Nonprofit VOTE

Nonprofit VOTE was founded in 2005 by a consortium of state nonprofit associations and national nonprofit networks to provide resources and trainings for the nonprofit sector on how to conduct nonpartisan voter participation and election activities. Nonprofit VOTE partners with America's nonprofits to help the people they serve participate and vote. We are the largest source of nonpartisan resources to help nonprofits integrate voter engagement into their ongoing activities and services.

Voting Rights and Support for People with Felony Convictions

Organizer: Nonprofit VOTE

Restoration of voting rights for ex-felons has been in the news recently, especially with the passage of Amendment 4 in Florida in 2018 (and subsequent legal and legislative challenges). But zooming out, we see that across the country there is a confusing patchwork of laws for people who have a felony conviction in their past. Join us as we learn from Jon Sherman, Senior Counsel at Fair Elections Center, about current laws regarding felon re-enfranchisement, where and why laws have changed in the past couple of years, and where you can direct individuals for more information and support. Lending a field perspective will be Samuel Gross, a board member for Revive My Vote, a nonpartisan student organization at William & Mary Law School that helps Virginians regain their right to vote after completing the terms of their incarceration.

Nonprofits Count 2020: Messaging Campaigns

Organizer: Nonprofit VOTE

The 2020 Census is right around the corner for most of us and counting of remote communities has already begun. How are you ensuring that your clients and community are fully counted? Participation in the census is vital to ensure that federal funding is allocated where it is most needed, but the Census can seem confusing and doesn't come around very often. An effective messaging campaign can make the difference between being counted and being left out... for the next 10 years.

Join us as we feature speakers from two excellent Census messaging campaigns. Jeri Green from National Urban League will share with us resources and news from the Make Black Count campaign. From NALEO Educational Fund, Adan Chavez, Deputy Director of National Census Program for their ¡Hágase Contar! campaign will also be on hand to talk about their work, trainings, and other activations.

A new trend in election reform is sweeping municipalities and states across the country. Ranked choice voting is a different way to hold elections and allow people to have their choices represented in office. But it can sound a little complicated- at first!

Get a thorough understanding of RCV - how it works, where it's happening, and why it can be a more effective model for electing candidates to office. Drew Penrose, Law and Policy Director at FairVote, will be our featured speaker and answering your questions about ranked choice voting.

Census 2020: Nonprofits can shape the future

Organizer: Nonprofit VOTE

Over $800 billion in federal government resources will be allocated EVERY YEAR based on the 2020 Census. Health centers, early childhood education, and other vital resources our communities depend on will be impacted by the count. Nonprofits have a stake in making sure the communities they represent get their fair share by being fully counted this spring. Whether you have a staff of 2 or 200, work with urban or rural populations, and regardless of the services you provide, there are actionable steps you can take now and over the coming months to encourage full participation in the Census.

Join us for a webinar on Census messaging and activities you can use to build buy in from your staff and board and trust in Census participation among your clients. RSVP today to automatically receive slides, recording, and other resources from this webinar.
