Join the Movement for Voting Rights!
In honor of Black History Month, the Voting Rights Alliance created a historic archive of the legacies and stories of the heroes, sheroes, and events in the fight for Black suffrage. Each day of Black History Month 2017, the Voting Rights Alliance shared a new calendar article, honoring a person, organization, or event, from over 5 centuries that forever changed the movement for the right to vote for African Americans and all Americans.
We shared each article on social media underneath the hashtag #VRABlackHistory. Follow us on Twitter (@VRAmatters) to see the series' tweets. We also emailed these articles out every morning of February 2017. For 2018, we will be resurrecting this series and introducing 8 new articles!
Our last Facebook Live Event of the year! Tune in! Panelisrs include: Barbara R. Arnwine, founder of the Transformative Justice Coalition, Reverend Lennox Yearwood, founder of the Hip Hop Caucus, and our moderator Toni van Pelt, president of National Organization for Women (NOW). Issues to be discussed include: An analysis and review of voter turnout and voter suppression in 2017 elections, special elections, and nationwide, including Alabama and Virginia, and what we need to gear up for 2018. #Virginia #Alabama #ALSenate
