Protect and Promote the Vote: Barriers to Voting Among Minority Populations

5:30 pm — 6:30 pm

Online event

This event will be two-fold:

First, we will have a conversation with Monica Ruiz, Executive Director of Casa San Jose, about the barriers to voting for racial, ethnic and other minority groups in Allegheny County. 

Through NCJW’s partnership with Vote Forward, we will then work together to increase civic participation by sending letters to voters from the comfort of our home! These letters will be sent to unregistered and low-propensity voters encouraging them to participate in our democracy.  Confirmed guests will receive information on how to use Vote Forward’s templates to write and send letters.
