Fil-Am lawyers roll out voter protection program in 3 states
LOS ANGELES — The National Filipino American Lawyers Association announced its first ever Voter Protection Program (VoPro). The NFALA VoPro is a national non-partisan effort designed to protect the vote and rights of voters for the upcoming 2020 General Election.
They will be available to answer questions via phone, email, or text from voters in three key states where there are large concentrations of Filipinos—California, Arizona, and Nevada. The volunteers have undergone extensive training that will allow them to understand and address specific questions on the voting process.
The program officially opens for questions from voters on Monday, October 12, 2020 and will run until election day, Tuesday, November 3, 2020. For more information about the program, as well as how to contact NFALA, visit www.nfala.com/VoPro.
“2020 has brought about significant change in our daily lives, but it has not taken away our right, and the community’s right, to let our voices be heard,” says Philip Nulud, President of NFALA. “Voting is even more important now than ever. We want to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to exercise their right to vote.
