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!

“We wanted to create an inter-generational movement, in which veterans in the fight for voters’ rights can lock arms with Millennials and Generation Z to ‘get into good trouble’ as the late great John Lewis once stated. We want young people to know the importance of their vote,” said cofounders of Black Women for Biden Dr. Stephanie E. Myers and the Honorable Daun S. Hester in a joint statement.
