SCOPE50’s primary purpose is to promote and encourage voter registration nationally, and to assist with “get out the vote” activities throughout the country.  SCOPE50 is a non-partisan organization.  We will not work for nor support any candidate or party.  We will not be in opposition to any candidate.  Our main purpose is voter registration and educating people on a grassroots level on the responsibility of citizenship.


SCOPE50 works in various communities on voter registration and political education.  We partner with local community organizations, institutions, and churches, for example, the League of Women Voters.  Also, we go into high schools and encourage juniors and seniors to register to vote and teach them about the importance of voting.  We will go to colleges as well to promote voter registration.  Future programs might include working to improve literacy and basic educational skills and fighting childhood poverty.  SCOPE50 will also work to preserve the history of SCOPE and the Civil Rights Movement by sharing documents and other items with historical associations and institutions, such as the Library of Congress.
