On September 21, 2012 Ceiba joined forces with other Latino organizations in Philadelphia to provide free assistance to voters in need of photo identification. Under a new Pennsylvania law, all voters will be required to present photo ID in order to be able to vote.
The clinic, which took place at Congreso, provided information and help on how to get an acceptable form of ID to vote. For those people who had their documents with them, the clinic provided free transportation to the PennDOT offices so that they could apply for their state-issued photo ID that same day.
Univisión was on site to interview clinic organizers and participants. See the full video of the Univisión news report here. (Video in Spanish.)
