Ohio Unity Coalition: Black Civic Engagement Campaign
Whether there’s an election next week, next month, or later this year, NOW is the time for action!
The Ohio Unity Coalition, state chapter of the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation, is continually working to register and update voter registrations, verify registration statuses, share important information inform through social media and door-to-door, and empower African Americans across Ohio to have their say EVERY second Tuesday of November on Election Day.
Our goal is to close the registration gap that leaves black voter turnout trailing behind other constituency groups, and to make sure our communities are empowered to speak to the issues they are experiencing and be heard through the democratic process of electing civic leaders. There are lots of ways you can make a difference!
1. Volunteer with your local Ohio Unity Coalition chapter! Join to get trained to register voters, get informational materials to distribute around your community, and hit the streets with us to register voters in the Spring, Summer & Fall in Cleveland, Toledo, Columbus, Youngstown, Dayton, Cincinnati, and Akron/Canton.
2. Receive our newsletter! If you can’t volunteer with us, you can still engage and educate your friends, family, and community members by forwarding emails onto others and sharing the info out on social media.
3. Follow, share, and tweet! Engage with us on Twitter, Facebook & Instagram and get more of your friends in on the need for Black Civic Participation!
