APIAVote have an urgent need for bilingual individuals to volunteer for the national AAPI voter protection hotline. Please see below for more information about volunteering. This is a perfect opportunity for law students to volunteer! 
888-API-VOTE is a hotline offering assistance to voters in eight Asian languages! Volunteers are needed ASAP to assist voters with their questions. Volunteer shifts are four hours each during the conference and fairly easy. Simply keep your computer open in the background as you go about your day. Once you hear a chime, you know there’s a voter who needs your help. Volunteers are encouraged to sign up for multiple shifts. Once you sign up, NAPABA will reach out to you to get you trained.
