Young voters are eager to see racism undone, and they see electoral politics as a means of achieving this goal. Join us to hear about how a coalition came together to turn solid research into a meaningful, effective campaign with language and concepts focused on voting as an act of individual and collective empowerment. Contrary to popular assumptions, messages of unity motivate voters more than messages of hate and division.
