Voter Participation

Why #IDEAVotes

Voting is the single most effective way to make your voice as a member of our society heard. When we all vote, we serve as role models for our students, so they become voters too. IDEA is committed to ensuring all of our eligible scholars, staff, and family members make their voices heard by participating in voting during every election cycle. 

Learn about first-time IDEA Voters and how they showed up during early voting in the 2020 General election.

Census Education

Why the Census Matters

The Census results will determine how many seats in Congress each state gets. When IDEA communities are undercounted, they are underrepresented. Census results help determine how billions of dollars in federal funding flow into states and communities each year. Essential neighborhood resources like health clinics, school lunches for children in need, and housing for seniors and families will all be gained or lost because of the results of the 2020 Census.

The IDEA Advocacy Team prioritized helping families complete the Census by sharing webinars on how to complete the Census, sharing information with campuses, and partnering with our CNP Team to hand out Census information with our breakfast and lunch bundles.
