Want to get involved in TIRRC's 2012 Civic Engagement work?
Become a Volunteer!
TIRRC is looking for volunteers to support our efforts to engage New American voters in the election this year. Through door-to-door canvasses, phone banking, poll-watching and events, volunteers will engage with Nashville’s diverse immigrant community in conversations about the importance of voting, how to vote, and issues of importance to the immigrant community.
- No experience necessary, all volunteers will receive training.
- Volunteer shifts are in Nashville Tuesday-Thursday evenings, Saturday all day, and Sunday afternoons
- Volunteer shifts are 4 hours each
Become a Poll Watcher!
The people of Tennessee could use your help. The right to vote and choose our leaders is at the heart of what it means to be an American, but some are working to rewrite our laws and set up barriers at the ballot box. Won't you volunteer as a poll watcher to make sure that any Tennessean who wants to can exercise this fundamental freedom?
