LARRP Ad-Hoc Committee on Voter Engagement
- To drastically increase voter registration and education efforts among LA County’s reentry population.
- To actively support the “Unlock the Vote” campaign inside LA County jails.
- To serve as a coordinating body for multiple CJ population voter engagement efforts among CBOs and County agencies.
- To serve as a voice and advocate for voter engagement resources from government and foundations.
In response to the February 13th Motion (MRT/SK) related to expanding voter engagement efforts among currently and formerly incarcerated populations; and following the tremendous success of the “Unlock the Vote” campaign to register and educate voters inside LA County jails; LARRP will support and enhance this critical county wide work by launching an Ad-Hoc Committee to expand voter engagement among LA County’s reentry population.
