Key Resources – Voter Commitment Cards

Call Ayesha Noor at 804-908-3404 or email anoor@vaipl.org to request voter cards. This year we are offering two types:
● Faithful Citizen Voter Card – This set of voter commitment cards is centered on upholding economic, social, environmental and racial justice (pictured above).
● Creation Care Voter Cards – These voter commitment cards are specifically focused on caring for Creation, the environment and elevating environmental justice. You can also sign up online to be a Creation Care voter by clicking here.
These cards should be filled in and mailed back to us so we can make sure to
follow up with signers on their commitment.

VA Interfaith Power and Light (VAIPL) will not tell you which candidate or party to vote for as we are nonpartisan. We do not ask you to vote only with these issues in mine, but we do ask you to consider the views of candidates on climate change, environmental justice and Creation care.
