Yesterday, Americans United for Life announced that funding is available for 501(c) (3) organizations who wish to create and distribute non-partisan educational voter guides for the elections in November.
The president of Americans United for Life (AUL), Dr. Charmaine Yoest explained in a press release that “Voter guides are a way to empower voters to make well-informed choices on election day. Pro-life Americans want to get beyond the spin and know the truth, based on the record, about where the candidates stand.”
AUL vice president and executive director, Daniel McConchie added, “Pro-life voters are a key constituency that both Democrats and Republicans ignore at their peril. Americans United for Life is looking forward to helping pro-life Americans across the country vote their values in this election.”
AUL, the first national pro-life organization in America, spent $215,000 in 2006 on the creation and distribution of 2.8 million voter guides, however, this year the organization has increased funding and plans to spend $500,000 on more than six million guides for distribution across the country.
Organizations interested in applying for voter-guide funds should email Daniel McConchie at [email protected] by September 12.
