“How Localism Helps Democracy and Keeps Us Safe”
Thank you to our network. Solidarity to you wherever you are as you fight for a better world for all of us.
Community leaders and organizers understand the importance of knowing their neighbors in order to win on issues that have an impact on us all. When is the right time to strengthen your local connections? Who benefits when local communities share values that benefit us all and why? Join Indivisible Illinois and ILVOTE co-founder Leni Manaa-Hoppenworth for a presentation on Empowering Communities for Public Safety followed by an open discussion around local elections and how to get involved in your community right now.
ILVOTE is certified through the Illinois State Board of Elections as a bona fide State Civic Organization for voter registration purposes. In addition, ILVOTE works to increase voter awareness and promote voter turnout for every election at the federal, state and local levels. We achieve our goals by working in coalition with other grassroots partners to host forums, deputy voter registrar trainings and voter registration drives that are open to all. We encourage individuals to take initiative and do voter registration and awareness whenever possible in their daily lives. We believe that an engaged and informed electorate leads to a successful democracy.
To establish certification for ILVOTE in your jurisdiction and to find out how you and members of your community can become deputy voter registrars through your election authority, please contact Leni Manaa-Hoppenworth at [email protected]
We come from different backgrounds and walks of life, we have different stories, but we are united in the belief that we can achieve more when we stand together. The name Indivisible is rooted in this idea – that our power lies in showing up together, the notion that if we stand together, we won’t fall.
