The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has long advised members—whatever their political affiliation—to be actively engaged in their communities and politics. The First Presidency advised:
At Project Elect, we believe that governments and communities are missing out on having women in public decision-making seats. If we women of faith refuse to serve in public decision-making roles, we are disregarding our responsibilities and opportunities to be voices of wisdom, experience, and reason in a hugely important arena of human life.
Project Elect’s goal is to reach out to members of the Church to educate them on the importance of women’s involvement in public service.
