UPCOMING VOTER ENGAGEMENT EVENTS

Join us as we take to the streets, work the phones and empower our community through voter engagement! Listen to neighbors as they share their concerns: educate community members about propositions that will address some of our regions’s biggest issues; and help register new voters often under-represented in our elections.

Each of the events will include training on how to engage the voters, food and an opportunity to knock on voters doors or call them by phone. It is very important and interesting work. We hope some of the voters we engage will join us in this in the future.
