Assist voters with documents to get voter ID!

Enable voters to get ID to cast a ballot that counts.

Posted March 28, 2023

Background & Context

More states are passing stricter voter ID laws everyday disenfranchising voters and creating confusion. Getting ID to vote is complicated and obtaining a birth certificate is often difficult without ID and that's where you come in...

Immediate Problem

Not only do we help get people the ID and underlying documents they need to vote but also to get housing, healthcare, a job, etc.

Work & Deliverables

We are looking for attorneys with active bar admission in our focus states (AZ, FL, GA, MI, NC, OH, PA, TX, VA, WI, as well as IL, NY, NJ, SC and Puerto Rico) to assist clients who need to obtain their birth certificate but lack the requisite ID to complete the order. Counsel is needed to represent the client for the limited purpose of obtaining the birth certificate. We will pay the costs for the birth certificate.
