"Working in the health care field, being informed on policies that affect our community’s health is vital. Our government affects every aspect of our lives from health care to education, and it’s the right and responsibility of this nation’s citizens to elect its officials and influence change. Voting provides us a powerful opportunity to help shape public policy. Through our alliance with Democracy at Work, we’re proud to report that we’ve registered nearly 3,000 employees and patients to vote. AltaMed provides a work culture that empowers our employees with the knowledge and tools to become more civically engaged.”
“We appreciate how proactive Secretary of State Padilla and his staff are in encouraging Californians to exercise their right to vote.”
“We were excited to partner with the Office of California Secretary of State Alex Padilla to implement a series of nonpartisan educational activities as part of the Secretary’s “Democracy at Work” Campaign to increase knowledge regarding voter registration. It was truly impactful to have the Secretary himself visit personally to bring attention to this important information and share his personal story as we engaged our faculty, staff, patients and their families.”
“Now more than ever, it's important that we show our support for employee participation in elections -- from getting informed to registering and voting. That's why it was important for us to partner with Democracy at Work. We want to do our part as a company to promote civic engagement and encourage good citizenship beyond the workplace.”
