An Assyrian Committee for Civic Responsibility (ACCR) was formed on Monday, May 7, 2002. The very same group coordinated voter registration drives and worked on campaigns for Peter Dagher and Rod Blagojevich earlier in the year. I am happy to report that we have re-convened again in order to continue the work and ensure that voter registration drives and awareness of political campaigns and candidates become part and parcel of the Assyrian community on a consistent and timely basis.
Our goal is combat apathy which happens to be a very deadly disease. It eats away at the very core of individuals and communities and destroys the will and spirit of nations to survive and maintain their identity and culture. Voter apathy is not excusable either. Hence, the role of the ACCR is to coordinate activities/ programs and write articles that promote public awareness of issues relative to voting, elections, political candidates and their platforms.
Our workload which begins in June through November 5th, is enormous and time sensitive. Your help in this regard is appreciated. What can you do? Simple. Help us spread the word and deliver our message to your family, friends, colleagues and the Assyrian community in general. We want to make sure that all eligible Assyrians are registered to vote in the state of Illinois. We are also looking for volunteers to help out with various tasts. If you know of anyone who would like to help out, please send an email message to our volunteer coordinators whose names appear below.
Information about Voter Registration Drive dates and time, site locations, voter eligibility, and types of forms to fill out will be sent during the first week of June. Below is the official list of ACCR members and their contact information.
