November 4, 2008 SSP Election Day
The Secondary School Program participated in a nationwide event hosted by the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund (AALDEF) to promote Asian American awareness to voting rights and concerns. We had 23 youth volunteers outside for half the day asking voters to fill out surveys, provide language services, and participate in the election day procedures. The youth realized the importance of their vote and how much Asian American voters are needed to adequately represent the population. The youth are to be applauded as it was raining in DC and they withstood the rain in the name of civic education.
