ABOUT THE PRESENTERS: 

Vot-ER is bridging a gap in care with a groundbreaking prescription: civic engagement. Our mission is to empower patients and healthcare professionals to address the root causes of health disparities through civic participation. By doing so, we're not just treating symptoms — we're fostering a healthier, more equitable society. Our swift and easy HIPAA compliant resources promote employee happiness, combat burnout, and cultivate deeper trust between the healthcare professional and patient. Since our founding in 2020, Vot-ER has expanded, with over 350 institutional partnerships, 700 participating sites, and 50,000 healthcare professionals. Our movement has been featured by The New York Times, CNN, Washington Post, NBC, NPR, and PBS NewsHour. Recognizing that 83% of adults will visit a healthcare facility in the next year, we understand the critical role these spaces can play in voter registration and turnout, which directly impact public health and investment. Together, we can uplift patients’ voices in shaping local, state, and federal health policy, through the power of their vote.

PACE is the political action committee of Minnesota’s NASW Chapter, dedicated to advancing social workers’ public policy goals by supporting candidates for office who support NASW policy issues and align with the values and ethics of the social work profession. The PACE committee develops an endorsement process, makes endorsement decisions, and informs members of which candidates the NASW-MN is endorsing.
