Lunch and Learn: Why Do We Vote?
July 9 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Join us for a special voter education series that seeks to bring community members together to create informed and educated voters throughout Allegheny County. These hybrid programs will take place in Carnegie Library locations across the city as well as on Zoom, and focus on the following initiatives: Voter empowerment and why votes matter, voter education and the issues most relevant to the community, two meet-the-candidates sessions and a post-election debrief on the power of voting and how next year’s sessions could be better.
About the Presenter: VEEEM is a faith-based nonprofit with a mission of increasing voter turnout in Allegheny County, especially in underserved communities with lower voter turnout rates. Through education and outreach efforts, the Voter Empowerment, Education and Enrichment Movement (VEEEM) seeks to strengthen community participation in decision making and engage potential voters in local, state and national elections.
Note: All in-person attendees will receive a complimentary boxed lunch. Virtual attendees will receive a gift card comparable to the boxed lunch immediately following the program. Registration is required and supplies is limited.
