This year, NHSA and NAACP "have announced an
historic joint initiative aimed at empowering the country's most vulnerable
families by facilitating voter registration..." (NAACP press release,
January 19, 2016). We are proud to say
that Cornell Brooks, NAACP President, is a Head Start alumnus!
A core directive of the recent NHSA/NAACP MOU is to
organize voter registration drives at Head Start centers, providing parents
with crucial tools and information about the voting process, and to share
helpful resources about how to register and how to vote.
Please note that the deadline this year for voter
registration is October 11, 2016. The
election is November 8.
We encourage you to make contact with the local NAACP, if
there is one in your area.
