WHAT:
Help register eligible voters and encourage community members to vote in this year’s primary and general elections! We’ll be phone banking from May to November to support our community in registering to vote, understanding their ballots, and reminding them to cast their ballot. It’s ok if you haven’t phone banked before because each shift includes training, calling scripts, food and a supportive team!

WHEN:
Monday June 19 through Thursday June 22nd from 5:00-8:00pm every night

WHO:
Anyone who wants to help is welcome! If you speak an Asian or Pacific Islander language, you are strongly encouraged to join us.

WHY:
There are approximately 97,000 Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) people in Washington state who are eligible to vote, but haven’t registered to do so. Historically, we’ve seen that AAPIs are rarely contacted by political campaigns or advocacy groups working to educate the public on issues. A personal contact can influence a person to take action, so the phone call you’ll make will could help a community member register to vote, and then vote during the next election. Come learn more about why AAPI voters matter!

HOW TO JOIN:
Sign-up here: volunteersignup.org/QCATJ. After you sign-up, we’ll contact you shortly before your volunteer shift.

Please contact Monica Ng at [email protected] if you have any other questions.
