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!

California is leading the way

Thank you to Governor Jerry Brown, and congratulations to Secretary of State Alex Padilla and Assemblymembers Lorena Gonzalez, Kevin McCarty and Luis Alejo. Their bill, ‪‎AB 1461‬ the New Motor Voter Act was signed into law by Governor Brown in October. California is now the second state to have automatic voter registration. We are leading the way in making voter registration easier and helping more people to participate in the civic process.
