Vote for our Future MVP Ballot Party!

We will have our voices be heard!

2020 has been a year to remember, but let’s all make sure we get our Ballots in for the 2020 Election! We want to show appreciation for all of our volunteers and let them know how important they are to us. We also are going to go over not only the importance of filling out the Ballot, but also giving some pointers on how to fill it out and make sure your voice is heard. Oh yeah, we’re going to have some special guests as well! Let’s come together to make the change we want to see in our neighborhoods and community!

All of Us Count

We are getting our community to represent California by participating in the Census! Making over a hundred thousand calls in 9 days alone, our partners have been talking with 15,116 voters  of color – youth, first-generation immigrants, Vietnamese American and Latinx voters – living in hard-to-count areas throughout Orange County. Of the voters reached, 43% pledged to participate in the Census, while another 55% shared that they already completed the census.

Because the Coronavirus crisis prevented us from canvassing voters door-to-door, we are reaching out via mail to 26,229 voters who have no phone numbers on record and would therefore be harder to reach. Hundreds of voters are then able to get in touch with us through prepaid mail, phone hotline, text messages, or through an online form.
