Town Council Candidate Forum

September 26th 2-3:30 p.m.

MooreUnity seeks to bridge divides in our community by finding common ground. Politics is often something that divides us, and it doesn't need to. Rather than voting a straight party line ticket, please first come meet the candidates running for Moorestown's Town Council at a live candidate forum on the lawn of the Perkins Center for the Arts. The outdoor event allows for social distancing. (This will also be live-streamed on MooreUnity's Facebook page and will be recorded and posted on YouTube.) Register here.

Get to Know the Candidates for Moorestown's Board of Education October 15th 7:30-9 p.m.

Election Day is November 3rd, and a healthy democracy depends upon an educated voter. Here's your chance to hear from the six candidates vying for three spots on Moorestown's Board of Education. The event will be moderated by MooreUnity and held via Zoom on Thursday, October 15th from 7:30-9:00 p.m.

Register here, and please submit questions in advance (by 10/14) to mooreunitynj@gmail.com. Include your name and address in the e-mail, so we can ensure that questions are coming from Moorestown voters.  Register here to receive the Zoom link.




Standing Up on the Bus October 17th (rain date 10/18) Drama Therapist Natalie Slaughter helps us get "on board" to fight racism, discrimination, anti-Semitism and more in an interactive workshop where we role play situations on an imaginary bus ride where we are the witnesses to (or victims of) inappropriate comments and actions.  Learn to push through the discomfort of the situation and respond in support of marginalized people.  This free workshop will be held from 1-3 p.m. on the Evergreen Lawn of the Perkins Center for the Arts to allow for social distancing.    For more information, register here.

We were recognized for actively promoting peace and non-violence, working with other groups to provide resources on violence prevention and fostering dialogue across political and ideological divides. We're grateful for the recognition, and appreciative of all the members of our group who are building MooreUnity in our community.
