African American Voter Registration, Education, & Participation Project

Increasing African American and urban voter registration, education, and participation through outreach to targeted communities in California. We've registered over 200,000 voters and counting since 2002!

About Us

Since our founding in 2002, African American Voter Registration, Education, and Participation (AAVREP)’s mission has been to increase African American and urban voter registration, education, and civic participation.

Through partnerships with community, labor and religious organizations, AAVREP empowers individuals and neighborhoods one vote at a time.

Throughout California history, black voters have been our most consistent Democratic voting block, standing strong against conservative efforts to roll back civil rights and equal opportunity.

From the State House to the White House, African Americans are currently leading the resistance to those who would destroy the progress we have made through 200 years of struggle.
