2020 Voter Protection Program


The Voter Protection Program (VoPro) is a national non-partisan initiative led by the National Filipino American Lawyers Association (NFALA). In an effort to protect the vote and the rights of Filipino Americans for the upcoming 2020 General Election, VoPro will create a blueprint to provide trusted information in English and Tagalog, especially in key battleground states.


The right to vote is the one right that preserves all others. This November, it’s imperative that all of us are able to vote when we show up to the polls. NFALA is committed to securing your right to vote through the VoPro initiative.

VoPro is comprised of over thirty NFALA attorneys from our various affiliates across the nation. They will be available to answer questions via phone, email, or text from voters in three key states where there are large concentrations of Filipinos — California, Arizona, and Nevada.
