Mission statement

The Community Voters Project is a nonpartisan voter registration and get out the vote campaign working to correct this imbalance by helping thousands of new African American and Latino voters nationwide register to vote and then turning them out to the polls.[1]

History

CVP launched in 2004 and immediately helped 93,000 African American and Latino and low-income voters register to vote and made 62,500 GOTV contacts.

In 2008, CVP expanded to 57 offices in 10 states (Colorado, Florida, Michigan, Nevada, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin) and successfully registered 307,000 African American and Latino voters. In 2008, at its peak, the Community Voters Project had approximately 1,400 staff – 150 directors and 1,250 canvassers – pounding the pavement outside public transportation hubs, grocery stores, cultural events, social services offices and busy pedestrian thoroughfares.

In 2012, CVP built on its past successes by opening 19 offices, hiring and training a dedicated team of directors and canvassers and helping to register over 165,000 African American and Latino voters. CVP worked in four of those cities, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Columbus and Milwaukee, to turn out the African American vote.[1]
