Our Civic Engagement program works to educate our community and elected officials about the positive contributions of refugees and immigrants; partner with other immigrant and refugee service agencies to improve services; and advocate for and alongside new Americans for better welcoming communities.
One of the biggest efforts our Civic Engagement team carries out, however, is working to register and educate new American voters. This work is especially important to help new Americans lift their voices and take a larger role in our democracy – and we need your help! Find out below the great efforts you can do to join our work.
In partnership with six other non-profits, we work to register new American voters not only at community events but at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Naturalization Ceremonies. Every week we help to register about 300 brand-new American citizens as new voters! This is a huge effort every week, and we are in constant need of volunteers.
All volunteers MUST be trained. For more information about the work, or to sign up for an upcoming training, please contact Stephanie Jackson Ali at – firstname.lastname@example.org or (404) 299-6099 ext. 268.
Donate for Registration: If you want to support our incredible voter registration work, but don’t have the time available to come to events, please consider donating in-kind needs through our Amazon Wish List. Items needed for voter registration can be expensive, and your tax-deductible donations can truly help! If you are a business, civic group, or faith community, you could also help offset some of our printing costs by printing some of our handouts! Please contact Stephanie Ali – email@example.com for more information.
Other outreach work
Ahead of this year’s local, municipal elections in November, we’ll be partnering with groups such as Asian Americans Advancing Justice (AAAJ) and Center for Pan-Asian Community Services (CPACS) to ensure new American communities are aware of these elections and that they take part. Here is how you can help.
No prior training is needed for canvassing. You can sign up ahead of time to volunteer with New American Pathways for any of these efforts by contacting Stephanie Jackson Ali at – firstname.lastname@example.org or (404) 299-6099 ext. 268. Once you sign up, you’ll get more specific details ahead of any event.
