New Mexico Vote Matters
Thursday August 2nd, 2012, 3:30 pm to 4:45 pm
Albuquerque: St. John's Episcopal Church, 318 Silver Avenue SW
Please join this one hour workshop to learn how to inform your clients on how to register to vote and why it is important to do so. You will also learn how New Mexico Vote Matters can work directly with your agency on voter registration.
Individuals and families who are struggling with financial situations and life crisis often rely on affordable housing, healthcare, and social services to achieve stability. The continuity of these services mostly depends on political decisions decided by electoral votes. Yet, the people who most need these services often encounter challenges when trying to participate in the democratic process and don’t make it to the polls. These challenges include logistical obstacles as well as the mistaken belief that they do not have the right to vote.
As part of its advocacy mission, the New Mexico Coalition to End Homelessness wants to insure the voices of homeless people are heard, so that people experiencing homelessness can be involved in promoting policies that end homelessness.
