Yalla Vote 2014

Since its creation in 1998, Yalla Vote has become the cornerstone of our voter mobilization and education work, and has been adopted by countless communities across the country to run voter registration drives, organize town hall meetings and coordinate GOTV efforts. AAI is proud to welcome the National Network for Arab American Communities as a Yalla Vote partner.
