At Spokes we believe one way nonprofits can move closer to achieving their missions is by speaking up and voting in elections. That’s why we’ve pledged to Vote with Your Mission, a new campaign initiated by CalNonprofits to have 100% of all eligible nonprofit staff, board members, and volunteers vote. Spokes is proud to be one of the first 100 nonprofits to sign on to Vote with Your Mission, and we believe that our powerful Central Coast nonprofit community has the power to grow this number exponentially.
The June 5 election is next Tuesday!
