Alpha Kappa Alpha-Theta Pi Omega Chapter C.A.R.ES. about voter education and registration
Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. cares about the communities we serve and the Theta Pi Omega chapter is taking part in Alpha Kappa Alpha’s yearlong voter registration and education offensive to reach, mobilize and impact hundreds of thousands of citizens throughout our service area. The campaign will be driven by the theme: Alpha Kappa Alpha C.A.R.E.S., an acronym for Collaborate, Advocate, Register, Educate, and Stimulate.Theta Pi Omega chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., joined by other Greek letter organizations will be hosting a voter registration drive at the Rand Transportation Center in the downtown section of Camden, New Jersey. The drive will be held on Saturday, October 6, 2012, from 2:00pm – 4:00pm.
The national initiative is to be carried out by actively encouraging eligible citizens to vote. It is also aimed at sending an important message to local, state, and federal leadership in order to promote change and progress. In addition, the C.A.R.E.S. initiative is also committed to providing voter education and helping informed voters get to the polls.
The Sorority has an award-winning legacy of mobilizing, and registering record numbers. This is rooted in the relationship its members and chapters have with the communities they serve. This bond has enabled the Sorority to penetrate areas that have been difficult to reach. On the
strength of these connections, the campaign is expected to expand its reach and add record-setting numbers to the voter rolls.
To maximize the campaign’s effectiveness, Alpha Kappa Alpha will collaborate with like-minded organizations that are committed to C.A.R.E.S’ mission. In partnership with Alpha Kappa Alpha, there will be an aggressive effort launched to make sure that citizens understand the Electoral College, know their rights and can comprehend the dynamics of the voting rolls and voter registry process. Empowered with this information and these tools, they will be more informed, educated and capable of making decisions that will determine their destiny.
