ICAN’s Voter Registration Work Makes the News

NWFCO affiliate Idaho Community Action Network (ICAN) is part of a newly-formed coalition, the Canyon County Latino Voter Collaborative, working to educate and ensure that Latino community members register and vote, as well as participate in other activities such as advocacy. On a recent weekend in July, more than 30 young Latino community members participated in a two-day event organized by the coalition and the event garnered coverage by the local news.

The collaborative, which also includes Community Council of Idaho, Catholic Charities of Idaho, Mujeres Unidas de Idaho, Center for Community and Justice and the Idaho Hispanic Caucus, plans to register 1,500 new voters by October 8, 2010.
