Transforming Nonprofits Into a Force for Democracy
In neighborhoods across New York City, Community Votes is helping social service agencies turn move citizens into voters. Community Votes was formed to help nonprofits register and educate voters. The time to expand voting is now.
Louisa Hackett founded Community Votes in 2013. Through her work at Community Resource Exchange providing consulting services to New York City nonprofit organizations, she recognized the assets direct service organizations have to turn more citizens into voters.
