[FREE] Albuquerque Vote Summit – YP4 Building Power to Win Road Trip
July 27 @ 10:30 am - 9:00 pm
Young People For believes at the core of social justice is civic engagement. This framework gives room for our active Vote initiative, whose goal is to provide education and resources to unlock the barriers to the ballot box in order to engage historically marginalized communities in the political process.
Starting in June 2018, we are going on the road for our Building Power to Win Road Trip, to train young people across the country to center civic engagement in their communities by centering the issues they care about. We want to multiply efforts on the ground, by ensuring that young people who have been historically left out of training spaces, are equipped with the necessary tools and skills to increase their impact, right now.As we approach a decisive election that will greatly impact our lives and our future, we are building a force of young people equipped to break down barriers to the ballot box and mobilize their communities to the polls. Not just for this election, but for a lifetime.
As part of our Building Power to Win Road Trip, we are hosting a Vote Summit in Albuquerque, New Mexico! The first day will be open to the public and will consist of trainings to contextualize our civic engagement work and break down concrete strategies to mobilize your community, not only in the months leading up to the midterm elections, but for the long term. Join us on July 27th to kick off your voter engagement work and strategize ways to mobilize your community to the polls!
Once you register, we will send you a complete logistics email with all of the information you need to know!
Special thank you to our amazing partners:
