Take the Field is part of BVM’s mission to expand Black voter engagement and increase progressive power, starting at the grassroots level. The campaign will include capacity-building training for student teams to provide guidance on what campus activism can look like and how best to prepare. Here’s how we’re making that happen:
- BVM will provide $500 awards to 50 student-led groups
- We’ll also be hosting trainings and providing additional materials to help students organize more effectively
- We’ll provide opportunities for amplification of your work, so that student voices reach a larger audience
Like the Anti-Apartheid Movement in South Africa and the Black Lives Matter movement of today, youth activism is critical to the protection of our democracy and ensuring that Black communities are treated fairly and equitably. We can’t wait to partner with you, our future leaders!
