Evelyn Williams

Evelyn Williams, moved to the US in 1987 from Jamaica and became a citizen in 1998. Evelyn has been volunteering with PICC since December 2014.

“I signed up to volunteer because I think voter registration and civic engagement is important. I wish they had voter registration after my citizenship ceremony, maybe more people could have registered right away instead of waiting so long. I didn’t register to vote until I got my drivers license a year later.

I would recommend this program to anyone, it is fun and makes you feel like you are accomplishing a lot. I enjoy interacting with people from all over the world, the volunteers and PICC’s staff too, they are really nice. I want to volunteer as long as I can!
