Celebrating Two Great Years of NAVP
The New American Voters Project just turned 2! We took the opportunity to gather volunteers, team leads and organizational staff, and our fabulous Secretary of State, Kate Brown to celebrate the success of this great program. We also honored Evelyn Sahli from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services office, a champoin of this program from the start. After many years of public service, she is retiring this year. Thank you, Evy!
And the award goes to...
In 2013, the National Association of Secretaries of State honored the New American Voters Project for their work in helping newly naturalized citizens to register to vote. The Medallion Award recognizes innovative voter education and engagement work going on all over the country.
New American Voters Project
In February 2012, three organizations came together to help to register the United States' newest citizens. Each day, New American Voters Project volunteers from Causa, Center for Intercultural Organizing and APANO gather at the United States Center for Immigration Services to help to register people who have become citizens that very day. After a three-month pilot, NAVP is now a regular, committed part of the ceremony's festivities.
With the goal of creating a joint, targeted approach to civic engagement in 2012, Oregon Voice hosted a new training series: Collaborative Action Planning (CAP), facilitated by Lisa Horowitz of StrategyWorks NW.
In 2010, Oregon Voice's first election year, partner groups registered thousands of Oregonians to vote and activated a huge GOTV effort. Go ahead: take a trip down memory lane.
