Church action and 2019 European Parliament elections
The next European Parliament elections take place from 23 to 26 May 2019. Through a direct vote, citizens of the European Union will elect Members of Parliament, who will shape life in the European Union for their five-year term and beyond!
In the run up to the European Parliament elections, CEC and the Churches’ Commission for Migrants in Europe (CCME) have developed a tool titled Europe: It’s OUR future – Church Action in the 2019 European Parliament elections to encourage strong church engagement in the process.
The tool addresses concerns for Europe’s future including: the EU as an area of shared values, the future of the EU, migration and refugees, climate change and sustainable development, the European social model and future of work, human rights, and creating a more equal and inclusive Europe. Europe: It’s OUR future also offers various ways to participate and learn more about the issues and election process.
