Your Vote Matters! 2014 Volunteer Application

Launching our “Your Vote Matters 2014*” campaign, Asian Americans Advancing Justice - Los Angeles (Advancing Justice-LA) formerly known as the Asian Pacific American Legal Center is gearing up to call and and protect the rights of Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) voters for the November 4th General Election – and we need your help! The November 4th General Election will determine who represents our communities in Congress and other local races.

We need phone bankers to call AANHPIs and ensure they vote and poll monitors to protect the rights of AANHPI voters. Apply online here by filling out this form!

Why Phone Bank?
Calling voters allows them to ask questions about the voting process.
By being informed voters, the AANHPI community will be empowered voters.
