About the Voter Engagement Campaign
People in low income communities in America, for whom publicly-funded programs provide essential services, are voting at a rate much lower than people in wealthier communities.
The Right Question Institute (RQI), building upon its decades of creative educational work, has designed a deceptively simple and powerful resource that can help ensure that people who are most affected by decisions made by elected officials will have a say in who gets to make those decisions.
Our “Why Vote?” campaign aims to get RQI’s resources into the hands of one million citizens who are not regular voters or have not voted at all. We will support the use of these resources by thousands of direct service agencies, including literacy and job training programs, early childhood and community health centers, legal aid clinics, parent engagement and faith- and community-based organizations, homeless and domestic violence shelters, food banks, affordable housing networks, and more. The Right Question Institute is an equal opportunity employer strongly committed to hiring a diverse and multicultural staff.
