Who we are
In the 2016 presidential election, more than three million Black people in six key states were eligible to vote but didn’t. If even one out of three of those eligible-but-nonvoting Black people had voted, America would have a different President, Senate, and Supreme Court.
BlockPower was founded to increase Black voter turnout and civic engagement in this election cycle and beyond. It is powered by a platform that makes grassroots get-out-the-vote efforts more efficient, effective, and safe by enabling contactless voter engagement and using data to guide outreach. The platform assists in recruiting, training, and paying Black micro-organizers (Ambassadors) to identify, motivate, and empower Black non-voters (Triplers) they already know. We have partnered with the New Georgia Project (one of Stacey Abrams' groups), Black Leaders Organizing for Communities in Milwaukee, and Color of Change in Florida and are supporting efforts in North Carolina and Arizona to invest directly in Black communities and amplify Black voices.
By focusing relational voter engagement efforts in these three key states using the BlockPower model and platform, we can change the course of the 2020 general election to ensure a more just, equitable, and progressive future.
Are you passionate about making a difference in this election?
