Civil Rights Leaders Launch Our Vote Matters Tour


Bus to Tour NE Ohio and North Carolina to GOTV

OCT 22, 2016 – From their website:

“CLEVELAND, Ohio (October 21, 2016) –  As the nation faces the first Presidential election without the full protection of the Voting Rights Act, the nation’s top racial justice advocacy groups today launched a bus tour to encourage voting among people of color, students and other vulnerable citizens.

“When you have top political leaders actually encouraging voter intimidation, it’s more important than ever for every citizen to know their rights and exercise them with determination,” National Urban League President and CEO Marc H. Morial said. “It’s taken a full generation to get African-American voting rates to the same level as whites, and we can’t allow that progress to be destroyed.”

“Our Vote Matters,” a national voter education and motivation campaign began touring northeast Ohio today, kicking off with a news conference at the Urban League of Greater Cleveland.
“Cleveland is Ohio’s most diverse city so it’s particularly important we make our voices heard,” Cleveland affiliate President and CEO Marsha Mockabee said.
The bus tour includes rallies with entertainment and prizes with a focus on getting out the vote.”
