Virtual Event: A Call to Action

You’re invited to a virtual event on Friday, July 24 at 6 p.m. on Zoom for young voters and the civically engaged to gather, collaborate and speak on the importance of voting in honor of the life & legacy of Congressman John Lewis.

On Friday, July 24 at 6 p.m. (EST) the national volunteer advocacy group Black Women for Biden will host a virtual event to affirm the following: You are powerful and so is your vote!
