FIRM is partnering with Faith in the Valley to get out the vote via a phone banking campaign to promote the importance of participating in the upcoming election on November 3, 2020. Volunteer shifts are available in the evenings and on Saturdays.
We need more volunteers! Please join us. Contact Vechhany@firminc.org to find out how.
Encouraging our community to vote is important because even though voting is not a requirement in the US, free elections are among the backbone supports of our country and the democratic process. People who came to the US as refugees and immigrants, as well as our children and grandchildren who have lived their whole lives here have a right and responsibility to have their voices heard. In Fresno County, everyone has received their ballots by mail and the official drop boxes are now open!
FIRM continues its educational mission to inform the refugee and immigrant community with our Citizenship Support Program. So far in 2020, we have helped almost 50 individuals apply for citizenship.
