Join us for Tuesday's Voter Registration Training!

This year is an enormously important election year—both at the state and federal level.  But too many people in our communities remain disengaged from the political process.  Our challenge: registering and mobilizing thousands of voters to make our communities’ voices heard.

But what’s the most effective way to register voters?  And how can we develop enough people power to register thousands of people in our communities?  And how can we build a strong enough team to be successful?

We're holding a two-part training (June 12th and June 19th) will help you answer all of these critical questions.

150 strong at School Board Candidate Forum!

What a show of community support last night!  As part of our efforts to mobilize Brentwood residents around the upcoming school board elections, we held a candidate forum that focused on issues of diversity, school finances, and the school environment.  With wonderful community representatives sharing the stage with the candidates and asking excellent questions, and a remarkable 150 people in attendance, the event was a huge hit! 

Check out photos of last night's big event here!

That’s why we are getting started this Saturday to mobilize as many voters as we can! Can we count on you to join us to contact Brentwood residents about this critical election?  If so, please click here and RSVP.   Here are the details:
