Sri Preston Kulkarni (TX-22)
A former U.S. Foreign Service Officer, Sri Preston Kulkarni knows the United States should be using diplomacy first and foremost. He wants to see a foreign policy that prioritizes international alliances and respect for human rights. He is also aware that bombs and missiles can fix neither the endless wars in which we are involved nor the national security threats the future will bring — more pandemics and climate catastrophe.

Rev. Raphael Warnock (Senate, GA)
Rev. Raphael Warnock has stepped into the former pulpit of Martin Luther King Jr. and evokes his worldview around peace and justice issues: “Dr. King talked about war and some are beating the drums of war even tonight. Pray for our nation, but as you think about the geopolitical situation, let us resist the demons of militarism that disturb our domestic situation.”

Can we do anything electorally as a 501(c)(3)?
Yes, but in a restricted, nonpartisan way. Alliance for Justice has some good resources on 501 (c)(3) eligible electoral work. A few more common actions are below (full list here) and you can find more information at https://bolderadvocacy.org/.
- Conduct nonpartisan get-out-the-vote and voter registration drives
- Sponsor candidate debates
- Conduct voter protection activities
- Canvass the public on issues
Federal tax law absolutely prohibits 501(c)(3)s from supporting or opposing candidates for public office. 501(c)(3)s cannot endorse candidates or make independent expenditures suggesting who is the “better” candidate without jeopardizing their tax-exempt status.
