Register New Citizens to Vote - May 20
Nationally, Bend the Arc is working towards fixing Voting Rights and passing Comprehensive Immigration Reform. As a way to connect the two issues locally, we are registering new citizens to vote moments after they take the oath of citizenship to the United States. Bend the Arc began this effort in June 2014, and it was a deeply inspiring experience. We are now doing this every month through 2015. Being someone’s first point of civic engagement is incredibly powerful. We hope it’s something we can continue with you!
Location: LA Convention Center - 1201 South Figueroa Street, Los Angeles, CA 90015
Date: Wednesday, May 20, 2015
Shift 1 - Morning: 8:45am-11:00am

There are two naturalization ceremonies that take place during the day. These shifts also include time allocated for setting up/cleaning up of the tables. You can choose to volunteer for one or both of the shifts.
Training: There will be a brief instructional session held at the beginning of each shift. We will debrief you on the structure of the day, on the voter registration form itself, and the best way to help the new citizens to complete the form.
