MEDIA, what is #MeditateTheVote
More than perhaps ever before our campaign season has devolved into a rambunctious back and forth of shouting, insults, and even violence. But some have a different idea, an idea too radical not too be taken seriously. Sister Jenna is one of the initiators of Meditate the Vote — a call for a more reflective approach to this year’s election. Tune in to learn more about this election season’s most innovative use of religion on the campaign trail.
With the June 14 primary election for the District of Columbia almost upon us, let us consider the seriousness of every vote. This is not an opinion opportunity. Scripture reminds us in Deuteronomy 1:13: "Choose for your tribes wise, understanding, and experienced men," (and I add women) and it continues by saying, "and I will appoint them as your heads." The definition of the word "choose" is to pick out or select (someone or something) as being the best or most appropriate of two or more alternatives. Today, however, it seems the news media is influencing the vote.
Do you wish for fewer guns to be accessible to all? More justice when it comes to the lost lives of young African American males? Do you want to see people of all life choices to feel accepted and safe? Whatever are those deep inner thoughts, I am aware more than ever why Meditate The Vote is so timely and invites us all to a call for action.
Our goal is simple. We’re encouraging people to meditate, pray or be mindful in whatever way works for them and then, from a calm state, engage in meaningful and insightful conversations. Ask questions. Listen to others. Do your research. Meditate on who will best lead our country in the highest and best way for all. We do not endorse any specific candidate. We simply ask people go inside, evaluate options and in November vote from the quiet truth of their own heart.

So What About this #MeditateTheVote
MeditateTheVote is an invitation to explore one’s thoughts in a manner that amplifies their views in open forums, through radio, social media, media, vlogs and blogs. Our goal is to engage in a larger conversation that bridges gaps to create a cohesive understanding of genuine commonality. It is our hope that MeditateTheVote acts as a subtle tool that offers more trust and partnership. The month of May has been declared National Meditation Month which aligned perfectly with the theme of this platform. We felt it appropriate to launch on May 1 st and will continue through the election process on November 8th . Voting is power, because voting is us. Join us on this journey and MeditateTheVote.
