About The Event

Memphis Urban League Young Professionals (MULYP) will partner with Memphis Urban League, The US Census Bureau, and UT Students National Pharmaceutical Association to host a Voter Registration/Census Caravan and Neighborhood Clean Up event.   This will feature a caravan through one of the lowest Census count areas of Memphis (Frayser community) where drivers will decorate their cars and with the support of other community partners encourage residents to Complete the Census and Register to Vote. This caravan will culminate into a Neighborhood Clean Up therein the Frayser Community.  

With the September 30th deadline quickly approaching for residents to

complete the 2020 Census, Memphis Urban League Young Professionals and

community partners recognize the importance of bringing awareness to and

encouraging residents to complete the Census, especially those in underserved

communities. We also recognize the importance of Service, as it is one of the

primary pillars of Urban League. “We hope that by providing this service to the

community and hosting this caravan, it will encourage our community

members to want more and demand better for the community in which they

live. It is our hope they will recognize the importance of completing the census

to receive federal funding for schools, roads and many other community needs

and also recognize the importance of registering to vote and actually

participate in the Fall election,” says MULYP President Ashlee Hafford.
