Thanks to our state partnership with the New England Literacy Resource Center (NELRC), we are pleased to share this PD session on the History of Voting Rights & Introduction to the Voter Education, Registration, and Action (VERA) campaign of 2024.

The VERA campaign of 2024 is a nonpartisan effort designed for adult education programs in the New England states. Its goal is to educate adult learners about voting and current election issues and mobilize them to vote in the 2024 election.

Because this PD is being offered by NELRC, please register here rather than on the SABES Calendar.


    This professional development activity/course is designed for:

  • Adult education program directors and instructors who wish to provide learners with access to nonpartisan information and resources related to the 2024 election and civics education

Join NELRC for this one-hour webinar introducing the 2024 VERA Campaign with a focus on the history of voting rights. We will explore ways to integrate current events and election-related content into your classroom. We will alsoprovide students with concrete ways to participate in civics and impact policies that affect everyday life. 

You will leave with multilevel (intermediate to advanced) interactive resources about the history of voting rights and add to your knowledge of U.S. history and current events.
