WEEKLY E-BLAST

We’ve been traveling across the South, preparing for the runoff elections. Check out a recap of our recent events below ⬇️

Collard Green Caucus

Ahead of Thanksgiving, we worked with local partners in Georgia to spread love and power by distributing fresh greens, turkeys, and more to over 3,500 Georgian families. We are proud to have been able to work with local Black farmers to feed our communities sustainably for the holiday.

Souls to the Polls 

Over the past few weeks, we have been on the road visiting different cities and towns across the state of Georgia to mobilize our communities to get to the polls and cast their ballots in the runoff election. This election is crucial in determining who will represent our communities, which is why we need you to get out and vote.

Bayou Classic 

Last week, the Blackest Bus in America was at the Bayou Classic in Louisiana talking to voters about the issues that matter most to them ahead of the runoff election. We worked to equip voters with the tools that they need to get to the polls and cast their ballots before or on December 10th.

Early voting has begun in Georgia and Louisiana! 

Right now, you can head to the polls and cast your ballot in the runoff elections in both Georgia and Louisiana. Both of these elections are crucial in making sure that our communities have the representation that they deserve. In Louisiana, there are 4 more days of early voting and in Georgia, there are 3 more days of early voting. We encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity and get to the polls early!
