Washington, D.C.- The National Black Church Initiative declares its support for Pastor Jamal Bryant’s Empowerment Temple’s movement to register 1 million voters on Easter Sunday, April 8th. We commend Pastor Jamal Bryant for his extraordinary leadership in representing the finest tradition of the black church to empower those of us whose backs are against the wall and need to be empowered to use our votes to change our communities.

 

Reverend Anthony Evans, President of NBCI says: “Pastor Bryant should be commended on this great effort and we intend to work with him until this goal is reached. I have authorized all of our churches to follow the leadership of Pastor Bryant on this issue.”

 

We keep being reminded that voting is not just essential, it is the essence of a democracy. One vote can count as a million votes when it is cast with power. All Black churches, all 150,000 of us, 34,000 of which are represented by NBCI, should register at least 20 members of their congregations who remain unregistered to vote. Our call as a church community is to make sure everyone is included in the voting process and empowered to make a difference. This voting registration program conforms to NBCI’s Civil Society Initiative.
