A More Perfect Union’s work in 2022, its inaugural year, is focused on ensuring a free, fair, safe, and accessible 2022 midterm election by supporting American Jewish institutions to recruit poll workers, poll watchers, and lawyers; to establish new polling sites; and to build relationships to support local election officials.
