Every summer a group of high school and college students from the Odell Center in Washington and the MLK Freedom Center in Oakland, spend time in a targeted location to engage in non-partisan voter outreach and education while receiving daily instruction on civic engagement.
In July 2016, the group came to Kern County and participated in the Dolores Huerta Foundation’s #GETLOUD Voter Registration Drive, a county-wide effort focused on registering as many new voters as possible before the general election in November.
