National CAPACD piloted a Civic Engagement project with a core set of local community-based organizations to mobilize Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders to vote. The project provided funding, training, and support to 25 partner organizations in 14 states to work locally in conducting voter registration, get-out-the-vote activities, voter education, and leadership development for the 2012 elections.
