Black Voters Matter Co-founder Cliff Albright on Amplifying the Black Vote
Organizer:Leadership Now Project
Join us for a briefing with Cliff Albright, Co-Founder and Executive Director at Black Voters Matter Fund, one of our 2020-II Portfolio organizations. BVM received national attention in 2017 when they helped mobilize Black voters during the U.S. Senate race between Doug Jones and Roy Moore. In 2018, Albright and the BVM team travelled throughout seven southern states in "The Blackest Bus in America" energizing voters and exposing voter suppression. We will discuss their voter registration effort March on Ballot Boxes (M.O.B.B), the power of relational organizing, and ways to fight back against the voter suppression they have seen already in primary elections across the U.S.
