Political and Election Empowerment Project

We work with national nonprofit organizations fighting for voting rights. We focus our efforts on historically marginalized and oppressed populations across the country. Our work has previously addressed re-districting efforts that would disenfranchise poor voters and voters of color, voter roll purges, and election monitoring. We have been primarily a research-based SLP with a focus on legal and historical research and on writing letters and legal memos. We hope to expand our work this year to include more community-facing efforts such as “Know Your Rights” workshops and working at polls. This work is especially crucial with the impending 2020 presidential election and that’s at the top of our minds.

Supervision: Students in PEEP will be under the supervision of attorneys at the Campaign Legal Center.

Time Commitment: A 15-hour commitment per semester. Research can be done at meetings or on your own. Non-research opportunities are available but not required. 

For more information, please contact the student leaders at peep@berkeley.edu.
