Voting is the cornerstone of democracy. Through our registration drives, collaborations with NYC Votes and the NYC Campaign Finance Board, and advocacy trips to Albany, Coalition Z has worked hard to protect our right to the ballot in the past. With the 2018 midterms approaching, we're ramping up our efforts to advance voting rights and register our peers.
voter registration drives
Coalition Z has worked with members to ensure that chapters hold voter registration drives at their school and in their communities in advance of the 2018 midterms. We provide forms, stickers, and other materials to chapters who need supplies for their drives, and also advise chapter leaders on how to register their peers.
voter day in albany
Every spring, Coalition Z partners with the New York City Campaign Finance board to bring groups of high school students to Albany to lobby for voting rights. Students lead their own meetings with elected officials, participate in a press conference, and attend a legislative session. This year, the organization was even recognized on the floor of the New York State Assembly.
