CAUSE Partners with APALC for 'Your Vote Matters! 2012"
We are proud to announce our partnership with the Asian Pacific American Legal Center (APALC) for its "Your Vote Matters! 2012" civic engagement campaign. This program was launched to empower and mobilize community members to exercise their voice at the ballot box, with a push to support Proposition 30 in the November 6th elections. CAUSE is one of the many non-profits collaborating with APALC to get members of the API community out to vote (please note that since we are a non-partisan organization, we are NOT advocating for the support of particular candidates or for the support of propositions, like Prop 30).
