As co-chairs of the NBA Election Protection Task Force, we ask for your support in the NBA’s voter and election protection initiatives. We heard President CK Hoffler charge to battle this pandemic which threatens the 2020 elections and our democracy.
Because of your dynamic role in the community, we know that you understand what’s at stake. We ask that NBA chapter affiliates take the lead on initiatives under the NBA umbrella in your local area through these simple yet critical steps. First, please share this communication with your larger local and state bar associations, and second, encourage each member of your chapter to volunteer. For this initiative to be successful, we need every chapter and every member to participate.
As a lawyer dedicated to social justice, we know your commitment to promoting and preserving democracy and the true meaning of “one man, one vote.” We ask you to volunteer in a meaningful way to assist in the voter and election protection. Please volunteer to work as a hotline team leader, rapid responder for pleading drafting and/or litigation filing, and/or as a field program poll watcher/monitor.
Lawyers serve a special role in protecting and preserving democracy. Certain tasks can only be done by lawyers, placing us in great demand. Please let us know the efforts underway in your communities and how your members are engaged in those efforts. Please click on the link here to report. It is important that we can properly track and count the pro bono efforts of member lawyers on voter protection. If you have any questions, please contact us. We are a team; we are here to help.
As you work with coalition partners, know that you can come to us with any questions or to note any challenges or problems. Please contact us by sending an email to email@example.com or call the NBA office at 202-842-3900. You can also complete the form at the bottom of this page, and we will respond as soon as possible.
