EBC Social Justice Advocacy Ministry: The Ebenezer Social Justice and Advocacy

after the 10:30 A.M. worship. The 30 Minute Protest is being held two days prior to
National Voter Registration Day which is September 20 th .  The effort is intended to draw
attention to the inadequate government response to gun violence, voter impediments, and
other civil rights restrictions. It is also an attempt to remind our community of the need
for higher Voter Registration and Voting in Texas. Please sign up to stand with us in the
Foyer on Sunday. Please contact Fannie Akingbala, Linda Ellison, Polly Street or Grova
Jones. We will have other East Austin Churches joining us in this effort.

Volunteer Deputy Registrar: The Ebenezer Social Justice Advocacy Ministry (SJAM)

website Volunteer deputy voter registrars (traviscountytx.gov)www.tax-
office.traviscountytx.gov. The state requires you to attend a one-hour training session.
The training session is through Zoom.
 
SJAM is working cooperatively with the NAACP, Travis County, and the Douglass Club
Legislative Committee on their Voter Initiative for 2022-2023. This will include a Voter
Information forum/webinar and voter registration drive. It will also include a National
Voter Registration Day (Sept 20th ). There is indoor voter registration at the Millennium
Youth Entertainment Complex on Saturdays in September.

September 24th – 2:00 P.M. – 4:00 P.M.
The SJAM will also support Central Texas Interfaith's activities. The more we work
