Black Voters Matter Fund deploying voter outreach caravans in 12 states to drive turnout

The Black Voters Matter Fund (BVMF), a nonprofit organization aimed at mobilizing voters in marginalized and predominantly Black communities, has announced a massive voter outreach initiative seeking to engage Black voters and boost turnout as the presidential election inches closer.

As part of the effort, which will span 12 states, BVMF said it will be rolling out radio advertisements, digital public service announcements as well voter caravans in a bid to engage and rally Black voters.

LaTosha Brown, who co-founded the organization in 2016 along with political strategist Cliff Albright, said in a statement that “with just seven weeks until Election Day, it is more important than ever that voters remain active, informed, and engaged.”


“We are in the midst of a historic election year, one where Americans -- particularly Black Americans -- face the compounding crises of a global pandemic, record-high unemployment, police brutality, and rampant voter suppression,” she said.
