keep him from running into that building. It is his job and his sworn duty to run into that building. I believe it is also our duty as Christians to face the fear of the unknown in which we live – to remember the Lord who is great and awesome. 

 As we enter this uncertain election time, we must not let fear incapacitate us. We must move into this time seeking the Lord and praying daily for the election process and all of those who are running.  Just as Nehemiah’s workers held a sword in one hand and a trowel in the other, we must continue to be salt and light by holding up God’s Word and doing the work to which He has called us. 

 We are asking you to join us as we beseech the Father for His blessing and favor on our nation. Look for our information and registration packets next week for She Prays, She Votes 2020.

Introducing She Prays, She Votes 2020

The main goal of She Prays, She Votes 2020 will be prayer.  Now more than ever, Christians need to be on their knees before God to pray for our nation, for our leaders, and for this election.

We will be hosting ten prayer calls between now and Election Day in November. These calls will happen on each Thursday of the week from August 6 up until the last week in October. In each call, we will be focusing on a state where the election results are critical, but the main focus of these calls will be to seek God first and beseech Him for our nation. Every week we will be sending out details for the call that week and the one for the next week – when, how to connect and who will be joining us on the call to pray.

The secondary goal of this project is to get people out to vote. We will be working on making sure people are registered to vote and that they know where to go to do that. We will be providing information to help people walk through that process and, hopefully, inspire them to action. We are putting together packets of information that you will be able to download and share with your family and friends.

Please join us as we make a difference in Election 2020!

CWA Launches She Prays, She Votes 2020 Project

By | Blog, News and Events, She Prays She Votes 2020 | No Comments

“Do not be afraid of them; remember the Lord who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives and your houses.” Nehemiah 4:14

Remember the Lord Who is great and awesome … This is the Lord Who moves the hearts of the king like rivers of water. He is the One in absolute control. There is nothing better that we can do for this nation than to pray. When we pray, God’s Spirit moves across the land.

And fight … What does the “fight” look like?

  • The fight is you studying the candidates and then going to vote for the ones who reflect your values.
  • The fight is you driving an elderly friend or neighbor to the polls to vote.
  • The fight is you taking care of your young friends’ children, so they can go vote.
  • The fight is you volunteering to make phone calls on behalf of that candidate who shares your values.
  • The fight is you on your knees before the God Who places all people in positions of authority.
  • The fight is you beseeching God for our nation and our nation’s leaders.

In the time between now and Election Day, Concerned Women for America is going to provide you with resources to help you engage in the fight. Over the next few weeks, we will be providing you with information that will be helpful in getting yourself and others registered to vote.

We will also be doing weekly prayer calls to reach out to the One who tells us that if we will call out to Him and repent, He will heal our land. We will be asking Him for mercy for our nation and for forgiveness for our complacency and apathy. Our first prayer call will be on Thursday, August 13.

We encourage you to read each of our emails for She Votes, She Prays 2020. They will share details for the calls and new information about how you can remember “the Lord who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives and your houses.” Nehemiah 4:14
