At a time when democracy is under assault, we believe that expanding participation in our elections and increasing the diversity of voices participating in solving our community’s and our nation’s most challenging problems in critical to the health and longevity of our democracy. Given the historical barriers aimed at disenfranchising African-American voters, we believe that a focused effort to engage, mobilize, organize, and build political power in our communities is a necessary part of expanding our democracy.
Black voters are the core of the modern progressive coalition. We engage our community around the issues that matter most from protecting our voting rights to a fair economy and quality schools for our children, to criminal justice reform and a healthcare system that works for everyone. We believe in talking to Black voters on these issues at their doors, in their neighborhoods, online, and by mail. We educate, register, and mobilize Black voters, and use our power to hold our elected representatives accountable.
