Check Out The New Get Involved Video

You don’t have to wait for an election to act for what you believe in. Check out this new video from California Library Literacy Services leaders across the state about why they “Get Involved ” in their communities. It shows that people of all backgrounds care and are making a difference.

See the winning “Why Vote?” videos!

There are 17 million registered voters in California – but many of them do not exercise their right to vote, especially younger voters. The “Why Vote?” video contest for community college students featured eleven :30 videos vying to win $500 and be used as Public Service Announcements on statewide television to encourage greater turnout.

The videos were submitted by currently enrolled students in California’s community colleges – but the entire public participated in choosing the winner. You can click here to see all of the entries. Thanks to everyone who entered!
