Sample Press release for your Mosque, Mandir, Gurdwaras and other places of worship.
We have many new communities and each one is learning the ropes. However, almost all the Christian and Jewish organizations are well established and are familiar with the issues. It is the newer congregations that need to take precautions.
We can guard ourselves against any rumors or accusations about supporting a political candidate. The candidates visit the places of worship and take pictures, a reasonable thing to do. However, if they post the photos as an insinuation of support for them, then it is a problem. We cannot control what others do, we can manage what we do.
A few of our congregations have men and women fresh off the boats and are in leadership positions. Even though an announcement is made, it is better to post it on the website. It knocks off any rumor and if anyone has a question, ask them to visit the website.
Here is a sample Press Release
Your city, June 00, 2018 – We welcome all political candidates to visit our facility and talk with our congregants. However, please note that we will not endorse any candidate and it is entirely up to the individuals to vote who he or she chooses.
