AFG Rock The Vote!!
Give the power to vote
We passionately believe that voting empowers individuals, and the people we serve more than anyone else needs to know the importance of their voice and their vote. Part of AFG's mission is to provide our participants resources and opportunities to grow strong and make positive choices in their lives. We want to empower our participants to see themselves as citizens whose opinion matters and whose vote will make a difference.
Your gift of $50 will help us to hold our Voter Registration Drive at AFG on August 8th from 11am - 3pm. We are not promoting one party or another; we are just educating our community on the importance of voting and providing them the opportunity to register that day. We are working hard to publicize this event not only to our AFG participants but to all community members in Southwest Detroit. We have a full program planned, along with the registration drive. We will have a presentation from the Detroit Department of Elections on voter rights and the new voting machines. We will have music, poetry readings, and performances all related to the importance of voting. We will have free food for everyone and prizes and give-a-ways for those who register to vote. Your gift will allow us to buy the food, gift cards, and prizes. Your help is crucial for our registration drive because a successful drive means more individuals who realize his or her voice matters. We greatly appreciate your support on this important project!
