Leveraging the diversity of our communities to particularly engage New American voters and voters of color
While voter participation is central to our civic engagement program, FLIC also creates opportunities for those who cannot vote yet – such as youth and some immigrant groups – to participate in our Democracy, such as by joining mobilizations or through storytelling and consciousness-raising work.
Our Campaign Accomplishments
Ahead of the 2020 General Election, FLIC registered more than 60,000 new voters across six counties, making sure that those who are eligible to vote have an opportunity to cast a ballot for the issues affecting our communities. Our team of organizers, canvassers, and volunteers are reaching out to communities Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Volusia, Alachua, Pinellas and Seminole.
During the 2020 General Election, FLIC placed over 2.2 million calls and texts, reaching over 140,000 voters directly. During the 2020 General Election, FLIC was able to turn out over 160,000 voters, roughly 20,000 of them being newly- naturalized voters. Of those FLIC turned out 99% of thoseturned out for the General Election were Black and Brown voters.
During the August Primaries, we placed more than 1 million calls, and 118,197 voters from FLIC’s Civic Engagement outreach target voted in the 2020 Florida Primary. 32,556 of those were voters that FLIC directly engaged and made contact with via phone, text, or relational organizing (OutVote app). 88% of voters we turned out in August were Latinx and/or Black and Brown.
