Voter Protection Program

NAPABA Launches 2018 Voter Protection Program

Building on our successful and continuing efforts to encourage lawyers to engage in pro bono voter protection efforts, NAPABA is expanding its Voter Protection Program for 2018 to promote non-partisan voter registration and  protection in the Asian Pacific American community.

In partnership with APIAVote, a national, non-partisan, non-profit organization focused on increasing Asian Pacific American voter engagement, NAPABA will help local Asian Pacific American bar associations and Asian Pacific American law student association implement non-partisan voter registration and protection programs in their local communities. As part of the NAPABA Voter Protection Program, we will continue to partner with leading Asian Pacific American voting rights programs, such as the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund (AALDEF), to provide opportunities for lawyers and law students to engage in voter protection for limited English proficient voters at the polls.
