The Participation Project
We believe in the power of the nonprofit vote to build a more inclusive and just Colorado and are thrilled to kick off our 2020 nonpartisan voter engagement efforts. This work is especially critical as we navigate the impacts of COVID 19 in our most vulnerable communities. Voter registration and participation allows underrepresented people throughout the state to have a voice on ballot initiatives and policy decisions that affect them directly. Now more than ever, the nonprofit sector must work to connect and engage the communities we serve.
The Participation Project provides training, resources, and mini-grants to nonprofits to elevate their nonpartisan civic engagement efforts and we have adapted our program to offer virtual trainings and online resources. Nonprofits can participate at varying levels depending on your capacity.
National Voter Registration Day, Tuesday, September 22
National Voter Registration Day is a nonpartisan civic holiday celebrating our democracy. Nearly 3 million voters have registered to vote on the holiday since 2012. It is not too late to get involved. Your organization can participate in a number of ways and we are here to support you with trainings, materials, and guidance.
