Pirates Vote

CLCE works in a non-partisan way with partners such as the Andrew Goodman Foundation (AGF) and the Campus Vote Project (CVP) to bring programming to students that encourages them to be engaged in our democracy and active responsible citizens.  Programs include voter registration tabling events and presentations, opportunities for civil dialogue, and a citizens’ academy (Citizen U)!
