“Nothing About Us Without Us”: Students and Communities of Color in the Electoral Process
September 23, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:15 pm EDT
For students and communities of color, voting has been used as one important aspect of building power in the United States. Initiatives across the country, who focus on civic engagement in communities of color, have been successful at increasing voter participation and disrupting barriers to political engagement. Our three panelists represent organizations that activate the collective voices of students of color to mobilize voter participation of their families and communities beyond the campus setting. The webinar taps the national expertise of JoAnne Fields is the Government & Public Relations Director for Asian Pacific Islander Initiative, Pedro Lira is the Civic Engagement Director of Jolt Action, and Jaime Turner is a Democracy Fellow with the NAACP.
