Voter Resources

Voter registration, voter engagement and fair access to democratic participation was and remains a huge part of the civil rights movement and is the reason why it has been a focal part of our work at Asian Americans Advancing Justice – Atlanta since the start. Inspired by the leaders (Fannie Lou Hamer!), groups and volunteers who worked together in Mississippi in the 1960's for a campaign now known as Freedom Summer, we also approach voter registration and engagement as grassroots community organizing. Organizing newly naturalized immigrant and refugee Americans to vote requires a mix of motivation and education.
