“This is a very direct, strategic path to win electoral votes. There's never been a national focus on turning out women of color like this, and certainly not one that starts 12 months out." She the People Founder Aimee Allison for NBC on the organization’s national voter mobilization effort focused exclusively on women of color. Learn more and join the movement at www.shethepeople.org.
What we are reading:
“Funders ought to use our access and relationships within philanthropy to open more minds” and make sure that, in year end giving campaigns, and especially leading into 2020, they are funding the people “overrepresented in success at social change — women of color who lead grass-roots nonprofits.” Vanessa Daniel on why philanthropy shuts women of color out of funding for the New York Times.
With 2020 nearly upon us, we are looking back at a report released last year by AAPI Civic Engagement with election eve polling data from the 2018 midterms that shows the power of people of color to influence election outcomes in communities across the U.S. through unprecedented levels of civic engagement and voter mobilization.
