Now that 2014 has come to a close, we’re looking back at what an eventful year it was! From our work to empower individuals and organizations on the ground, to important voting rights victories in the courts, we celebrate the accomplishments of Project Vote and our allies in 2014, and we’re ready to keep up the fight in 2015.
For 20 years now, Project Vote has been on the front lines of voter engagement: working hard to bring meaningful voter registration assistance to youth, people of color, and lower-income Americans. Today, I want to draw your attention to a recent article that confirms how impactful this work is.
“We are grateful for Senator Durbin’s leadership in convening this hearing. The end of a Congress is indeed a good time to take stock: of progress made, of work left undone, of prospects for the future. With the imminent change in the balance of power, the end of this Congress is a particularly good time. We will restrict our comments to issues related to the right to vote in this country, though of course there are many other civil and human rights to be considered by the Subcommittee.
