We Must Defend the Black Vote

For decades, the Black vote in America has sustained attack after attack from the far right. But we will not be silenced. Our voices – and our votes – matter.

Defend the Black Vote aims to increase Black voter turnout among men, ages 18-50, who have been some of the most disenfranchised voters in America. Despite facing similar discrimination in voting, Black women are already among the most engaged voters in the country.
