Project TEAL hosts monthly campaigns to further raise awareness of pressing issues, empower students to become politically involved, and promote our mission.
Stand Against Voter Suppression
Stand Against Voter Suppression is a Project TEAL campaign dedicated to addressing the increase in voter suppression measures since the 2020 election. After former President Donald Trump falsely claimed rampant election fraud had occurred, legislatures all over the country began drafting legislation to restrict voting accessibility. We believe these bills present a challenge to American democracy and will further political apathy. Project TEAL has created this campaign to ensure youth voices are heard in the decision making regarding our accessibility to voting in the future and those of disadvantaged communities.
Join us on April 30th at 5:00 EST for an email/phonebanking event to voice your concerns and resistance towards these voter suppression bills in your state. Activists will be supplied and prepared with the resources they need to be successful lobbyists. Sign up with the link in our Instagram's bio area and access Project TEAL's resources, such as our interactive legislative advocacy directory with all pending legislation in state legislatures. Make sure to follow our Instagram account for more on this campaign on Project TEAL.
As part of the Stand Against Voter Suppression campaign, Project TEAL compiled resources for activists to foster a better understanding of the history of voter suppression in the United States.
