The VERA campaign of 2020 is a non-partisan effort designed for adult education programs in the New England states. Its goal is to educate adult learners about voting and current election issues, and mobilize them to vote in the 2020 elections.
In this webinar, the NELRC team will introduce you to the VERA campaign, website, and resources you can use to adopt VERA in your program.
Because this PD is being offered by NELRC, please register here rather than on the SABES calendar.
