The Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund (AALDEF), founded in 1974, is a national organization that protects and promotes the civil rights of Asian Americans. This summer, AALDEF will be conducting a series of street-based voter registration drives in various neighborhoods in New York City and East Brunswick, New Jersey. We need your help to register Asian Americans to vote. Volunteers with Chinese, Korean, Bengali, Hindi, or Punjabi language skills are especially helpful, though not necessary.
All volunteers must be non-partisan during the time that they help. There will be a short training for all volunteers on rules to know when conducting voter registration drives. If your organization is interested in participating in one or more registration drives this summer, please contact AALDEF Voting Rights Organizer, Chi-Ser Tran, immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org with the date(s) of choice and the number of volunteers your organization will be able to provide. Please direct all questions to Chi-Ser.

____Thursday, June 28, 2012: Elmhurst, Queens (5-6:30 pm)
____Friday, June 29, 2012: Richmond Hill, Queens (5-6:30 pm)
