PeaceWorks Rochester


Description: Dear Activist,


Since our founding in 1972, GVCP has maintained a nonpartisan approach to electoral politics. (We demand peace and justice from whomever is in office.) GVCP will continue this nonpartisan position in the 2020 election.

However, we are going to participate in a consortium called Protect the Results. This project represents a collaboration of over 120 organizations. The purpose of Protect the Results is to make sure that the votes of the electorate determine the outcome of the election.

If Donald Trump wins the presidential election honestly, and Joe Biden concedes, we will take no further action. If Joe Biden wins the presidential election honestly, and if Donald Trump concedes, we will take no further action. However, if either candidate refuses to accept the outcome of the election, we will take the appropriate action.

At the moment, Susan Bailey and I are co-hosts for a Protect the Results vigil that is planned to take place in Geneseo (corner of Main & South) on Wednesday, November 4th, at 4:00 PM. Everyone will wear masks and practice physical distancing.

We may not need a vigil, or November 4th may not be the right time for the vigil. That’s because the results may not be clear on November 4th. Susan and I will have to make that decision at 12:00 Noon on November 4th. We will inform everyone by email at that point. We may cancel or postpone. However, we are preparing for the vigil on November 4th.

In order to receive notification at 12:00 Noon on November 4th, you must register at SADLY, AS OF 10/28, NO EVENT IS PLANNED FOR ROCHESTER. ROCHESTER ACTIVISTS WILL BE WARMLY WELCOMED IN GENESEO. (You can always cancel if someone steps up to do an event in Rochester.)

We are calling upon activists—of whatever party—to join with us to Protect the Results. If you would like to register for this event, go to enter your Zip code, and register.

**Please forward widely**
