This month, join us in supporting the Movement for Black Lives and the Electoral Justice League.
Saturdays at 1pm throughout the month of May, help us support the Compassionate Resistance Campaign, an opportunity for us to gather and give in the name of justice and hope. You can simply come to class, you can donate to the jar on the desk, and we will do the rest.
The Electoral Justice Project (EJP) is a project of the Movement for Black Lives that seeks to continue a long legacy of social movements fighting for the advancement of the rights of Black folks through electoral strategy. We recognize that electoral work alone will not change the conditions plaguing Black communities, but we believe that Black people deserve a loving and strategic political home to seek transformational political change.
The Movement for Black Lives is launching the Electoral Justice League, an intensive cohort and coaching process that will resource 12 Black organizers for the 2018-2019 election cycle to gain progressive candidate and advocacy wins in their communities. They seek to :
- Develop a Black Political Identity by investing in building a black radical political project and translating our public policy demands & national platform to further connect with our people.
- Grow the Capacity of Black led Grassroot Organizations to champion a political strategy in their communities.
- Expand & Mobilize the Black Electorate by recruiting, training, and sending out Black messengers to engage Black voters on local issues that affect their lives.
- Build a Political Home for ALL Black people.
