The Humphreys Institute believes that social workers and nonprofit agencies play an important role in civic engagement and voter mobilization. Social workers often work with the communities that are most underrepresented, including young people, minority and low-income populations.
We encourage all nonprofit agencies to actively support nonpartisan voter registration, education and outreach. When people vote, there are benefits to themselves and their communities, including higher levels of civic participation, stronger connections within communities and better outcomes for the individual voters themselves, including in areas like health and well-being. Voting is basic expression of power and an overlooked human right.
Each year, the Institute hosts a school-wide voter registration drive and provides the education and tools for each MSW student to register voters at the agencies at which they are placed.
Please contact the Humphreys Institute if you have questions regarding voter registration (860-570-9262, firstname.lastname@example.org).
