Immediate Opportunity to Make a Difference

The Community Voters Project is immediately hiring Citizen Outreach Directors to run non-partisan grassroots voter registration offices through October 2012. Help make a change by helping register African American voters. Here in Wisconsin an estimated 80,000, or 41%, of eligible African Americans are not registered to vote, and registering to vote is the first step in active participation in our democracy.
