Civic Engagement

With a government elected by its citizens, this effects every aspect of our lives from schools, to health care, to homeland security, voting is an important right in our society. By voting, you are making your voice heard and registering your opinion on how you think the government should operate. The National Tongan American Society is dedicated to educating our society and community on avenues on how to register and to become involved in important issues in our community, by offering not only voter registration, but also Voter Education and Policy Training. If you are interested or need more information please contact our Civic Engagement Director: Penina White (801)467-8712.
