You can change the way your community votes.

Help 18MR.org design VoterVOX, a mobile app that connects bilingual AAPIs with limited English proficient voters in their communities to make sure every eligible voter has access to a translated ballot and voting information, for every election.

Can you be a designer? Of course you can. Collaborative design is a practice that empowers people, especially those without design backgrounds, to become designers. We believe in centering the needs of the people who will use the tools we build, and we’d love to have you be a part of the process.

Pairs of volunteer designers are invited to join us on Saturday, April 16 for a half-day workshop. An ideal pair is comprised of one potential voter who would prefer to vote with language assistance and one bilingual volunteer who could assist that voter with their ballot.

Lunch will be served. 18MR.org will reimburse for parking in the lot next door to the AAAJ-LA office.
