Civic Engagement

Our “Your Vision Your Vote” Campaign boosted civic engagement. In a year when the election system was threatened by deep budget cuts, a volunteer shortage, and the chronic problem of low turnout, we inspired people to take civic responsibility. We organized 350 volunteers to work at polling places across Oahu in the 2010 Primary and General Elections. More than 80% of participants were high school students from public and private schools. Moreover, we also registered almost 500 new voters focusing on those underrepresented in our democratic process: young people, the homeless, and those living in affordable housing communities.
