February 28, 2017- The Transformative Justice Coalition (2015-present) and what you can do to advance voting rights (2017) #VRABlackHistory

Thank you for following our #VRABlackHistory series, where for 28 days we have recognized, honored, and educated the public about a person, organization or event - spanning over five centuries - that forever changed the movement for African-American suffrage.

In honor of Black History Month, all month long we have shared the legacies and stories of the heroes, sheroes, and events in the fight for Black suffrage on social media under the hashtag #VRABlackHistory. Follow us on Twitter (@VRAmatters) to share your own facts.

Today, on February 28, 2017, with the twenty-eighth and last article in this series, we end of the #VRABlackHistory Series with a special two-part extended edition as we honor The Transformative Justice Coalition and educate about what you can do to advance voting rights.
