We advocate for civic engagement through voter education, registration, access, but with an additional emphasis placed on civic engagement. We turn design skills and aspirations into tangible actions that can make a difference.
Building Community Power
Developed with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and a partnership with Nonprofit VOTE, the project will encourage designers to yield the vote by building deeper civic engagement—including voter registration, election reminders, voter education—to lead to greater understanding of the political issues at stake, in anticipation of the midterm elections of November 2018. The project features two components, and both aim to always provide clear communications on the why you need to vote, how, where, and when.
Get Out the Vote
Every four years AIGA and the League of Women Voters invite members to create nonpartisan posters and videos inspire the American public to vote. In 2016, this civic engagement initiative produced 727 original posters, a video with Edwards James Olmos to connect the Latino community and countless chapter-led events activated local communities for the general and local elections to come. See all the posters and videos from AIGA’s Get Out the Vote campaigns available online to download, print and share.
