National Voter Registration Day
Sep 24 all-day

Empowering our community to engage in civic life (both political and nonpolitical) is an important
part of our commitment to eliminating racism and empowering women. While there are many
ways community members can be civically engaged, participating in the electoral process through
voting is one way people can help shape the policies and laws that affect our everyday lives.

We’ll be providing information about the voting process, and explain the when, where, and how to vote!
