Using Our Collective Power

In anticipation of the November 2020 national and state election, the Urban Core Collective has launched a civic engagement program. We will conduct voter education and outreach to increase registration, absentee voting and diversity of poll workers. 

A part of the Movement Voter Project, we hope to strengthen the collective power of our community by organizing youth and communities of color for August and November. Turning out voters and uplifting the voices of our community on issues that impact us is key to winning politically, socially and economically.
