New Haven Votes Coalition present a workshop for all non-profits, facilated by Renae Reese of the CT Center for a New Economy and Lourdes Montalvo from the Secretary of the State's office.
"Non-profits and direct service providers frequently work with low-income clients that rely on government assistance programs. They are also among the most disenfranchised populations, and therefore don't have a say in shaping the policies that directly impact their lives and the programs on which they rely.
There is so much non-profits can do to change this, yet most don't have a good sense of the non-partisan laws governing 501(c)3 voter registration and civic outreach. That's exactly why we've put together this informative training. We'll cover the law so you're organization is covered! We'll also strategize simple, low-resource ways tailored to help you and your organization do their part to increase civic particpation. Please come and spread the word in your networks!
Follow-up assistance, training and resources to help you implement what you learn in the workshop will also be available."
