National Network for Arab American Communities (NNAAC) Intern
Before I get to the good stuff, I’d like to briefly introduce myself. My name is Becca, and I joined ACCESS earlier this year as an intern with the National Network for Arab American Communities (NNAAC), one of ACCESS' national institutions. I’m currently studying social work, and I hope to someday become involved in community organizing and policy, particularly around U.S. foreign policy related to immigration and global poverty. I feel really fortunate to be working with everyone here at NNAAC, and I am looking forward to learning more and engaging with the community over the next year.
And now for the main purpose of this post: voter registration!
We witnessed such an important presidential election this year and it was in the heat of it that I started my internship. My first task was working on voter registration. Although I am a big proponent of everyone participating in elections, I had never actually registered people before my internship at NNAAC. The first day I went out to register people I was at Monroe County Community College. I was surprised at how many people were eager to register, and in just three hours I had registered 24 new voters!
Join us to watch and discuss the first presidential debate between candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Candidates will be asked about “achieving prosperity,” “securing America" and “America’s direction."#TakeOnHateWithYourVote
