We are excited to announce the launch of “Your Power is Your Vote,” Courage California Institute's new initiative to support young people, people of color, and other high potential voters to register and vote, with confidence, in the general election -- and beyond.

At couragecaliforniainstitute.org, Californians will be able to find all the voter education information and voter resources needed to ensure everyone is able to vote in the 2020 General Election. 

As an official launch of "Your Power is Your Vote," Courage California Institute will host a virtual town hall, open to the public. Your Power is Your Vote: California Informational Voting Town Hall will feature a discussion about the changes to California's voting process during the pandemic, how everyone can vote safely, and how to ensure your vote is received and counted! The panel will include various organizational partners from throughout the state, who will speak on the challenges and solutions occuring in their communities. 

We all deserve to live in a world where information that impacts our communities is easily available, accessible, and accurate.

This year has been filled with enough doubt, confusion, and hardship. It is our right to elect the representatives we need to lead us, especially now, through these difficult times. The combination of COVID, the resulting economic downturn, and the uprising against systemic racism and state sanctioned violence against our BIPOC communities have exposed how unequal and unjust our society is. It has also revealed how ill-equipped many of our elected leaders are when it comes to representing and advocating for our communities. “Your Power is Your Vote” leverages proven digital expertise to defeat voter suppression efforts. With Courage, we can get unregistered voters on the rolls and to the polls!

Visit Courage California Institute to register to vote, check and/or update your voter registration, learn about key dates, and find answers to Calfornians frequently asked questions.
